  1. They seem to have Kirk sleep with Uhura. I’d say, no they don’t handle sexuality any better.

    Until I saw that trailer the other day I hadn’t quite decided if I wouild bother to see the film. Now I won’t. I’m just not interested in a bunch of kids that have to command a ship, we already had a DS9 episode like that. Also filling the screen with ships all over the place isn’t big drama, it’s just confusing. It’s not a cohesive invitation to watch further, it’s just flashy picture after flashy picture.

  2. I don’t think Kirk sleeps with Uhura (that’s an Orion slave girl if I’m not mistaken).

    I just don’t want any more of the Enterprise-teehee-I-saw-your-boobies-approach.

  3. @Campaigner

    You sir are correct, Diora Baird was cast as an Orion. Do yourself a favor and GIS, her Playboy spread was phenomenal.

    Haters be damned, this movie is going to farking rule.

  4. If you say so. I can’t see the difference. Maybe her dark skin is because the room is dark and she’s in Kirk’s shadow.
