Nu-Spock/ Nu-Uhura Break Up....NO WAY.
 
In the light of the recent synopsis about how love will be challenged. I see that some people are hoping that S/U will break up as they believe that Spock should not be in any relationship.

Well guess what? It is not Spock, it is not TOS Spock, Orignal Spock, Spock Prime, Nimoy’s Spock or whatever you call him, Spock is not in a relationship with uhura. Nu-Spock is. They are different people.

when I got into Nolan's Batman series I also didn’t go on a rampage about how Bruce/Batman never loved Rachel.

Heck, Rachel was never even in the comics, TV series or past movies. Nolan created the character just for his Batman film series. I also didn’t see hardcore Bat fans screaming at Nolan for paring Bruce up with someone they didnt know or didnt exist at all in the DC Universe.

All movies despite its genre needs romance, a story is never complete without a romantic subplot. Sure I thought the first film will end with Kirk/Uhura been a couple but at the end, I warmed up to Spock/Uhura.

it was so shocking and unpredictable and very different in comparison to other romantic subplots in movies. Normally it is the handsome hero aka Jim Kirk that should get the girl and not the geek but JJ pulled a Shrek instead. I hope it stay that way.

S/U already has a huge fanbase and is already part of our popular culture.I hope JJ and his crew don’t give into the pressure put on them by the S/U haters who are mostly Slash fans ..... a base that has become a loud minority.

This issue has been talked about to death. Even Startrek.com did a poll asking if Kirk/Spock are gay and 84% of the fans said no. Here is the link: http://www.startrek.com/boards-topic...ock-gay?page=1




Do I want to see,read or hear that TOS Spock and TOS Uhura get together in the orignal timeline? NO

Do I want to see Nu-Spock and Nu-uhura get together again in Trek 2013? YES

So no...no break up at all.Unless the break up is similar to the Aragon/Arwen break in the Lord Of The Rings: The Two Towers.

Are you actually calling Spock ugly?

But I wrote JJ a letter. He has to listen to me.

No I am not calling Spock ugly my reference to Shrek was the fact that Shrek was a fairy tale story that did everything backwards.

Unlike Shrek Spock has been the object of female ardor for decades. He had plenty of loves in TOS. Giving him a girlfriend is hardly doing anything backwards.

That's a rather hefty dose of hyperbole. Among Joe Public - if you're lucky - most people will be aware that there was a Star Trek movie a few years back featuring a young Kirk and Spock. That's it. I think it's a tad premature to pronounce S/U as a part of our popular culture.

OMG...What I mean is in a typical film, Kirk would have gotten the girl and not Spock,Kirk is the main character and he is the Hero.The girl is and should be his but JJ said he didnt want it that way.According to JJ, Kirk never stood a chance.

And yes TOS Spock had so many loves,more proof that TOS Spock is nothing like Quinto's Spock.

So I dont know why some TOS purist are demanding that Quinto's Spock should become more like TOS Spock.


Even TOS Spock has told him to ditch the logic thing and do what feels his right.

I prefer Nu-Spock because of my undying love for Zachary Quinto.:)

We have no idea how much NuSpock has gotten before we see him in ST:XI. He might have gone through half the cadets.

You have to understand, there are rumors about Vulcans that some young ladies are going to be very curious about, and when they actually have one right there in front of them wearing real pants and not robes they are going to want to try him out.

You know, whatever they do is what they do. At this point, I'm not really bothered. It looks like it's time for me to move on. If by chance I hear that it's good when it comes out and that S/U stay together, then I'll give it a shot. Until then, whatever.

"Love being challenged" = S/U having a more prominent part than in STXI. Whether they break up or not will be to this film what "Does Janeway return?" was to The Eternal Tide.

Ever hear of The Wizard of Oz? Inherit the Wind? Twelve Angry Men? Billy Budd? All the President's Men? Das Boot? No Escape? A Clockwork Orange? 2001: A Space Odyssey?

I don't care about romance one way or the other.

I don't care for romance, but I do like love stories.

As long as it's a nice action flick, they'll make a profit. So, whatever they decide to do is up to them. It doesn't matter. There's always something else for people interested in love.

Maybe that's the case, and maybe not. I think this movie will be about Kirk and and it will have lots of action. That will work well enough.

There's a difference. I just don't feel like typing about it. I went through that whole business at trekmovie and I was attacked by someone there for providing actual real definitions, lol. I think I'm done defending S/U or discussing love stories versus romances. It doesn't look like either one will apply much for the next film anyway, so it doesn't really matter.
