Re: Was Uhura a linguist?

It depends how you define "different" and where you draw the line between "new actor playing the role their way" and "that person must be totally different because they're not exactly copying the original actor's mannerisms"

IIRC the new actors were allowed to choose just how much of the originals' they incorporated into their versions if the characters. I remember reading in an interview years ago that nuChekov was told he didn't have to do the silly accent if he didn't want to.

James Cromwell's Zephram Cochrane bore zero resemblence to the TOS "Metamorphosis" version, yet we accept it's meant to be the same guy.
