^I am in complete agreement with KingDaniel
. While I disagree with most of Hal
's post, the sex commentary is the only things that really made me stop and go, "Wait... what?!?!?" This was not the only place in Trek where they made out, and it's not even the only place where they were in their skivvies. I wouldn't go so far to call it soft porn and I definitely wouldn't call it gratuitous.
As for the next movie... anything you've read is purely fan speculation. The only thing we really know about the next movie is that it will be with this group and that it will have a bad guy. And... well, that's about it.
