^Thank you. So, my mistake. With a still shot, close-up, you can see it. But, this was at the very end of the film where the camera is on him for like a second, in an up-angle, and while he's kind of hunched. It's not like Pegg, where we got to see him walking about in his uniform and interacting with people in better lighting, but then he's Scotty... I'm just glad to know that they did give him an uniform. That makes me feel better about his future development.
Remember also that, when we first see Scotty, he's not in uniform, either (must be not a uniform-dress kind of Starfleet facility, or something.) He does get one after his trip through the Turbine Room tubes and Spock's beatdown of Kirk on the bridge, but Keenser (along with oldSpock) presumably doesn't get off the Delta Vega outpost until some time after Earth is saved, Pike rescued and Nero defeated, so we don't see him in uniform until Enterprise
is repaired and heading back out under Kirk's command.
I just hope to see him in good lighting with his uniform on this time, doing a bit of interacting, even briefly. And now that he's on the Enterprise, it'd be good to know what his job is.

And Keenser *can* speak. He only says one word in the film (when Scotty says "Unless you know of some other half-starved Starfleet officer" and Keenser pipes up "Me!"), but it is there.
Before Keenser appears for the first time - right after Kirk and Spock Prime first enter the Delta Vega facility - we hear some things that might be Keenser speaking in his native language. It's right before we see him appear at the end of the corridor and start walking towards Kirk and Spock.
I'd have to watch the corridor part, but I do remember the "Me!," part now that you mention it. It's been a while since I've watched the film, and I'm going off of a dusty memory--Not the best thing!
Well, maybe with this next film he'll get more than "Me!" and some under-his-breath noises. I'd just like to know what race he is. I don't remember the movie stating that, or did it?
More on this from Zachary
simmer down kids. rumors are rumors for a reason. quotes out of context. let's let the second movie come out before we talk about a third...
Link - Twitter
At the moment, it's too early to think about the third movie right at the moment. The second one will be awesome.
Thanks for the link. I haven't read his twitter in a while. I don't know about calling everybody "kids," but what he said doesn't really refute what he said previously. He's basically delaying the conversation. He should be able to say if he's interested in doing a 3rd movie or not, or if he's under contract for a 3rd movie, which is what I believe is the case. Anyway, thinking about it now is not going to change what happens with the second movie, so I'll just hope for the best with the second movie (if S/U stay together).
And of course, I'm wishing him the best, whatever he decides...
