^ Thanks for the background info and links, Christopher
. Very cool.
To be clear, I agree that there definitely is a range of ethnicities present among the extras playing the Enterprise
crew, and it's clear that the crowd at Starfleet is also somewhat ethnically diverse. All I meant was that, as I was watching the movie, the ethnic diversity seemed much less noticeable, to such a degree that I remember remarking on it to myself. That's clearly an issue of perception, not of the particular extras they hired. Still, it's interesting.
