i think it's borderline racist that star trek hasn't got half-chilean, half-latvian character given that they are two countries that exist and have people in them!
Do you think Paramount will ask Abrams and his team to include a half-chilean, half-latvian character played by some well-known half-chilean, half-latvian actor or actress?
Or maybe give Scotty more to do? he's close enough.
It won't matter. Star Trek will be racist until they get a real live Vulcan to play Spock.
