Re: Star Trek Into Darkness & The Bechdel Test
Of course it's the God-damned Kirk and Spock show, they are culturally relevant to the main-stream crowd. It's like bitching about a Batman movie because it focuses too much on Batman.
Then where do these pop-culture catch-phrases come from?
"I'm a doctor, not a _fill_in_the_blanks_" (McCoy)
"Beam me up Scotty" (Kirk)
"Hailing frequencies open" (Uhura)
"Nuclear wessels" (Chekov)
Let alone the fact that George Takei is now the king of Facebook.
What prize do I get?
