I guess that's one of my strongest reasons why I don't want the writing team back. Their treatment of the female characters is just embarrassing. Sure, Uhura can speak Klingon and wants to resolve this dangerous situation in a diplomatic way, but this isn't an episode of Star Trek. This is a blockbuster action film, and when you pay for a huge set, Klingons with weapons and our characters armed with weapons, you're attempt to give Uhura a moment ends up being useless because you're writing her to fail.
This doesn't even make any sense.

Anyway, I read what Nerys Myk wrote as being about the writers of Space Seed. Unless someone has a Ouija board, I'm pretty sure that neither Coon nor Wilber will be coming back!

a person like Robert Orci
Eh, he knows what he did.
