I agree with you whole heartedly but I do believe I read that Alice Eve was signed on for the next movie. When asked about this she joked about having a romance and a baby so maybe (I know, but a girl can dream) since they usually are so secretive about story lines this time around they will have a different out come. But something tells me with they way this reboot is going there will be a romance and a child. Though maybe we will get lucky. Seems that even with Spock and Uhura that not much romance is shown nor much relationship material with regards to issues except in a humorous manner. In other words I have no idea.
