Because when there's only one woman on the team (the anti-hostage paramilitary team), asking her to shake her ass to distract the enemy is ... embarrasing? shouldn't work? not cool?

Don't get me wrong - she's hot. But it is DAMNED IRREGULAR!
Maybe she suggested it. "Captain, what would distract you?"

Re: Why so little Uhura in ST3?

Funny, at a con before the release Nichols was so proud of that scene, but later after the movie bombed--she said it was out-of-character.


You know if the movie had box office through the roof---she would have stuck with her first impression.

Re: Why so little Uhura in ST3?

Similarly, Doohan said before the film was released that they all had a great time, Shat was a great director, and he hoped Shat would get to direct Trek VI. As soon as the critics and fans dogpiled on the movie, though, he changed his tune very quickly.

Re: Why so little Uhura in ST3?

^Yep, I heard Doohan say the same thing at a con in West Palm prior to release--very diplomatic.

I think that since the movies (and Cons ) were their sole support they felt they had no choice but to pump it before the release and similarly afterward, thinking the bad box office combined with the focus on TNG had hurt their income they were especially bitter.

I've just rewatched ST3 and noticed a few things.

One, is that it's a much better film than I remember
Yes.

It's a much better film than all the lazy "All the odd numbered ones SUXORZZZ!!!1!" idiots claim too. They are just too lazy to realize III is in the middle there and they go with this stupid rule.

Anyways, one thing that's puzzled me is that Uhura is completely absent after the transporter scene with "Mr Adventure" until the final scene on Vulcan.

I'm amazed I never noticed before. Can anyone shed any light on this? Is there some backstage story concerning Nichelle Nichols?
Uhura went to the Vulcan embassy to alert Sarek as to the plan. It is all elaborated on in the book.

Re: Why so little Uhura in ST3?

So the people who don't like TSFS feel that way because a 'stupid rule' tells them so?

Brilliant.

Re: Why so little Uhura in ST3?

I am not talking about the people that genuinely disliked the film.

I am referring to, as I said above, all the lazy stupid people who just simply parrot the "every odd numbered film sucks" rule.

I ALWAYS really liked TMP, I LOVED III and enjoyed GEN. I pretty much despised TFF but that's pretty universal. In my experience, all but one of the odd numbered films were good-GREAT.

My partner and I are going through the films(he has never seen them before)and guess what his favourite is so far?

He LOVED TMP!!!!

He said he LOVED the '70's SF design aesthetic and the grand story and the evolved humanity theme. I showed him TWoK and said, "If you felt that way about TMP, you're going to LOVE this one...." and guess what?

He finished it and said, "What was all the fuss about? Why do people label TWoK as this GREAT movie?!? TMP was a MUCH better movie!"


So, there ya go.

All the lazy "The odd numbered films suxOrZZZZ!!!!!1!!!!!!!!11" people can shove that rule "up their shaft".

I remember reading some slash about what Uhura did with "Mister Adventure" in that closet.

Jeez!

Joe, not easily shocked
When did "Mister Adventure" have a sex change?

Slashfic is between same-sex characters.

Maybe there was another male still in the closet?

Agreed! And I'd hit Uhura in the shape she was when she did the fan dance. Hell yeah! I've got a fever, and the only prescription is more fan dance!

"Celebrity Skin". Almost any issue from the 80s had her nudes from the early 60s.
