I might have missed it, but did Uhura have a slicked back, long ponytail in TOS? Did any of the female characters wear that wierd bun on a stick (which by the way, I hope they lose)?
Not TOS, but there are a few bun-heads in the background of the movie.

This is a snippet from the article about the interview he gave stating which characters would not be in the movie.

' “All I can say is that when I did that radio interview I had just been doing 22 hours of press. I had just got off a flight from New Zealand…,” said Orci.'
I just explained this to you earlier in the thread, in fact it's quoted at the top of the page.

Also Orci has just declared the Comics canon, which he semi-declared a while back anyway, which should take care of the Gary Mitchell speculation once and for all.
What? I was addressing a question asked by another poster. It seems to me that anyone doing an interview after 22hrs of press, flight, or sitting on the toilet, is not his right mind to be doing another interview right behind it and give correct information. I hope I have explained it to you.
Yea, sitting on the toilet for 22 hours would definitely wear someone out and make their interview afterwards unreliable

Or it may make them slip-up in a way that they wouldn't otherwise...

Bob Orci was not doing "22 hours of press." He was taking the piss out on Karl Urban's very similar quote from a few days before. Hence Anthony following up with "Nice callback."

It definitely explains this article title:

Damon Lindelof talks about struggle to find title for Star Trek Sequel (Without a Colon.)

Maybe the other canon character is Roberta Logan.
My favorite suggestion so far. All the Khan/Mitchell/not Khan/not Mitchell gabble is distraction.

Christopher pretty much nails this one on the head over in Trek Lit: only the tie-ins are required to follow that decree, the movies can contradict the "canon" comics any time they like.

But it does bring up great fodder that the movie and Countdown contradict each other and yet are both canon. And so is Nero's 25 year journey to meet V'ger.

I think he was joking about the comics being canon...
I'm not so sure...

Their not canon.

He was not kidding. Ask him yourself. He and I have been talking about this for a while. He even noted in our 'is movie character canon' game (see my previously posted interview) that if they put a movie character into the comics before the release of the movie does that make them already canon, which we agreed yes but not part of the 'original canon'.

So no, this is no joke. Although I suspect CBS needs to get on board for it. As noted in the interview, Paramount are already in agreement that the game is canon. I suspect IDW would also welcome it.
Hmmm....

The comics are a tie-in to the movie, but I'm not sure I buy them being canon. Any which way, I wasn't counting on Mitchell, coming back from the dead and being the villain.

Orci did that interview with AICN amost two weeks before Urban got this wild hair up somewhere and decided to pull our legs.

Yes, Roberta Lincoln. Teri Garr was great in it. But I've always thought that if they had to re-do that character, they should pull in Lisa Kudrow.
