Well, from what little we know, Eve's character is a scientist, weapons expert and plays a key role in defeating Harrison. So I'd say she's far more than a beautiful face & body in this.

It's a great trailer. Garth from Dark Horizons is saying that most of what is in this trailer is from the footage that has been screened publicly already, meaning there are still surprises in store.

I hate to admit this but I am starting to see the sexism a lot of people on trekmovie.com have been complaining about.

Alice Eve in her bra and panties was the worst part of the trailer. Its like it was just put there for the sake of making guys horny and for the sake of having a woman get nearly naked.

And what’s with the pose?

For a split second I thought I was watching a model about to step on the fashion
Catwalk (modelling lingerie) instead of a science fiction trailer.

In 2009, I brushed off the people who called Uhura a sexist character after she stripped down to her bra and panties but now that I see another woman doing the same thing, I am beginning to see a pattern here.

Nu Trek does objectify women.

Because of course, every single one of the above were necessary and valid plot points that were integral to the story.

I have my beef with NuTrek, but honestly, it's obvious she's changing into a space suit of some kind and Kirk is in the room and comments on her body - He's James T. Kirk. That shot is equally as valid as all the examples I've cited above.
Aww M. you're no fun at times!

I'm saying this not because I want these pics splashed all over this thread (egads) but because when you edited the hotlinks out, the post lost the point it was making.

EDIT: Eeek. for some reason, I thought you were M'Sharak! Sorry but my point holds

I'm beginning to think all the people that that complain about the new movies and sexism and bad writing never watched TOS. I love TOS, it's my fav in the franchise, but let's be honest it was a product of its time. Even TNG forward was only slightly better; better but not leaps and bounds so.
Yup, there will probably always be sexy, half-naked women in Star Trek, and I wouldn't want it any other way.

As long as that's not the only way women are viewed in Trek (and it wasn't even on TOS), I don't see a problem at all with it.
Bingo.

So someone please tell me how these:



Are somehow better or any different than this:

Yeah because every man is attracted to women. [/sarcasm]
Roughly 90% are and so are around 10% of women. That's a big market. Spock and Kirk seem to pull in the rest of the population.

The whole Eve thing is really sad. What were they thinking?

If she has sex with Kirk in this at least I hope it happens with the lights out, under the sheets, in the missionary position and for the sole purpose of procreation.

Imagine the shit storm if they follow classic-canon and she ends up pregnant and she leaves him cause he doesn't want to leave the service.

No, his lifelong dream was to score with every single species with compatible genitals and any other that he could work around. Like V'Ger if it was a puss-hound.

That's hilarious. Well done, sport. I guess we can add virgin to the list.
