It does appear that Uhura is number three now, yeah. Completely understandable in several respects.

Or maybe instead of a "Big Three" this franchise will have a "Big Four"...?

Re: And Another New Poster!

There's been nothing released thus far to suggest that McCoy has a significant role to play in the plot. He gets his moments - such as the opening sequence - but there's no indication that he plays a central role in the main story.

Re: And Another New Poster!

Didn't Orci just Tweet that McCoy plays a "key role" in the film?

One of the things I noticed is that Uhura has her own poster. It just makes me wonder if she instead of McCoy become part of the team with Spock and Kirk?
Zoe Saldana has a huge following outside of Trek. It's just smart marketing/script writing to give her a bigger role than McCoy.

Re: And Another New Poster!

^ I was thinking that her inclusion in the big three was organic. She seems to have better chemistry with Kirk and Spock than Karl Urban's McCoy does. Or maybe the story we got in the first movie just made it appear that way. Whatever the case is, she works and didn't need to be forced in.

Plus, with Uhura we now have all three shirt colors represented.

I dunno. I have a co-worker who isn't a Trek fan but will go see the film just to watch Zoe on the big screen and hopefully show some skin.
