Twins On Playing Kirk's Caitian Friends

For twins Katie and Kellie Cockrell, taking on the role of the two Caitians came with challenges. The first challenge was getting into bed with actor Chris Pine. “It was really fun but also really intimidating because Chris Pine is obviously not bad looking,” said Kellie. “He’s really handsome and very charismatic, and the whole [...]

Re: Twins On Playing Kirk's Caitian Friends

I'll be the first to admit they ARE cute and I certainly would not kick either out of bed for clawing the sheets, but someone will have to pay me a considerable bribe to have me call those ladies Caitians. I mean, the cat dancer (wonder if the production nicknamed her Omaha?) in Trek V looks far more felinoid than the Cockrell Twins, and I don't consider her a Caitian, either.

Sincerely,

Bill

Since when are they Caitians? They are not humanoids with tails? I haven't seen a good studio still of their faces, but I saw no felinoid features there?

"They made prosthetic ears [and] prosthetic noses; in the movie we have these kind of scale type things. Our characters are cats..."
Okay, if that's the case, I'm thrilled. Can we have some good, clear closeups please?

When asked "Can you confirm that the creatures we see with Kirk during his off-hours on Earth are Caitians?" Lindelof said: "You mean the women with the tails?''

"Yes, this is the species that Lt. M'Ress was, from The Animated Series," said the person interviewing Lindelof.

"Yes, we can confirm this," said Lindelof.

Re: Twins On Playing Kirk's Caitian Friends

I'm guessing you have not seen the film yet, Therin?

Trust me, the twins are effectively "neko-chan", human girls with tails. They don't even have feline type ears; Spock's are more pointed. And while I may have missed it, I personally did not see anything akin to a kitty type nose "pad" or an upper lip cleft. They certainly did NOT have fur.

They may have been listed as Caitians by the production, but they are so far removed from the source design (like that unused "Gorn" mask from the prior movie that looks more like some kind of "orc") that they might as well be another humanoid species.

Sincerely,

Bill

Yeah, I don't buy them as Caitians either.

Hell, the best Caitian we saw in live action was in Trek IV.

WHAT. I didn't even know they were Caitians. They sure as hell don't look like Caitians.

WHERE IS THE FUR?

And don't say, "they waxed".

I've seen the movie three times, the first time being the world premiere. I see flashing tails, slender bodies and glimpses of two girls' faces.

Well, by the interview with the actresses, they claim they do wear appliances on their faces: "They made prosthetic ears [and] prosthetic noses; in the movie we have these kind of scale type things. Our characters are cats..."

Carol Marcus should teach Kirk a lesson or two. It is bad enough that he can't recognize the girl who has helped beat the Kobayashi Maru after sleeping with her, but being one of those humans who wouldn't be involved with a Caitian unless she's waxed? Way to stay classy, Jim. Do you have any idea how painful and unpleasant an experience this is for a Caitian?

More than one way to skin a cat.

Re: Twins On Playing Kirk's Caitian Friends

Why would anyone want a waxed Caitian anyway.. fur is all bristly and soft and nice.

Re: Twins On Playing Kirk's Caitian Friends

They must have been waxed because I couldn't make out any hair/fur anywhere on them except for their tails. Their faces were not feline in the least, no nose pieces at all. They had a row of prosthetic bumps along their ear/chin-lines. Maybe a row down both sides of their necks.

Yeah, the actresses mentioned "kind of scale type things". Maybe nose pieces were tested and not used? Seemed to me these aliens were more like the exotic butterfly catchers on Rigel, glimpsed in ENT's "Broken Bow".

Perhaps only Mommy was a Caitian and Daddy was something else.
