[spoiler] & Bones McCoy or James Kirk Relationship Thread

I know that Carol Marcus is supposed to be linked with Kirk, and I do think they work as a couple, but I liked her interactions with McCoy as well.

So, I'm wondering. Does anyone have a preference? I'm sure some people would rather she stay single for development purposes, but I think it would be nice to see her with someone as well.

So, which would you prefer and why?

Carol & Kirk


Carol & McCoy

See? Now, this one I like -- Kirk/Marcus in this movie.

Let's just hope they don't f**k it up in the next one.

Re: [spoiler] & Bones McCoy or James Kirk Relationship Thread

I'm just hoping they fix Spock/Uhura, but I also hope if they put Carol with Kirk that they do it well. I do wonder how that works with him being captain, but I think it can work well so long as they can keep work separate and there are rules. I still kind of like Carol/Bones better, though.

Re: [spoiler] & Bones McCoy or James Kirk Relationship Thread

So now you've gone and put an interesting couple possibility in my head!

I quite liked Marcus/Kirk in the movie. It seems obvious that the relationship will continue along the lines of the prime universe (if the homage scene is anything to go by), but I also like your Marcus/McCoy suggestion as well. I liked their back and forth while "defusing" the weapon.

So, do I vote for what I believe will happen (which I do like) or do I vote for what looks like a possibly more challenging (and fun?) pair?

Decisions, decisions...

Oh, indranee where will you be posting the review you mentioned in the Spock/Uhura thread (or have you posted it and I missed it?)

Shanndee haven't posted it yet. I'm going to watch it, yes, a fourth time this coming weekend ... I'll post after that. ALL my non-Trekkie friends seem to now watch this movie with me. They weren't like this in 2009. Most of them waited for the dvd/cable etc. I wonder what's going on...

*cough*WoM*cough*

As for Spock/Uhura, see, I loved the *idea* of it but I just can't see it progressing well because of the way these dudes are writing it. Trek never did do romance well save for a precious few instances. I just don't think Orci/Kurtzman can write Uhura well. The problem is -- to me -- how she's being made to play "Uhura in love". Ugh. I'll leave it there for now. I'll put the rest of my thoughts in the review.

It's the exact opposite for me, but none of my friends in real life are trekkies. Still, I could get people to watch the last movie, but no one wants to watch this one. Everyone is interested in something else, especially Superman. I guess it doesn't help that I didn't like it and said it's okay if all you want to see is a bunch of action sequences. Seems like the people that fall into that group went to see F&F6 or will. Still, it's good that STID is performing.

And this is part of my problem. Their *conflict* didn't make any sense. What was beautiful about it the last time was that they just wrote a normal, healthy, couple dealing with the problems that life was throwing at them, and they did it with a quiet grace. This movie... Yeah, we may need to get back over to the S/U thread to discuss this a bit. I don't want to derail this one.

Re: [spoiler] & Bones McCoy or James Kirk Relationship Thread

I don't like the idea of Carol/Kirk. To be honest I didn't like the whole Carol/Kirk/David thing at all so I guess I could never vote for them in this verse either. I suppose I wouldn't mind as much if there is no child involved this time. Seems to me this Nu Kirk has strong feelings about fathers not being there and would not agree to stay out of child's life. Also I don't think given the Kelvin that he would be inclined to raise a child on a star ship. If they end up together I hope that this verse's Carol/Kirk act more adult like when making their decisions.

It would be interesting if Carol swung towards Bones. If only because the poor grumpy doctor just isn't getting any love.

True. I could see Kirk in this timeline being there for David, considering Kirk grew up without his father. I suppose it depends on how attached this Kirk is to the captains chair, seems that Kirk-prime couldn't give up his life in Starfleet, even for his kid.
