Re: Uhura replacing McCoy/Bones?

Real Vampires don't eat Qui...er... don't sparkle.

I think it's fine to upgrade Uhura to a starring role, I didn't really notice her pushing McCoy aside getting more screen time than him though.

And why would Uhura want to replace McCoy's Bones, anyways?

It should be done. Star Trek treats women like crap, they should have a character that is front and center, that can do more than open hailing frequencies.

That almost sound dirty the way you say it

I agree, it's good to see a female TOS character with a bit of equality

Re: Uhura replacing McCoy/Bones?

why no one ever say that Scotty has replaced McCoy?
because is it me or he's getting more action? especially in the last movie.

You need a sarcasm smiley on that last comment. It's more accurate to say that a love interest has never been so in our faces in any of the TOS movies but even that isn't quite true - we had Decker and Ilia - but in most of the movies the 'romance' element was very understated - we had implied sexual tension between Spock and Saavik, flirtation between Kirk and Gillian, and Spock's permanent boner whenever Valeris was in the room.
Spock and Saavik - no way
Gillian was just humouring Kirk
Maybe there was something between Spock and Valeris

Certain (unused) scenes were filmed to suggest sexual tension between Saavik and David (the ShoWest presentation trailer; also explored in the novelizations) and Saavik and Kirk (the alternate elevator scene featured in the ABC network US television premiere).

That is interesting, isn't it? It's definitely "food for thought."

He had more screen time and more to do than McCoy for sure, but no one complains...

Re: Uhura replacing McCoy/Bones?

I don't understand:

"Uhura is dating Spock! That's Sexist!"

"Uhura is an angry black bitch for not being a doormat!"

What is this, the 19th century!?

Nope. So let's take that phrase I've set in bold and put it safely away someplace where no one will be tempted to use it again.

Sure.
