Re: Why did Carol need to change?

If JJ knows what's good for the old guard he'll rip Pine's shirt during a battle and let us see the pecs. Or the stomach, I personally and vastly prefer the stomach.

The same thing needs to happen to Karl Urban, and then he falls over on top of Jim as they slide down a hill covered in coconut oil. I think this would make a great action sequence.

And coconut oil is soooo shiny, it's perfect for lens flare.

Re: Why did Carol need to change?

But there's those stupid black shirts they wear underneath their uniform shirts.

Still maybe they're only fake like Carol's jumpsuit.

At least in TOS, Kirk always took his top off.
Both movies have Kirk barechested and (presumably) in underwear:

It's not the same without the Amok Time fight music.

I think we got 1/2 second there and no embarressing underwear.

Count me in.

I think we can confidentally count of J.Allen being 'in'.

I'm not against the 'Amok Time' music being included.

Edit: Lets tweet this idea to Orci. I'm sure he's receptive to fan ideas.

Re: Why did Carol need to change?

This will probably ruin the entire thread but...

In that case, they better add in some homoeroticism between the female characters as well. To keep things even.

(In actuality, I'd be upset if Trek did something like this anyway. It's sci-fi, not softcore porn damnit!)

I think there were probably days that Roddenberry and William Ware Theiss would disagree with you.

Need more female characters to carry this off!

And need Gaila. BRING HER BACK! Sparks fly off her, she can homoerotic over anyone.

Re: Why did Carol need to change?

Orci also knows that some fans had issues with Carol Marcus, played by Alice Eve, disrobing for what appeared to be practically no reason at all. Lindelof has taken the blame for that scene, but Orci says the true fault of that scene actually lies with someone completely different: J.J. Abrams.

"Originally, they were going to open the torpedo in orbit, in space, so originally we had Kirk chasing her into a room where she was changing into a space suit," Orci said. "So it seemed more purposeful when we originally conceived it."

However, because of production costs, they decided to open the torpedo on land instead. And while Marcus does wear a different outfit, Orci does understand fans who say she didn't need to really change -- and certainly didn't need to do it in front of Kirk.

"I can't claim to be an expert on feminism, but I can point out that you can see Kirk half-naked as well, in both movies," Orci said of Chris Pine. "He's in his underwear, so is Uhura.

"Did the movie need that scene? No. Was Alice Even a good sport? Awesome."
