If there are standard issue robots in the Abrams Universe, he'd have correct one of the great failings of the future portray in Trek: The lack of robotics.
Agreed. Considering what we're learning about robotics now, I can only imagine what 200+ more years of research and development would bring.

I'd say Science officer 0718 is another good step in that direction.
Yes! I love that guy, mainly after reading several interviews with him. When I watched the movie the other day, I made a point to look at him in any scene he was present. What a neat concept, and I'm glad J.J. went with it.

That's one of the things I like about the new movies: New stuff. We've got a brave new world to try to explain.

The Trek universe tended have computers but not robots. Maybe the unions had them banned?

It makes me want to go back again and again, just to soak up all of the new environments, new technology. I want to see more of this future J.J. has presented me, and I think a lot of people feel the same.

If they did have Kirk suit up, they'd have to find another way to severely injure him. Any ideas? Maybe he forgets to zip up the back? :P

Physically. When he realigned the core the blast sent him flying pretty far/hard. Could broke his back or something.

See? Exactly! Nothing convoluted or imagination-stretching there, and you accomplish the same end from a story perspective. He could even still crawl his way out and have the scene with Spock.

I always wondered why Spock and not someone in a full radiation suit had to fix the warp core (or whatever was in that pipe) in Wrath of Khan.
Well, half the engineering staff were being treated for radiation sickness when Spock showed up.

Re: No Radiation Suits In The 23rd Century?

This version of ST doesn't need stuff like radiation suits, they conjure up ridiculous ways to being characters back. Like genetic super blood. Maybe Paramount should ripoff the nanobot healing ability of the 2008 KITT so that whenever the Imposterprise gets pounded(in every single reboot movie) it can miraculously heal itself.

Yeah, for real. What's next a magical planet where the character gets revived and aged at an accelerated rate till he looks like the actor. Or some machine that gives a character the ability to put someone's brain back into their head. Or a planet where the food makes someone live thousands of years. Oh I know, curing an aging disease they'd never seen before in the matter of minutes. I mean, that'd just be silly.

Good thing Trek never did anything silly like that.

Seriously! What moron makes a movie about a genetically enhanced super human? That kind of shit wouldn't fly in Star Trek. Star Wars, maybe, but not Star Trek.

The genetic superhuman thing wasn't the stupid part, the ridiculous super blood regeneration was.

Maybe we should tell all the real scientists working on ways to engineer the human body to be able to repair itself better to go ahead and quit. Some guy on a Star Trek message board thinks it's ridiculous in a movie with alien/human hybrids, FTL communication and a human race that abandoned war, aggression and greed the moment aliens that looked like Moe Howard with pointy ears showed up.


The point I'm making is that none of it is real, relax. It's a movie, not a religion.
