Re: Romance between Kirk and Carol?

This is my Rom-com idea
Kirk and Marcus are Friends With Benefits. She gets pregnant but she really likes McCoy who won't make the moves on her because he's still too traumatised over his divorce. Meanwhile Spock and Uhura are sad because they are trying for a baby and can't have one.
It all ends up that Kirk goes on a one-way mission and McCoy promises to raise the baby as his own with Marcus.

Or we can go the way of my preferred option that Marcus isn't foolish enough in this timeline to get involved with one James T Kirk.

Re: Romance between Kirk and Carol?

I liked Carol ok in some of her scenes without Kirk, but thought the chemistry with Kirk and Carol was awful. I'd prefer if Carol left the Enterprise before the next movie, with some vague clue to the audience that she could be pregnant, or at least make it clear that she left after a fling with Kirk, just like Chapel.
I'd prefer the next movie have Chapel and Rand in the crew, with Chapel as a love interest for McCoy and Rand for Kirk.

Re: Romance between Kirk and Carol?

I agree with you whole heartedly but I do believe I read that Alice Eve was signed on for the next movie. When asked about this she joked about having a romance and a baby so maybe (I know, but a girl can dream) since they usually are so secretive about story lines this time around they will have a different out come. But something tells me with they way this reboot is going there will be a romance and a child. Though maybe we will get lucky. Seems that even with Spock and Uhura that not much romance is shown nor much relationship material with regards to issues except in a humorous manner. In other words I have no idea.

Well it's a movie, if it was a series we would see a lot more of S/U and K/Everyone. Issues included.

Re: Romance between Kirk and Carol?

Carol didn't seem to like Kirk much at all in STID so I would assume that a romance is not likely. Although anything is possible.

The idea of two people who "hate" each other at first, but then fall in love is a pretty common one in fiction.

They don't hate each other though. He thinks she's hot, and she thinks she better establish herself around this man, probably because he makes just a little bit weak and that is scary.

Re: Romance between Kirk and Carol?

There is one other possibility that no one seems willing to concede to:

That Carol Marcus may well conceive Jim Kirk's child, not only without his concent, but without so much as his participation. She could impregnate herself with some of his DNA. I know that she's not a biologist or physician, but she is a scientist, nonetheless. As far as what her motivations for doing this might be, they could well come from a failed romance with Kirk and wanting some part of him with her ... forever and always. It might have nothing more to do with the fact than that she's, quite simply, always wanted a child - but not necessarily a husband. Carol's already noticed Kirk's attributes, which she finds terribly attractive. Who else to procreate with but the crème de la crème of STARFLEET?

Re: Romance between Kirk and Carol?

Well, she did drop her drawers in front of James T. Kirk for absolutely no reason and then told him to turn around ... with every hope and expectation that he'd peak. And what was the status of their relationship, then? I've never had a chick just drop her drawers in front of me, without us getting it on. I mean ... Carol's not all there, is she? Perhaps, Admiral Marcus never bought her that pony she wanted as a child and now she's acting out ... impregnating herself, out of wedlock, with the seed of a near-total stranger.
