Re: Romance

Having it there for the sake of having it there is annoying (a la TV Trek romances-of-the-week), but if it complements the story, I like it. I thought Spock/Uhura and Sarek/Amanda were well done in Trek XI. I liked Ilia/Decker/VGER (weird as that looks, now that I wrote it down ) in TMP. Aside from that .... meh.

I wouldn't mind a little Kirk/Marcus romance in XII, as long as she dies at the end of the movie

You said Marcus and I thought you meant David at first.

If you do, I don't want credit for the idea.

Indeed.

Yes, a little romance now and then is a healthy thing.

Oh please. Kirk/David has already been done. I don't even have to check to tell you that. Everyone knows that slashers are crazy people.

Re: Romance

Back on topic: one of the disappointing parts of ST09 is the Spock/Uhura make-out sessions. Romance and gratuitous sex/physical gratification are not the same thing. It was very out of character for Spock. Kirk in bed with an Orion chick was the same thing. I voted for the third option.

What Spock/Uhura make-out sessions? Uhura comforting Spock in the turbolift was not making out...Spock kissing his girlfriend ("In the event that I am unsuccessful, please tell Lieutenant Uhura...) before going on what is essentially a suicide mission (4.3% chance of success) is not a make-out session... (and notice that when he beamed back, he grabbed her hands before they exited the transporter room -- she's important to him).

And out of character? Really? We've never seen Spock at this age; a Spock who didn't have an 11 year mission aboard the Enterprise with Pike and Number One straight out of the Academy, a Spock who was teaching at the Academy years early and who met Nyota Uhura 10 years before he did in TOS; he's not quite the same character. . . now, you may not like it, but the whole point of the movie is that some things will be the same (Kirk being a horndog/falling in love/using women to get what he wants) and somethings will be different in the alternate reality. . .

As for romance. . . people keep saying they want Star Trek to comment on the human condition, well isn't sex and romance a major part of that?

Re: Romance

All I ask is that there is no love triangle between Spock, Kirk and Uhura.

Why would there be? Uhura showed absolutely no romantic interest in Kirk at all, she didn't send him any mixed messages. . . she didn't like him,and let him know it. . . and as much as some fangirls want it, I doubt the writers are going to go down the Kirk/Spock road. . . so, what possible triangles are you seeing?
