Dr. Carol Marcus

Any speculation on what kind of a role she will play in the film? Since she was a molecular biologist, it will be interesting to see how that fits into the plot, as she's apparently on the Enterprise. Seems like the whole romance angle between her and Kirk will be reminiscent of Dr. Helen Noel. Interesting to note that, since Janet Wallace was originally going to be the Carol Marcus role in the original script for Star Trek II. I'm not sure if they want her to play the Marla McGivers role and have her be a traitor. Your thoughts?

Yes.

You know how he stares at you sometimes at the end of an episode? It's personal.

He could also be Thule.

Re: Dr. Carol Marcus

I always thought Carol was (in the prime timeline) the lab technician whom Gary Mitchell fixed up with Kirk...

No, not the same guy. Compare unknown actor's red-overalls crewman from "Corbomite" to Ron Veto's Harrison (or possibly Thule) in same episode.

That lab tech could be any of several blondes with a science background that Kirk knew.

But given that Kirk "nearly married" the one Gary Mitchell hooked him up with and that he and Carol had a son together, it stands to reason that Carol is the one they were talking about.

And that's the story I stubbornly stick to and refuse to be convinced otherwise about.

Ah, yes. They're close but different. Thanks.

Other than having understanding of and probably the means to neutralize or diminish JH's weapons capability's, she may distract Kirk causing him to make a fatal error where-after he forever swears off women.
