I know, which is what's so out of place to me about it unless it's a shout out to a friend/family member. I would think if it was a reference to the carrier, that'd tack her hull number onto a starship or shuttle not a torpedo.
Not a lot of opportunities for people to spot the number on the hull of a ship or a shuttle. You often don't get close enough to see text on a ship unless it's a battle scene and shuttles are usually in a crowded hangar scene, so it's hard for people to even pick out the text that's on those things.

NOT....
Dollars to donuts it's some kind of proto-conception of a Genesis-like device, like some kind of weapon that reduces all living matter to subatomic particles.
Carol: I used red matter in the Genesis Matrix; it was the only way to solve the problems.

Think is, with Carol being 'fleet and hanging around the torp, I'm thinking this could be something like a early Genesis-type weapon or Starfleet is taking cues from Nero and created some WMDs of their own.

Re: New STID pics

hello..I am a first time poster and so if I make an inadvertent mistake please forgive and please not my error (gentle correction).

Anyways straight to the point. I am hearing that the magazine cover with Bones, Kirk, Spock, and Uhura is not a genuine cover. It was "made up" by someone on the internet.

Can you please set the record straight on this and include any links if possible so I can let my friends know the truth one way or the other.

Thank you

Re: New STID pics

first time here folks. I already made a post but wasn't sure if quick reply is a different option or not.

Can someone please tell me if the current photos depicting Bones on the cover of empire magazine are accurate or is it a photoshop made by someone on the internet? If possible, please include links so that I can pass the info on to my friends.

Thank you

Re: New STID pics

John Harrison is on the official Empire front cover with Kirk, Uhura and Spock. McCoy is on one side of J.J. Abrams in the captain's chair. The cover linked in this thread is a fan made version in response to certain people whining that McCoy had been relegated to second tier status by Uhura's rise. Notice the photoshop line and how McCoy's section doesn't quite match the skyline behind Kirk, Uhura and Spock.

Re: New STID pics

Thank you for the quick reply. I can't say I disagree with the fans wanting Bones to have at least equal status with uhura.

I'm all for expanding the fan base and understand that this isn't "my parents star trek" but I think that with this being an altered time line that pairs spock and uhura then that leaves kirk needing a close companion. You can take the definition of close companion to mean anything you want. I feel that with spock having uhura in his life that the dynamic between he and kirk is very different than in TOS. I think that he needs bones because with the change in dynamic between he and spock that kirk needs someone at his side to confide in and such.

And frankly, I think that bones and even pike have much more of Jim's best interests at heart than spock does.

Again I'm new and am not sure if this was the correct thread to post these thoughts on and for that I apologize. If you would be so kind as to tell me the proper procedure then I will be sure to follow it in the future

I did read something yesterday which seemed to say that the version of the cover with Bones substituted for Harrison was a fan Photoshop, but it sounds now as if that might have been speculation. Let me see if I can dig it up.

[Edit] - I think this is the one I remember seeing:

https://twitter.com/TrekMovie/status/315636946347126784

Could have been speculation, could have been joking around (they'd been riffing on possible alterations to the cover already), or even just an excuse to use the #wrathofthecumberbabes hashtag.

[Edit, again]

Actually, I don't see the McCoy edit cover anywhere there, so... ?

Re: New STID pics

I checked out the links supplied by M'Sharak on their post and it would appear that this is a photoshop version of the empire magazine cover.

Personally, I would like to see them use several different covers for people to collect..but that is just me

thanks for the information...it is much appreciated.

Do you think you could post here to explain how you "marked/square around the post you are replying to?

I see that it makes it easier to understand replies when you see the original post.

The easiest way is to click on the Quote ( ) button at the bottom of the post to which you wish to respond. The board software does the rest and all you have to do is write your reply.

If you look at the structure of Star Trek 2009, that is what happened, though: Bones is Kirk's friend who questions Spock's decisions regarding Kirk, while Uhura is Spock's friend who questions Kirk's decisions. They are basically equals in the role they play. The problem comes from people who willfully misunderstand the structure of the film and want things to stay the same as they were in the 1960s: and thus, we get Star Trek "Fans" who actually say things like this (actual quotes):

"Once again Bones is relegated to N04 behind behind Uhura.
How annoying. This Uhura has nothing to offer over the quite brilliant Karl Urban’s ‘Bone’s yet they keep pushing her up the pecking order. grrrr"


"Where is Bones? Who is that scary woman on behind? Oh, I almost forgot that this ugly creature is “Uhura” now. And she is now substitute for McCoy. I don’t buy this shit."

"Uhura gets the cover and Bones gets pushed to panel two with Scotty. I know why the marketing people do it, I know: she’s female, of race, good looking, played by a well-known actress. Even so, Bones and Scotty are far more important to the franchise (and more well-known publicly) than Uhura. Uhura is traditionally down in second class with Sulu and Chekov."

Re: New STID pics

Been a McCoy fan for thirty-five plus years and love Urban's take on the character. But, if the story makes more sense with Uhura instead of him at the forefront then I'm all for it.
