I was skeptical about the meter maid too, but then I saw the trailers, and the traffic in the streets on future-Earth (not to mention Noel Clarke and wife driving to the hospital in the prologue). In the future, there will be meter maids.
If there's no money in the future, how do they fine you? Or do they just send you to a rehabilitation colony?
OK...,
Now I'm imagining a rehabilitation colony planet with robotic parking meters, that follow you around constantly shoving coins/tokens into your slot.

You know those tags on mattresses that aren't supposed to be removed. If you remove them in the 23rd Century, they remove one of your pinky toes.

I'm actually disappointed that Cupcake isn't returning.

Re: 'Cupcake' Has Been Struck From The IMDB Cast For 'Into Darkness'

BTW, it oughta be "struck" not "stricken". "Cupcake was stricken with space herpes" vs. "Cupcake was struck from the duty roster."

He's probably in it, don't trust IMDB. If it were accurate Uwe Boll would have directed movies based on Halo and Metal Gear Solid.

Although both dictionaries I consulted indicate no preference, I completely agree with you on this. Good call.

They're not interchangeable in this context. One is an adjective (stricken) the other is a verb [trans] (struck). Try to swap another adjective and you see it don't work:

Re: 'Cupcake' Has Been Stricken From The IMDB Cast For 'Into Darkness'

Both dictionaries I consulted list both stricken and struck as past participles of strike. See, e.g., http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/strike. Even so, I prefer it as "has been struck" in this context (probably because of the coincidence with the adjective form); however, see usage notes at http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/strike#Usage_notes for contrary usage.
