Something vaguely Shatneresque about Pine's delivery in this scene.

Giving her the pseudonym "Wallace" is a nice little trivia/continuity nod to TOS as well.

That's cos he is.

So, I guess she's not the lab tech at the academy in this timeline AND is British to boot.

Sigh.

Well, canonically she never was the lab tech at the academy.

I dig the accent but lament the unnecessary layers of clothing.

Re: Clip #4 - Meeting Carol

Okay, so, the obvious - Carol is hiding her family ties to Admiral Marcus. Why? And how and when does Kirk and co. learn otherwise? Is the British accent (I know, I know, it's Alice's real voice) part of the act?

'Wallace' was a nice nod. Though I'd have loved it if she'd used the first name 'Janet' too, I guess (for those of us who already know who Alice is playing) it would have been too much of a tip-off that Carol ain't necessarily one of the good guys in this one. Her mother could have divorced/remarried and Carol took Step-daddy's last name.

I don't think she's necessarily hiding anything.
I think I read somewhere that Wallace is supposed to be her mothers name. Maybe she and daddy are having a few issues and she's not using his name as a result.
Or she doesn't want people to think she's advancing in Starfleet because of her name and favors from the Admiral.

Which, if true, would beautifully set up her conflict with Kirk (who EVERYBODY thinks has cashed in on George Senior's heroic legacy and having Pike for a guardian angel).

Pine really channels some classic Kirk in that scene, loved it.

Re: Clip #4 - Meeting Carol

I'm sure this seems a rather silly post, but I am thinking outloud..

Is it safe to assume that Kirk and Carol Marcus are not romantically involved in this movie as it appears that he is meeting her for the first time?

And yes Spock appears to be incredibly jealous...nice touch that she sits between them. Is this symbolic of her role in the movie? Does she indeed come between Kirk and Spock?

Bones looks a little curious or perhaps put off as well...

Thoughts on this anyone....

Perhaps that's why in TWOK, Mr. Spock and Carol's greeting is a bit cold when she beams aboard the Enterprise.
