Re: Really weird Continuity error. HUGE SPOILERS!

Perhaps it's the same phenomenon that gave Khan blue eyes and the Klingons bumpy foreheads ... some kind of cosmetic continuity conundrum that's sweeping the Galaxy.

Well, in Khan's case, I approve of every last change...including the fact that he's no longer retarded. But YMMV, of course.

My god.. he IS less retarded. I never thought of that!

At no point does he retardedly sacrifice himself for vengeance..

Now. He needs his Marla, who's up for that? Better chance this time around!

See, I told you! Make him less retarded, and I'll stop complaining. And if they're going to recast Marla, make her less retarded, too!

Less of a groupie, more of a cohort.

We're a good creative team!

A brick would be sharper than old Marla.

Re: Really weird Continuity error. HUGE SPOILERS!

I wonder if Kirk had sex with her, since she's such a worshipper of heroes... but I think he was too much the modern man for her taste. Irony.

Re: Really weird Continuity error. HUGE SPOILERS!

Given how Spock Prime's ears changed shape between each and every film from 1979 until 1991 and then looked different again in "Unification(TNG)" I'd say his hair color in the new film is a pretty minor nit.

Spock dyed his hair or something. He is, after all, 158 or 159 years old by this point, and half-human to boot. It's a wonder he doesn't look a lot older and worse.

Should be an easy task, then.

btw NuSpock's hair is quite.. plasticy looking at times. Is it all real?

Re: Really weird Continuity error. HUGE SPOILERS!

Bret Michaels would have a harder time getting a 40-something groupie to sleep with him than Khan had getting Marla to fall for his crap. She was remarkably stupid for a trained Starfleet officer and historian serving on the flagship of the Federation.

Dude, he was an actual historical person. That was all she needed.

Would you sleep with Lincoln? I bet you would, even if wanted you to go the theatre with him after the rumpy pumpy.

Re: Really weird Continuity error. HUGE SPOILERS!

Only if I got to hit on Major Rathbone's date to the play.

Abe pointing out people in the audience he didn't like and constantly sending handheld Morse messages during the performance would have been SO not cool.
