What's the point? They already don't have enough screen time for the minor characters they do have.

So, no.

Yes sure. why not. The same goes for Rand but the thing is that the films already suffers from too much characters with less time to give all of them some type of development especially when Kirk and Spock are still the two main leading characters and much focus is put on their friendship.


We only have like 2 hours to focus on 11-13 characters not to mention the fact that Abram's films are so fast paced and action packed. There is just not enough time to deal with all the characters in a 2 hours film or have them interact with each other for a long time which is what Trek has always been about.

Perhaps this is the main reason why Trek needs to return to TV.
basically.
You see it in the comics. With the addiction of Carol they're basically shoehorning her everywhere as if they feel the need to and sometimes it's rather forced especially when you think that there are other existing secondary characters (Chekov, Sulu.. ) that are completely forgotten.

Perhaps you feel threatened because Carol might steal Uhura's thunder as the queen of the enterprise.

I read the comics and I think it is nice to have carol there. she and Kirk are going to get together at some point. it is way too obvious.

What better way to have them get together than to let her function as his other science officer.


Hey Borgboy how are things going? I hope our different views on slash fan fictions and the concept of what marriage is will not stop us from enjoying and discussing trek together.
I'm fine thanks Cara007. Of course we can talk about other things.
I think there's room for more than one (or even two) female characters in Star Trek.
I'm also perfectly fine with Chapel being around without her being a love interest for Spock.
It occurs to me that there is something interesting about why Chapel chose to focus on Spock. Maybe she subconscously liked that he was unavailable. She did lose her fiancee in one of (or was it the) first episode(s) we see her. Perhaps that was a coping mechanism, to fixate on an unavailable man when she wasn't really ready to be with another man.
I'm wanting her with McCoy now anyways.
None of this for me has anything to do with competing with Uhura and Carol, just as I never thought having Sulu around was taking anything away from Spock.

I'd like to see more of the secondary characters appear in the new movies. Especially Christine Chapel, I've always been very fond of her. I think that Chapel should've been Spock's love interest, and Uhura with Kirk. We did get a mention of her in the new movie, even if it was pretty awful to learn that she left the Enterprise after a one night stand with Kirk and he didn't even remember! I know Kirk is promiscuous, but it seems pretty unprofessional that he's so casually sleeping with his crew members.
I'd like for Chapel to appear in a new movie, and maybe she could have a romance with McCoy this time around since Spock is spoken for.
I think Charlize Therzon would be a good casting, she has a similar cool stautesque beauty to Majel.
I wouldn't mind it. They did mention Chapel in the last two films, so why not?

Kirk will get the girl and McCoy will be given a lot of grumbling lines about it.

At the end of the third movie they will have had a falling out and she will take another assignment that moves her far away from the Enterprise and Jim Kirk and as she is stepping on the shuttle to go she will rest her hand briefly on her abdomen and the camera will play on that and everyone will KNOW.

There'll be a lot of lens flares in the delivery room when David comes out...

Re: Would you like for Chapel to appear in a new movie?

I would have preferred it if Chapel had been a biologist drafted into sick bay during the crisis. They would not have needed much to establish the character:

McCoy: You, Chapel, you're a biologist, right?
Chapel: Yes, sir...
McCoy: Then get to Sick Bay; you've just been drafted.

Chapel is always going to be a minor player because as people have pointed out, a movie is only so long. However, they could have used her as part of the tribble research. I was rather upset at the way they dismissed the character so casually, especially since Majel had died between the two movies.

I am hopeful that she will return in the comics in a re-imaged WaLGmo. Maybe she's still looking for Korby. It might be nice if a less diligent captain let the androids off the planet.

Frankly, I'm just hoping the next picture sees a bit part for Janice Lester as commanding the squadron Enterprise is assigned to.

^ Now wait a minute...the Abramsverse may be different, but having Lester NOT be a complete nutbar? That's just about TOO different.

Re: Would you like for Chapel to appear in a new movie?

I definitely wouldn't mind seeing Nurse Chapel - and yes, even Rand, for that matter. NuTREK needs more leggy blondes in its cast. Keep with Gene Roddenberry's proud tradition of showing plenty of smokin' hotties. And if Nursey doesn't have enough to do, that's fine. I won't mind if she just sits by a Lens Flare, scantily clad and mugging for the camera, whilst she bats her baby blues! Remember ... make her smokin' hot or no deal!

In this movie I think Chapel should be a man. Brave new worlds.

At least that's less transparent than blondes in their undies.
