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

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.

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

So, no.

Ideally, there'd be a little more balance in how the characters were used. Chapel could be a supporting character in a McCoy subplot.

I thought she would be in the first movie, maybe called by Bones in a scene.

She was. They could have pointed her out a bit more.

She was in it? Wow. I missed that. I remember hearing her name, and my Chapel loving fanboy heart skipped a beat just to hear her name, but somehow I completely missed seeing her.
I think the movies could do with another female supporting character. I didn't care that much for the nu Carol Marcus. She had a good scene or two. I loved the scene where she freaked out at being transported off the bridge of the Enterprise against her will.

Never a fan of Chapel (or Rand). So I can't say I'd miss her.

If I have to choose, I'd rather Carol Marcus come back for the next film.

That said, the more the merrier. Chapel (bring), Rand (it), Kyle (on), Leslie (all), Arex (the), M'Ress (way).

Big Boo, has the incredibly gorgeous medical person you've blessed us with a picture of there been confirmed as having been Chapel? She's the one Kirk briefly flirted with in STXI, when he first went to sickbay, I think. He said, "Hi" to her in the I-think-you're-beautiful voice, but by then he was also getting pretty high on drugs.

I believe it's the same woman that Bones called for when Kirk's hands were swelled, that was just a better shot of her. He calls her Chapel.

Chapel can be Kirk's baby momma instead of Marcus.

They had an affair. He didn't remember her name. She's going to come and drop the baby in his lap.

No, never thus identified. While it's been speculated by someone at deviantART that she might be Chapel, she's identified at Memory Alpha only as one of several unnamed medical staff, and the actress' IMDb entry has her as "Enterprise nurse".

I will only accept M'Ress if she is totally FURRED!!

Or, if not, there must be a waxing convo.

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

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.
