I think this thread should be renamed Zothura. It seems less awkward.

Re: Zoe- Uhura?

Makes sense. Star Trek XI is about changing things. I'm surprised (Pleasantly) that she's still a she and not a he.

Interesting question. I'd assume not, but I did notice that in a recent video clip, that she did pronounce the name "Uhura" with a decided accent -- pure vowels and slightly trilled "r," very similar to a Spanish accent.

I noticed that too.
Which makes me think she might.

I noticed it too! Is Uhura going to be speaking with an accent in the movie? That's gonna throw me for a loop!!

Hmmmmmmm, if Spock had an accent what would it sound like?

Maybe like the Vulcan High Priestess in "Search for Spock"?
Or T'Pau?

However, I seriously doubt they would mess with Spock's accent.

Which means Star Trek XI is not a Reboot tm. :thumbsup:

Didn't say they couldn't.
I just don't think they will--speaking of the accent, that is.
