Will there be a female First Officer on board the Enterprise?

Re: Bring back Number One!

Hopefully attitudes have changed enough in the last 40 years so that we can actually have BOTH a female First Officer AND an alien AT THE SAME TIME OMG!

Whoa...slow down. I am not sure I am ready for that.

Well, maybe if the alien has normal ears. That would keep me from freaking out too much.

Woah. Slow down. Those two concepts can't exist in the same plot.

At least a passing reference would be a nice homage to Majel, be it Number One, Nurse Chapel or even a sample of the computer voice.

Wasn't Number One a member of Pike's Enterprise, not Kirk's?

Yes. But we'll be seeing Pike's Enterprise anyway. Even if we weren't going to, maybe she stayed into Kirk's command, or maybe there was another female XO after her.

Well, we probably will see a time period that includes Pike as Captain of the
Enterprise (we know Pike IS in this film)...

...However, it may be several years after The Cage, and his Number One from that time may have moved on -- or not.

EDIT: You beat me to it, Eric.

Number One is in the movie. And thanks to a bigger budget they have also added Number Two.

"Number One" didn't go because NBC wasn't forward-thinking enough - that was GR's story. No one liked the character, because no one liked the actress.

Majel Barrett is terrible as Number 1 & Nurse Chapel but for the most part I really enjoyed her as Lwaxana Troi.

She plays comedy pretty well and only really falls apart when she gets the blubby stuff (Half a Life & Dark Page).

Good old scatological humor.

I think it's safe to say we won't see:
-- Number One
-- Dr. Boyce
-- Dr. Piper
-- Kelso
-- Tyler
-- Colt
-- Finnegan
-- Mitchell
-- Gill
-- any of Kirk's named love interests

But, we are getting Orion slave girls and tribbles. And, that's a damn good trade off, in my opinion.

EDITED TO ADD: We'll not see Captain April, either. Though perhaps it would be cool if we did, and Number One was his first officer. Would that be a retconn, violation of canon, or what?
