    But with an R rating, you are limiting your audience and losing the "family oriented entertainment" quality. Entertainment for the entire family.

    Yes, Carol in her underwear was so horrible. Its not like Star Trek has EVER had scantily clad women (and men) or Kirk being a ladies man before.

    And it's not likely to happen any time soon, so climb back down off the "family entertainment" soapbox, if you would. You've more than made your position clear on that point already.

    especially since they just killed off NuKirk's surrogate father figure Pike and had NuKirk actually die. I mean how much more agnst does the poor guy need.

    I wouldn't mind if they went the romance route, but if they do, I expect it to be subtle and in the background.

    nuTrek is already a love story between Kirk and Spock.

    I do like Malaika's idea of someone (not necessarily Kirk) falling for someone really alien--and I don't mean in the Harry Kim kind of way.

    Yes. Big name films (Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings come to mind) film once for multiple releases, maximizing profit foremost but in doing so give us more content :drool:. This would have been a GREAT way to handle the Khan story arc, but since that's behind us, they could take any concept and flush out two or three films focusing on 1) exposition 2) rising action 3) climax/resolution.

    Agree. She is now "part of the family" and doesn't appear to be left behind to have a kid :)

    And I guess I'm not opposed to it. I didn't have a problem with that "sexist" scene where Kirk "peeked" and caught a glimpse of her in her space underwear either. She wanted him to peek. ;)

    Oh, a note...

    Marcus being "part of the crew" should please all kinds of folks that have always had a problem with Uhura being the only female in the promary crew.

    I would have preferred M'Ress. Not only would she have also added a female crew member to the roster, she'd also be the first full-blooded alien who's part of the Enterprise's crew that has a freaking name. Instead we just get another human crew member to help cement the Klingon's claims that Starfleet is a homo-sapians only club.

    WEll, looking at the last 2 movies, those claims would not be correct.

    Hell, even the Orion Slave Girls are in Star Fleet now.

    Yeah, but she's not part of the "family", is she?

    well, I don't know about the writers but when it comes to what Alice Eve thinks that Carol should do, everything I've read her saying is a variation of this more recent comment:

    the best part is"nobody knows who’s child it is" :lol:

    star trek into soap opera
    :techman:


    -------------------

    tbh, if Kirk had to have a romantic interest I wish they kept Gaila then. She was alien, cute, funny and even if she turned a bit soap opera in the end at least it was coherent with her character. It would have been funny for Kirk to fall for a girl that was a "manizer" :lol:

    I was refering to all the different alien races protrayed as members of Star Fleet.

    Aren't they all one happy family? :)

    Spock really is a ladies man. It's the ears, chicks dig the ears.
