    I have a bad feeling about the pop references in this thread.

    I hate sand. It's coarse, irritating, and gets everywhere.

    Which "no"? The ROTS "no", or the ROTJ SE 2.0 "no"?

    Okay wow..

    But who thinks the character is called John Harrison through the whole movie right up to the end when there is a BIG REVEAL as to either who he really is or what name he will be taking on from that point on? You know, "I am no longer Harrison.. that man is dead. You may call me.. <awesome TOS canon reveal>"

    Also I can't get the sci fi writer M. John Harrison out of my head now.

    It's obvious that Roberto Orci did a classic 'switcheroo' play when he told us that Cumberbatch's character was someone from TOS lore and Alice Eve's character was new to canon.

    ^ He didn't mix them up; he knowingly and deliberately pulled a switcheroo on us, and later admitted that one of the things he'd said vis a vis characters was a lie. Until yesterday, we didn't know which statement he lied about, but now we do. He was lying when he said that Cumberbatch's character was from TOS lore. That statement is true of Alice Eve's character - Carol Marcus - instead.

    Hmmm...I See it differently?

    Wasn't it TOS Canon (Season 1?)?

    Harrison is TOS Canon S1 (and S2), he just was a No name extra 99.9% of the time (And got shoved from Department to Department, LOL).

    Carol Marcus is not TOS Canon, she's TOS Movie Canon

    ^ Orci specifically said that Alice Eve's character was "new to canon" and that Cumberbatch's character was someone from TOS lore. Since Carol Marcus is not new to canon in any way and Orci said that he was only lying about one of the two things he said vis a vis characters, he was therefore pulling a switcheroo on us, and lied about which of the two characters was actually from canon and which one was not.

    I really don't think this is obscure dude named Harrison from TOS. I think it's a brand new character unless that turns out to be his pseudonym and we still have a big reveal before us.

    It could actually be Harrison from TOS but he is possessed by an evil alien.

    @teacake: The name isn't going to be a pseudonym; we're dealing with JJ Abrams here, not Christopher Nolan.

    Orci pulled a switcheroo on us when he said that Cumberbatch's character - John Harrison - was from TOS lore and Alice Eve's character - Carol Marcus - was new to canon, which, based on what we know, is obviously not the case.
