    To be fair, the self-righteous Trek Purists are taking their cue from Captain Janeway:

    "There are three things to remember about being a starship captain: keep your shirt tucked in, go down with the ship, and never abandon a member of your crew."
    - Kathryn Janeway to Naomi Wildman, 2375 ("Dark Frontier")

    Obviously nuKirk and Abrams are refusing to comply.

    I could not stand sexist TNG episodes like Deja Q. Getting Q undressed served no plot purpose whatsoever. Let's be honest, the gratuitous nudity was there only to objectify men.

    And when THOR was swingin that hammer shirtless, you squeed with horror having to witness Hemsworth abs and biceps rippling in front of you.

    God Lord and Holy Jeebus y'all. Sex sells. I enjoy the human form when it doesn't look like Ron Jeremy. Love God's creation.

    Alice has great tits. :guffaw:

    Hmmmm, that sounds like a number of TNG episodes...hey, I love TNG but sometimes they did too much navel gazing.

    Bryan Burk agrees. He said while he was in Australia that he thought of Trek as a bunch of people standing around on the bridge and talking, and so went out to make a film that "I would like"/

    Well, the decon chamber bits were not particularly well-received and TOS is quite sexist in many ways in a modern context.

    Things may have happened in Trek before, but that doesn't necessarily make them an example to follow.

    Having said that, if I dislike this film (I very much disliked the last one - and for the record, I have seen every episode of Trek outside of a handful of TOS season 3 and the end of DS9 season 2, which I'm watching now), it won't be because of a few seconds of a woman in her underwear. I could not care less.

    Just so happens Captain Robau had a son who grew up to become another Captain Robau and he looks and is exactly like his Dad.

    Latest trailer:

    [yt]http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=F2V3tm15kZ4[/yt]

    It's missing the Alice Eve tit shot, but otherwise pretty much the same.

    Perhaps Abrams and his fellow producers noted this trend toward sex & women in Star Trek and have continued it? How do you reboot TOS without including the miniskirts and beautiful women? It is so in your face in TOS and these new movies are simply a reboot of TOS not the spinoffs. We have no idea of the context of the scene in the trailer because its a trailer.
