    I didn't see anyone addressing this, so thought I'd ask:

    How did Uhura and Sulu get off their shuttle and what happened to it?

    From what I gather after one viewing; they did not beam off it, they wore wetsuits as well (Sulu's line "ready to swim" from the trailers), so they probably flew it out of the volcanic ash cloud into the ocean, close to the E, abandoned the shuttle and swam to the Enterprise like Kirk and McCoy did later? If so, add even more cultural contamination once they find the wreckage someday...

    It was my understanding this is why the Enterprise was underwater.

    I'm thinking that the real Trekkies did need a good smack in the face now.

    Given the history between Britain and India, and considering the facts that even today there are Oxford and Cambridge educated Indians who have a completely posh English accent, and that Sikhism is a religion that anyone (even pale white people) can be and have been baptized into -- all males who are Sikhs are all named Singh, while females are all named Kaur -- and not an ethnicity, plus the fact that even in TOS, McCoy was able to alter Kirk to look like a Romulan (an alien species), I have no problems imagining that Section 31 altered Khan's appearance when they woke him up, or handwave that he could have always been meant to look like John Harrison.

    YMMV

    That's such a great line, I think. I'm glad it made it into the movie. Several of the lines from the trailers were absent or different.

    Let's hear it for "gratuitous."

    Lindelof called the Carol Marcus underwear scene 'gratuitous'. It's linked in a post of mine above. :techman:

    I don't even consider it that gratuitous. Considering some of the costumes William Ware Theiss had on his lovely ladies in TOS, regular underwear isn't exactly pushing the edge.

    Not that I'm complaining, mind you. :D
