    No, it was the engine room, its during the tour they give the media at the beginning of the mini series. Maybe it was used later on as well.

    ^seconded. I got back from watching the movie a fourth time and dammit now I can't sleep! I've got to get to work tomorrow by nine am.

    I'll catch you all later...

    PS. And yes every word that came out of Karl Urban's mouth was G. O. L. D.
    PPS. My friend's 19-yr old nephew was with us (a Transformers, SW, and FF6 fan)... the word out of HIS mouth after the movie when asked how it was: "AWESOME!!" That made me happy :D

    It's the exact same brewery. It also doubles as the factory where Willie saves a human from an industrial accident.

    So it's a step BACKWARD to show an Indian or Middle Eastern looking guy acting like a crazy terrorist? Crashing a giant starship into a city? That's progress, is it?

    ^The whole thing is all about the casting of non-white actors in major parts in movies from the United States (and the lack thereof).

    I think it might be a bit of a sore spot for folks in the Middle East and of Middle Eastern descent for a terrorist (Khan) to be played by someone from that area. Plus, you just fire up folks who think that all folks from that area of the world are terrorists.

    I don't think they made the wrong call here. In this particular instance.

    The next big screen Andorian can only be played by an androgynous actor with blue skin. And his own antennae!

    The next straight actor to play a gay character is in for a big shock when it comes to rehearsal time.

    If she wasn't cute I'd have cut off her whine less than a minute in.

    Does that make me shallow? :guffaw:

    Wow, what a ridiculously over-the-top rant. She has the air of someone who gets extremely upset at incredibly minor things because they haven't had a lot of exposure to real adversity yet. I guarantee that if a darker skinned Khan had been portrayed as a terrorist in this film she would be even more offended by the racial implications of that.

    Khan was played by a white guy with dark(er) makeup in TOS, and without it in TWoK. The producers originally considered a darker skinned actor for STiD (Benecio del Toro) before settling on Cumberbatch, so the implication that they're deliberately whitewashing the character seems unfair.

    Saw it again this afternoon. Played better the second time, and I thought it was great the first time. Love the turnaround they do with TWOK. It's a story about friendship, loyalty and sacrifice in reverse. Kirk steps up and retakes the "no-win scenario". And the emotional Spock - I like him! This movie is just so well done!

    I'm afraid cute wasn't enough to overcome the one-two of the accompanying links in SZ's post and the description attached to the video:

    Sorry, that promises way too much angry agenda for me to have the slightest interest in clicking the "Play" button, never mind any of the links.
