    If they promoted her any more, she'd be the BIG ONE.

    I think we won't be seeing that future. In an interview* months before the movie was released--almost a year, as it turned out--Quinto was quoted as saying something along the lines of "in this story, we see Spock at a time when he is not in control of his balance". That suggests to me that emotionally-compromised Spock will have been a one-movie thing, though there could still be echoes of that figuring in a subsequent story and though we may very likely see him following the advice of Old Spock and allowing things other than logic alone to guide his actions.


    *Edit:

    Here's a link to a TrekMovie item containing excerpts from that interview, as well as a link to the entire MTV interview from which the excerpts were taken.

    I don't think Uhura could fit that prominent role. I've been stating this a lot before, but they should put another female character/crewmember on the Enterprise. Yeah it might disrupt the ensemble, but hey, if they can blow up Vulcan, etc., why not? I'm thinking someone along the line of security chief / weapons officer, with rank of lieutenant commander or above, and wears trousers on duty (NO mini-dress for her. You can keep the minis on Uhura and the background women, fine!). JJ Abrams, how about Anna Torv for this role? Huh? You listening?

    Sorry - they've got Zoe Saldana, and they're going to move her to one side for someone like Torv?

    Ain't happening.

    Saldana right now is a bigger star and ascending more quickly than anyone else in the movie. She's hot in every way that she can be, and if Uhura is a major character in the next movie it'll be because Saldana is Uhura.

    Well Dennis, how about both of them being major characters? Will that satisfy you?

    That's a hypothetical - they're not actually going to do anything like that - and I'll be completely satisfied with Saldana/Uhura as a lead character in the movie.

    Well, I doubt that too, Dennis, but it would be bold if they did.
