wow! the JJ verse is still alive and kicking
It would be interesting if Alice Eve has the last depiction of a Kelvin verse character.
Not that commercials count of course. I wonder if they got that ID uniform out of storage, or if they made a new one.
Link seems broken.
You're just trying to tease me aren't you ?
"turn around" -Carol Marcus
It works okay for me.
It's interesting that they got Alice Eve to appear in a brief online commercial. Too bad they couldn't bring her back for ST:B.
Looks a bit darker than the STID uniform to me.
I never liked the reasoning that it would not have been fair to bring her on for a small part on the movie instead of a larger role, when its clear she's willing to do a small web commercial for the same role.
It's working now. Don't know what was wrong before.
Not enough money to put rank insignia on it?
Having Carol on Yorktown in ST:B would have done it for me. No need to give her a lot to do if the actor is willing, but at least keep her in play. Maybe she and Kirk have something going, maybe they don't. Heck, she could have been one of the reasons why he wanted to be stationed there.
she's not wearing the right boots, i'm wondering if this is an ANOVOS uniform.
still good to see her again/depressing as hell if this is the last time we see KT character.
Pretty sure read somewhere she was going to be in Orci's ST3 and there was the photoshop/artwork of her in a Beyond type uniform in the Beyond section of the Art of the Kelvin trilogy book
according to justin lin, early versions of his film had carol in it too. but then she was reduced to a reference in pegg's script (she's off starting the genesis project), then there's no mention at all.
It is for the game. Both her and Khan weren't in the game at first but they recently added them. I think they probably had to pay for the rights to use the characters. I wonder if there would be commercials with the others too.
Alice seemed to have so much hope for her role in trek (it's the only big franchise she would be part of) and I have no doubt she'd love to be in more movies. However, with a main cast so big already one should set their expectations low. Pegg&Co added Jaylah and the villains and when there is hardly screentime for the main characters, adding too many faces is counterproductive and the risk is you make them redundant cameos that take screentime from the regulars but don't have a significant role.
The ST09/ID women's uniforms never had rank insignia. They fixed it for Beyond by giving the women long sleeves, so they had cuffs to put the rank braids on. Odd that no one ever suggested TMP-style epaulettes.
Some of the long sleeve variants in 09 had rank insignia.
Spoiler: Pictures inside for the curious
Yeah, it's a shame that beyond's team got all the credit for adding rank to the uniforms (Karl Urban too pushed that narrative that beyond finally fixed that) but in reality, they just make Uhura wear a long sleeves one that had rank stripes even in Kaplan version. Kaplan had designed all the uniforms to show rank, it's just that he thought Uhura's uniform would be cuter with short sleeves but they forgot to add rank to that version too and when they realized, he said it looked bad and amateur when they tried to add the stripes on them after the fact. It was a mistake.
I bet at some point they had thought about a short sleeves variant for the guys too.
Yeah, it was a rather simple fix, one that I have seen fan creations accomplish:
Eve's Carol Marcus was one of the many wonderful things about Star Trek into Darkness, and the inexplicable failure to bring her back was one of the multiple disappointments of Star Trek Beyond.
