New Superversive SF Post: Fixing the Abrams Star Trek Films, Part 1

In which I attempt to solve the more obvious writing issues of the new Abrams Star Trek films.

Part 1 is about the first film. Part 2 will be about “Into Darkness”. Read it, love it, comment where you want to. You get the idea.

  1. Craig N. says:

    What would you do with Uhura? Once you’ve thrown out the movie version — which I get — what’s the replacement?

    • The Uhura from the original show. She would become more of a minor character, but a more pleasant one. Also, Uhura would look more black. As Ray Blank pointed out, Zoe Seldana is slim, straight haired, and coffee colored whereas the original Uhura was dark, with big hair, big ass, and big tits.

      I’m not the sort of guy who would particularly care, but this is “Star Trek”, where that sort of thing has always been important.

      • Craig says:

        Did she have enough of a personality in TOS for that?
        Almost the only flash of characterization I can remember for Uhura is her “This is adventure!” line in the Wrath of Khan movie — which actually wouldn’t be a bad spark to use, paralleling Sulu’s fencing.

      • That could work well. Make Uhura adventurous and optimistic, and minimize her role.
