AND ANOTHER THING.
I think we should have a new rule: no calling Uhura’s role in STXI “unimportant” or “useless” and saying she’s only there to be Spock’s girlfriend unless you are willing to say the exact same fucking thing about Bones and demand they BOTH be made to walk the plank.
Bones is there purely for Kirk, y’all. Bones’ function in the movie was to get Kirk aboard the Enterprise and be his bestie. The only medicine we see him perform is stabbing Kirk in the neck with hypos. Why is he always on the bridge? What is he doing there besides giving his spaceboyfriend moral support? His post is in the medbay!
Some food for thought.
