    I disagree with you on Uhura, Sulu, Scotty and Chekov. Uhura is a lot more fleshed out than she ever was in TOS and so what if there is romance between her and Spock? I enjoyed Scotty’s bigger role in this film and I thought Chekov was awesome, i just wish we would have seen more of him. Sulu was just okay, he didn’t add anything to the movie for me.

    Hey Chrysalis, I was comparing the evolution of the characters to the last film, not the show. I just thought this Uhura walked around ticked off most of the time.

    Thanks for the input 🙂
