list of female reboot characters who aren’t A) mother of a main character or B) shown in their underwear at least once:
- ………….yeah I got nothin’
ANd a reminder that two of the four women in the Reboot aren’t even named within the script. So for those people who are casual fans have no idea that Winona is Winona or Amanda is Amanda.
Instead they are only known by their relationship to their sons and husbands.
Winona is George Kirk’s Sweetheart and Jim Kirk’s Mother
Amanda is Spock’s Mother, and his Father’s Whore.
Ain’t that swell?
#HOLY SHIT #that last comment #I have seen the movie multiple times and I didn’t even #I didn’t even notice that #I HAD TO GO THE TRANSCRIPT AND CTRL+F TO CHECK BECAUSE I ALMOST DIDN’T BELIEVE IT #they didn’t give AMANDA HER NAME #or Winona but they actually TOOK AMANDA’S NAME AWAY #and then KILLED HER #FUCK #FUCK THE WORLD #and they gave Uhura a first name but it was passed between male characters like an object #accidentally dropped by one and greedily picked up by the other #never given freely #EXCUSE ME I NEED TO GO PUNCH SOMETHING
I feel like there’s some really rageworthy meta potential here about how men’s names are important, but women’s names don’t matter at all (unless, as perceptively pointed out above, that name can be used by male characters to signify possession/etc).
#Think about this: we learn both Jim’s grandfathers’ names in that opening scene#neither of whom are present or ever in the movie at all#but not Jim’s mother’s name#even though she’s right there#in the scene#givin’ birth to the main character#And they couldn’t have had George tag on a ”Winona!” to any part of his dialogue?#like obviously the granfathers’ names were relevant for good reason - of course they were#but they could just have easily have mentioned Winona’s name too y’know?

“Stand by, Captain — it says we need to update the Java plugin so we can run GoToMeeting.”
“Why didn’t they just use WebEx?”
“The Romulans must not have a license for it.”
“But it’s free. Isn’t it?”
“If they’d Skyped in, we could’ve just used the ship’s webcam.”
“Captain, the warbird doesn’t show up on my list of Facetime contacts.”
“I think we need to sync our address book.”
“We should’ve just used Tinychat.”
“Why don’t we start a Google Hangout?”
“Shut up, Wesley.”
getting into the star trek fandom was like falling into a black hole, the gravitational pull was too great to resist and the moment you cross the event horizon time freezes and you can see the past, present, and future and it’s star trek
I wanted to gif their awesome hi-five-handshake thing;
and it sort of went from epic bromance to world’s most romantic hand grab.
