    I actually thought Abrams did a good job of incorporating the elderly Leonard Nimoy in the 2009 Star Trek reboot. So, hopefully he will have the same amount of restraint for Harrison Ford and allow Han Solo to keep his dignity intact.

    At least with SW we're safe from something that dumb just because time travel is not in that universe.

    Nimoy and Spock didn't keep their dignity intact, why should Ford / Solo? The writing really undermined Nimoy's appearance in New Coke Trek, he did alright with the material for a retired elderly actor, but the material let him down I think.

    I still haven't watched that because of the knowledge that Spock bangs Uhura. To me, that's like changing the Bible so that Jesus is a stripper.
    Tommy, close your eyes.

    Yeah, and it's pretty much just as classy as it sounds, too.

    Well, they didn't actually have sex, they just made out in a turbolift. Of course, it was obviously meant to suggest a sexual relationship. I did think there were one too many jokes about Uhura's "talented mouth" in the film, however. Those portions of the script felt like they were written by a horny college freshman.

    They suggested the hell out of that sexual relationship to the point of excess. And the "talented tongue" stuff was just more fuel to the fire that they made a movie which has no interest in women as people. Look at Uhura's outfit, how is it that this movie is made decades after the original show and yet is less modest than those micro-skirt outfits? At least TOS had full-length sleeves, actual shorts, and darkly-tinted tights for the women in those uniforms; the new movie's babydoll sleeves confirmed that women had no real place on the ship, they were now just Hooters waitresses.

    I dunno. I'd like to see time travel just so Han Solo can kick Cade Skywalker's arse.

    I hope all the expanded universe stuff is ignored in the making of the sequel trilogy.

    Instead of time-travel, just use "frozen in carbonite again" and pull a Buck Rogers.
