Wasn't talking about the trailer, Miguel...

Since 7 of 9 was made a part of the Voyager crew to help save flagging ratings, through Vulcan hottie T'Pol, T&A went from being a part of the Trek scenery to a crutch it stood on.

Why show Uhura taking her top off in the trailer other than to lure in the horny young boys who might otherwise not bother with Star Trek?

Oh how very trailerish of it...

Hell, I've scene pleanty of TOS trailers that use the "sex sells" method. I'm not even talking about the remastered trailers (which are bad enough).

This is what trailers do. Lure.

I mean we're back to this argument again, and no one, not no how, has ever given me a direct answer here: what trailer, especially Star Trek trailer, does not \/\/hore out the movie's/episode's action, sex, suspense, and other extreme moments? Seriously, answer me that.

I think they have that one thing in the bar, but that just forms a different bond between them, like how Ironic that we met in this bar I was a drunk fool and now I command this starship kinda way. I think a commradery forms between them, not romance.

If I'd seen Uhura getting together with anyone, I would have thought Spock or Scotty, since those are the guys I've seen her flirt with.

A Kirk/Uhura romance could be interesting, I'm not necessarily upset about it, but I was just curious what everyone else thought about it.

I would say maybe Pavel as well. Though i am not sure
