Even in film -- maybe especially in film -- what's implied is often more powerful than what's directly seen. Consider the shower scene from the original version of Psycho.

Which is precisely why it should or should not be included - whether or not it moves the plot or characters forward

Except, according to early descriptions so far, this silhouette shot has nothing to do with *sex*, but rather undressing. And I'm guessing the partial nudity is shown in silhouette because they're not going to show nudity. If this shot implies that Uhura is changing out of her uniform, it won't exactly be the most shocking moment in TREK.

si senor.
The trek movies have a tendency to add scenes that have nothing to do with the story.

Of course, we'll have to see it, but I bet it's no more "sexy" than the various "changing of clothes" scenes we've had in other Science Fiction. Sure, Sigourney Weaver looked hot, but was that a sex scene in Alien? No. Sure, boobies showed in RoboCop, but was it sex? No.

Star Trek should be intelligent adult fare.
Hey! You are talking to a child here! (Mature, but still!*)
Why can it not be intelligent AND suitable for children?

By "kids" I meant little kids.

Annoying ones.

"This movie is so boring, mummy. Where's the sex and fighting? All this so called "plot" is boring me"

-The Average American 10-16 year old.

really, High School Musical is the most popular film series for this age group. Great films with little to no action, sex, or etc in them, but with a great plot, characters, and development get ignored. Think about it, Across the Universe, one of the most amazing movies I've ever seen, bombed at the box office. While High School Musical 3, a total heap of balogna, was #1 for days.

Who prefers HSM over ATU?
Not my friends and I, but obviously the youth of America. :P

Just venting, i kind of had a suckish day.
