Star Trek fans were very intrigued by the announcement of Alive Eve’s role in Star Trek Into Darkness: Carol Marcus, the mother of Captain Kirk’s son, David, in the original series timeline.
However, Chris Pine has come out to set the record straight in an interview alongside Zachary Quinto by saying that, in the new alternate timeline, things are (almost) strictly professional between the two characters.
There’s some flirting but Carol Marcus is mostly renown for her scientific skills. As for Captain Kirk? “So much happens, the action and plot is so fast, there really isn’t much time for Kirk to do anything but save the crew,” Pine said.
Any Trekkie would love to be Captain Kirk, at least for a bit. Whether it’s when you’re in complete rage and you feel the need to yell from the utmost bottom of your gut the name Khan or in subtle annoyance of the multitude of tribbles that have invaded your closet, you know you want to express yourself with confident attitude the way James Tiberius Kirk does. Why not? I mean, c’mon, who wouldn’t want to, right? So, here’s a little visual guide to help you. Please practice carefully and make sure you’re using the right amount of hair product when expressing yourself as Kirk does, or it could just look plain silly.
