New Behind Scenes Star Trek Sequel Pix Show Chris Pine In New Starfleet Uniform Variant April 30, 2012

by Staff , Filed under: Spoilers,Star Trek Into Darkness , trackback

Following up on yesterday’s reported spy pictures from behind the scenes at a Star Trek sequel location, a new set of pictures featuring Chris Pine have emerged. These now appear to confirm that the pair are wearing a new Starfleet uniform variant. Check it out below, minor spoilers.


Captain Kirk struts behind the scenes

These pictures come from X17, same source as the Quinto pics reported yesterday and were apparently shot on the same day.

Pine’s Kirk can be seen wearing the same uniform as Quinto’s Spock so this appears to confirm that the black shirt and grey pants is a new uniform variant (or at least part of one) for the new movie. The shirt is the same one Pine’s Kirk wore for much of the 2009 Star Trek movie and is actually the shirt worn under the regular gold, blue and red tunics. Those standard uniforms will also be worn in the Star Trek sequel so this version with the grey slacks and without the tunic could just be a variant for certain situations.

Quinto wearing same outfit as Pine (reported yesterday)

UPDATE: As noted by commenters below, it is also possible that we could just be seeing Pine and Quinto wearing part of the grey outfit worn by instructors in the 2009 Star Trek film. That would mean that the actors were spotted just without their jackets on. This grey uniform was also worn by Pike when he visited Kirk at the Iowa bar, so could possibly be an outfit that officers wear when not on board ship.

1. Ciaran - April 30, 2012

Uniform variant? This movie sucks. PERIOD.

2. CraigM - April 30, 2012

I hope they stick with the traditional gold/blue/red shirts. Seeing the crew in all black/grey would make very un-Trek.

3. Dennis - April 30, 2012

All that’s changed here is the trousers – the tops are functionally identical to the black undershirt that was supposed to be part of the duty uniform in the last Trek movie.

4. sunfell - April 30, 2012

I really like these. They remind me of some of the variants of actual military dress.

5. VZX - April 30, 2012

Strange. I don’t like the look of the crease in the pants. Of course, the costumes always look better in the movie, so I’m not concerned about those.

I’m just that they will sport the classic look at least in some of the movie, as evident by the first set of spy pics with Spock and Uhura fighting Khan.

6. Gary Neumann - April 30, 2012


7. Duncan MacLeod - April 30, 2012

1. Ciaran

Seriously, wardrobe choices make the movie suck. PERIOD FULL STOP?

8. Blake Powers - April 30, 2012


9. Amish Electrician - April 30, 2012

they could be props…maybe JJ will not let them out with the real movie uni’s

10. Ciaran - April 30, 2012


No Duncan, it’s a culmination of what I’ve learned so far about the movie and that was the straw that broke the camel’s back.

11. Basement Blogger - April 30, 2012

Could the black shirt be an undershirt for part of a regular uniform? I’m not a fan of the subdued Starfleet insignia. I wish they made it gold so it would stand out. Reminds me of Kirk’s shirt before he ascended to captain in the 2009 movie.

12. Red Dead Ryan - April 30, 2012

I guessing that Kirk and Spock are wearing dress uniforms for the scene when they are dining with Khan on the Enterprise. :-)


You can stay home while the rest of us have a good time next May at the theatre.

13. Ciaran - April 30, 2012

Yes that black shirt is indeed the undershirt of the coloured department shirt. And yes, it’s the same type that Kirk wore through most of the first film.

14. LodownX - April 30, 2012

Khan… yawn… really… was Garth of Izar unavailable???

15. Starbase Britain - April 30, 2012

Im mortified that there could be some change in TOS uniforms. lets hope this is just a red herring.

16. 11 - April 30, 2012


For a look that says “I’m in command”, choose Starfleet Slacks…

Starfleet Slacks, available at retailers Federationwide.

17. LodownX - April 30, 2012

Was Garth of Izar not available for this movie?

18. jamesingeneva - April 30, 2012

While the thread in #12 has no real supporting proof, I think the signs all point to Khan which makes naming this one ST2 sort of an homage to the original. Anyone remember when the ARG kicked off? Trying to remember how much time there was between the ARG and launch of the movie.

19. Commodore Mike of the Terran Empire - April 30, 2012

I hope that is just a landing party uniform and not a new one from Tos or Trek 09. If so. VERY DISAPOINTED!!!!

20. Jamziz - April 30, 2012

I’m pleased about this – Wasn’t particularly taken by the costumes they put on display in the last film – they took the “trouble” to reinvent everything else but didn’t’ touch the uniforms for the most part – glad to see they got the pants right.

21. Andrew - April 30, 2012

There’s no way they would get rid of TOS uniform. Why would they feature TOS uniform throughout the first movie, and put Kirk in his classic shirt at the end just to get rid of them in the second one? This uniform is probably for some specific event in the movie. Perhaps like an awards ceremony or something.

22. TrekTech - April 30, 2012

@19 agreed. Ive been saying all along that if they wanted to use a charismatic character that hadnt gotten their due it shouldve been Garth. He couldve EASILY matched Khan for viciousness and the story of how a Fleet Captain lost it is one we hadnt seen. This Khan thing is just lazy and although I love Cumberbatch I dont buy him as Khan at all. Throw in some off the rack Dockers from Target and Budgineering again and this is a fail for me. I was at the premier for Trek 09. I wont be for this one.

23. Jason - April 30, 2012

OK. Does NO-ONE recognize this as the dress/instructor’s uniform that Pike and Spock wore in the first movie? They are just not wearing the jacket.

24. TrekTech - April 30, 2012

I should add that the costumes for 09 looked like Halloween costumes with that lame dye sub patterning and the IRON ON RANK BRAID and motorcycle pants with a black turtleneck with a silkscreened crest. The money must all go to CGI because it sure as hell didnt get spent on wardrobe or sets. “OOOh, all the superhero movies are adding clever little patterns to their spandex we should too.”. The uniforms looked cheap and now they are looking cheaper.

25. Caek - April 30, 2012

Yeah… talk about chicken little syndrome.

26. Andy - April 30, 2012

Suck or not. I’m going to see.

27. Jamziz - April 30, 2012

@24 Looks like they’re not using this guy to his full potential:

28. Admiral Kent - April 30, 2012

Looks to me like they’re wearing something akin to Pike’s uniform at the end of the last film…thus pulling in a little TMP.

29. Pensive's Wetness - April 30, 2012

*nods* Looking good. pretty much they got my $40 bucks already… :D

30. section9 - April 30, 2012

I swear to G-d, if they don’t get the Shat to do his “KHAAAAAAAAAAAAAN” primal scream, this movie will officially suck.

@boborci, you have been warned!

31. Andrew - April 30, 2012


I actually hadn’t thought of that yet. Hearing Pine scream Khan could be pretty epic.

32. porthoses bitch - April 30, 2012

Nice to finally see a trek uniform that I wouldnt mind wearing in public….will never forget seeing a 350 lb. Guy wearing a tos gold uniform at the grocery store….made me cringe to be a fan…

33. captain spock - April 30, 2012

Joel Godsmith passed away @ the age of 54 joel is the son of Jerry goldsmith he along with his dad wrote the music to star trek First contact Jerry worked on the music for star gate sg1 & star gate Atlantis& star trek:first contact

it dont say how he died ….

34. Al - April 30, 2012

AICN says Cumberpatch is Khan – but I guessing the plot is Space Seed, not Wrath of Khan from the uniforms.

35. Lt. BAILEY - April 30, 2012

I don’t think I would want to add this “new” style to my collection…

36. DonDonP1 - April 30, 2012

#33 R.I.P., Joel Goldsmith.

37. Jamziz - April 30, 2012

@30 knowing JJ and his crowd I figure they’ll try to work a relatively similar moment into this film.. Seeing how Kirk is almost totally unfamiliar with Khan, unlike in STII, it may seem silly to see to see Chris Pine yell about a guy he barely knows.. All we can do is wait and see.

38. Morgan4242 - April 30, 2012

Could be the uni Pike had at the end of the 1st movie.

So they wear ST TMP unis for the 1st 15 minutes, then the red tunics for the rest of the movie, then they all have Next Gen suits in the next movie that will be in theaters in 2018!

39. The Art of Film is Dead. - April 30, 2012


I guess people just see things differently. I think this “uniform”, particularly the slacks, looks like leisure wear a corporate excucutive would wear and not a starfleet officer.

40. DeflectorDishGuy - April 30, 2012

Guys, relax. It’s the black undershirt of the duty uniform with different pants. The black shirt is the same one from the previous film, with its small “watermark” type starfleet insignia. Think of it like underarmor.

41. Keachick - rose pinenut - April 30, 2012

In the TOS episode, Space Seed, (and shown in all other TOS episodes) the dress uniform worn there was the same colour as that worn by the crew member on normal duty. The grey pants are the only variant on anything we have seen so far…

42. DeflectorDishGuy - April 30, 2012

My guess is they are wearing the black undershirts around to throw off leaks. Better to strut around in lightweight stuff we’ve already seen than leak full wardrobe and make all us nerds go ZOMG NEW UNIS!

43. Khan was Framed! - April 30, 2012

It’s not a variant, it’s the academy/starfleet HQ grey uniform which Spock & Pike wore in St’09 with the jacket off.

C’mon guys, think before you post.

44. Celeste - April 30, 2012

So much for the hoodies they were all wearing to hide their costumes, ay?

45. tman - April 30, 2012

Not understanding how this categorizes as a new uniform?! This seems to be the SAME dress uniform worn in Star Trek 2009 if you take the Nehru jacket off. I don’t know about you but I frequently take my outer jacket off on a hot day if I don’t need to wear it…

46. P Technobabble - April 30, 2012

No wonder Vulcans never speculate…
I’m thinkin no matter what we’re expecting it ain’t gonna be that.

47. Nano - April 30, 2012

Least put a stripe on the legs or something…

48. Dee - lvs moon' surface - April 30, 2012

#41. Keachick… there’s a video also…

49. Richard - April 30, 2012


The picture leaks are out of context and people are complaining. Here’s an idea, how about we wait until an official trailer to decide.

Dress uniform, academy uniform, new work uniform, instructor uniform.

Khan, no Khan.

Just all up in the air for another twelve months.

50. Jason - April 30, 2012

@ 1 –

Amen brother.

Those are some really nice suit pants for exploring the galaxy in, don’t ya think?

51. Christopher Roberts - April 30, 2012

I’m avoiding the other thread for now, with it’s major spoilers.

Am I doing the right thing, do you think? [/temptation]

52. Magic_Al - April 30, 2012

My definition of spoilers is information not officially released before the film. I don’t think any of the recent spoilers qualify as spoilers for the movie, merely as spoilers for information that would seem very likely to be revealed by the movie’s eventual advertising. But don’t get mad if I’m wrong!

53. PEB - April 30, 2012

eh, they wore cloaks during production of the last film, they could just be wearing these because JJ knows there are pictures being leaked all the time now

54. Michael heintz - April 30, 2012

STAR TREK 12:”The Search For Wardrobe”! What’s next the 1-piece old ELVIS 70’s jumpsuit? LOL

55. ST Fan - April 30, 2012

Well, in the video Dee posted it shows Kirk walking to his camper to read the script, so he was obviously off set. My guess is that he took off his Star Trek uniform shirt and just wore the undershirt around cause it was hot. Haha. the pants are a little funny, but hey….costumes look different in the movies!

56. PEB - April 30, 2012

wow, even chewing on whatever he’s chewing on…pine maintains his hottness. ah…chris pine…

57. SirMartman - April 30, 2012

Isnt that Ponch’s police motorcycle in the background ??


Da Da Dee Daaa Daaaaaaa !!

58. J. - April 30, 2012


Were any of you guys ALIVE when Star Trek ’09 came out? Go back and watch it again (including the writers of this article).

What shirt does Kirk wear for a large portion of the movie?



It’s the undershirt that the tunic goes over. Ya know how I know it’s the same? A) I have eyes and the ability to see detail, and B) the grey delta shield is the same. It’s mind-blowing how so many of you didn’t pick up on this.


59. ster julie - April 30, 2012

#48. Duude, what happened to his pointy sideburns? They are squared off in the link you provided!

60. punkspocker - April 30, 2012

Milton Berle called, he wants his pants back.

61. Phil - April 30, 2012

@58. Maybe he was demoted for impersonating an officer? :-)

62. Sean the Gaffer - April 30, 2012

We have been filming the “crews” with several different uniforms that fit the many different scenarios for the film. Getting close to the end of the shoot. Sad day when it ends.

63. Sebastian S. - April 30, 2012

Sure hope that’s part of a dress uniform (and not a new regular duty uniform) because they look like the ugly gray slacks my late father used to wear….

With each new ‘spoiler’ (Budgineering again, Khan & Klingons again, ugly new uniforms) I’m just feeling more and more trepidation about a movie I was really looking forward to only a week or so ago.

As the disappointment rises; the expectations diminish. This would be a really good time for Bob Orci to post, “(Belated) April Fool’s, everyone!”

Oh well; there’s still “Prometheus” …..


64. Sebastian S. - April 30, 2012

# 60.

ROTFLMAO!! My thoughts exactly….


65. Sean the Gaffer on the set of the new Star Trek Movie - April 30, 2012

And yes, some of the uniforms are from the last film and everyone looks great in them this time too.

66. Maximus - April 30, 2012

@#1 and #7

Couldn’t agree more.

67. VulcanFilmCritic - April 30, 2012

This is a StarFleet uniform???
You’re kidding me right? A black turtleneck and slacks?
Really??? Not much for the ladies to fantasize about, is it?
They look like college library security guards.

Nimoy and the other crewmen looked so cool back in the day…It was almost shocking to see him with his tunic off in “The Naked Time.” (In the 1960’s we were shocked by black underwear on men, especially worn with those tight cropped pants and black leather boots.) The t-shirt was short sleeved, so you also got a nice view of his arms. Heaven….*sigh*

I doubt whether this Jean-Claude Penny look will inspire ANY fan art this time around.

68. VulcanFilmCritic - April 30, 2012

I’m going to have nightmares about this tonight:

69. Captain Karl - April 30, 2012

It’s simple…they’re sporting the Starfleet leisure suit. They just don’t want the pap spies to see the matching wide-lapel jacket.

70. Sebastian S. - April 30, 2012

# 67.

“They look like college library security guards.”

I know.
I half expect to hear Kirk say “Information desk is downstairs and to your right, miss…”

71. Adam E - April 30, 2012

Has anyone enhanced the picture to see if that is a script in his hand?!

72. Anthony Thompson - April 30, 2012

A LOT more leaks on this film than ’09. Indicative of more interest?

73. Aurore - April 30, 2012


Looking good, looking good, gentlemen…


74. AwesomeJohn22 - April 30, 2012

You’ve been watching too much CSI.

75. NCM - April 30, 2012

60. punkspocker – April 30, 2012

“Milton Berle called, he wants his pants back.”

Yes, these gray slacks and mock turtlenecks are timeless classics, comparable to many things; none of which speak to comfort, action, adventure, or sex appeal.

Opportunity lost; they have GQ models (who can act!) and they dress them to envy their more stylish Lands End counterparts–or clergymen. I picture these guys wearing triple-pleated khakis and boat shoes or Karachi sandals on shore leave. Can you imagine their excitement when these duds were revealed?

I found their uniforms unappealing last time, too; but still enjoyed the film.

76. CarlG - April 30, 2012

Looks like the bottom half of Pike’s admiral uniform but not white. The lower-ranks dress uniform without the jacket perhaps?

77. Mikey1091 - April 30, 2012

I’m sorry, but how is that NEW? It looks JUST LIKE the one he wore almost the WHOLE movie in the 2009 Trek (minus the pants, they were black these are gray). Anyway, any news on who the villain might be? I’m hearing Khan.

78. Obsidian - April 30, 2012

I’d rather have gold and the other colors. Remember when the TNG cast switched to grey? Starting in First Contact I think? Hated it! So drab and boring.

79. Keachick - rose pinenut - April 30, 2012

Perhaps the grey pants are just the pants uniform the cast get to wear as they go from set to trailer etc. The pictures of Zachary Quinto also had him near a trailer – JJ’s boring off-set uniform for the cast, with a touch of Starfleet – a little JJ spoiler…;) seen on the black skivvy.

Gosh, that trailer looked dark inside…

80. CoffeeProf - April 30, 2012

I think some of you guys need to go back to your basements, have your mom make you a grilled cheese, and calm down. Stop making judgments based on pics you see offset that are out of context.

81. DeltaVega - April 30, 2012

Hey Sean the gaffer. What do your duties involve on set?

82. It's Paramount - May 1, 2012

What you can’t see are the 70’s style inside zip up boots. Have a look:

83. Romulus - May 1, 2012

Comeon Chris get your posture right, your back will thank you for it in years to come.

84. Spock/Uhura Admirer ;-) - May 1, 2012



@# 60

Opportunity lost; they have GQ models (who can act!) and they dress them to envy their more stylish Lands End counterparts–or clergymen.

Well, NCM, I actually like the black shirts with the grey slacks, and I have no doubt that they’ll be in their regular uniforms in the film. However, if by chance the wardrobe department wants for forgo dressing Zachary in a shirt for a scene or two for some reason, I will not complain. I don’t want to believe that he got all buff just to stay fully clothed and for the fight scenes…

85. Kered Olegna - May 1, 2012

I know I’m not the only one who noticed Quinto is scoping out some Terran booty…

86. Spock/Uhura Admirer ;-) - May 1, 2012

I don’t think he was checking that guy out. It looks to me like it’s just the angle from which the shot was taken. I could be wrong, but that’s what it looks like to me. Doesn’t he have a boyfriend anyway, I thought? I don’t really keep up on these things, but if he does, then I’m pretty sure that he wasn’t looking at another guy.

87. Bluejfk - May 1, 2012

Now we know what they did with all of Steve Jobs’ remaining black mock T turtle necks!!

88. CAPT KRUNCH - May 1, 2012

What’s up with the lack of security over there…pictures and spoilers ..J.J. must be mad enough to chew nutronium!…Nice crease on those pants!!
Starfleet drycleaners doin there job!!!
pasty white Khan
and grey trousers….

It’s TREK and I don’t mind!!!

89. T'Cal - May 1, 2012

Much ado about nothing…

90. Charla - May 1, 2012

Yes T’Cal. Agree. I think it is a way to throw off people from knowing what is really being worn. LOL

91. indranee - May 1, 2012

That’s not a variant. It’s the black shirt underneath the jacket.

92. Bart - May 1, 2012

Shouldn’t command wear red? Picard had red, Janeway had red, Sisko had red, Archer had red. Gold should be for engineering.

93. THX-1138 - May 1, 2012

Good to know that Dickies will still be making mechanics pants for Starfleet. Time to invest.

94. Lord Garth, Formerly of Izar - May 1, 2012

No that was only in the garbage Next Gen era
Real TOS captains wear Gold unless the red is a cool military nautical themed uniform jacket over a white turtleneck

95. Keachick - rose pinenut - May 1, 2012

What is wrong with Chris’s posture? Actually he is often photographed when out in public with his head down. Sometimes it is because he is walking with someone (much) shorter than himself. He is quite tall with a narrow, lean body – 6’1″.

96. Keachick - rose pinenut - May 1, 2012

I meant to write also that I am more interested in what he seems to have on his right wrist – the hand holding the *book/script*(?). A pinenut is curious about such minor details…:)

97. No Khan - May 1, 2012

Thats the black undershirt.

98. THX-1138 - May 1, 2012


What ridiculous idiocy.

99. BringBackKirkPrime - May 1, 2012

It would be interesting to enlarge the script he’s carrying, might be a few spoilers there, lol

100. NCM - May 1, 2012

84. Spock/Uhura Admirer ;-) – May 1, 2012

“Well, NCM, I actually like the black shirts with the grey slacks, and I have no doubt that they’ll be in their regular uniforms in the film. However, if by chance the wardrobe department wants for forgo dressing Zachary in a shirt for a scene or two for some reason, I will not complain. I don’t want to believe that he got all buff just to stay fully clothed and for the fight scenes…”

Why, Keachick, I’m surprised at you! It’s Quinto you want to see flex his pecs?! Pine’s been working out, too, and if contours barely contained by his turtleneck snuggie aren’t misleading, I’d say your leading man’s more shapely than his second–didn’t Pine get nominated most fit U.S. male by a men’s mag., or some such?

Maybe the sedate slacks and full coverage shirts are a ruse–to heighten the hot-flash wave effect through the theater when the shirts come off!:}

101. Dee - lvs moon' surface - May 1, 2012

#95. Keachick…

I know you saw about that “arrogant and sexist” thing … It seems that now I was also accused of being a PR of CP… but I suspect about those people who they are and why they are disappointed with CP… and I refuse to have a serious talk with those people there… or “that person” with different nicknames… you never know… LOL

What about these photos and video… CP’s posture? … we know that Chris does not like being photographed on the set … I think he looks tired but is understandable since they are in the final weeks of filming… but anyway gorgeous… ;-) :-)

102. SPOCK/Uhura Fan ;-) - May 1, 2012


You do know I’m not Keachick, right? I’m not into Mr. Pine, but I have nothing against him. Plus, I’m not old enough for hot flashes (no offense). I know what you’re trying to say or saying, though, but I really wouldn’t mind shirtless Spock or a Spock/Uhura love scene. I’ve said so much in the past; I’m just not over the top with it (disclaimer: I am not directing this at anyone).

I just saw that that the Star Trek fairy was seemingly granting wishes and figured, “What the heck – I’ll mention it.” If it happens, I’ll be one happy girl. :-)

103. Spock/Uhura Admirer ;-) - May 1, 2012

This thread is trippy.

104. Phil - May 1, 2012

Well, knowing that they are remaking “Wrath of Khan” it’s very plausible that Kirk and Spock are teaching at Starfleey Academy now. Substutute Red Matter for the Genesis device, add the Klingons hell bent to get their hands on it, and away we go. Dissapointing.

105. Keachick - rose pinenut - May 1, 2012

#100 NCM – I never made the comments you quoted. Those were from Spock/Uhura Admirer.

But while you ask, Yes! I would definitely love to see the leading man of the movie (although I do wonder what with all the attention that the Spocks and *Khan are getting right now…ugh) flex his pecs and there need to be some seriously decent scenes showing that man in his beautiful natural state – no quick cuts here. There was a nice scene of him just in a robe and underwear in This Means War but the cut to the next scene was way too quick for my liking. This kind of poor editing needs to corrected immediately!

#101 – Yes, I did see those comments and I asked what evidence but I don’t think there has been any reply. Nothing unusual there, unfortunately.

Well, it seems that CP will be getting an invoice from you as well for PR services rendered. I thought I had also sent him one, as well as one to Bob Orci and JJ Abrams, because apparently I have also been JJ’s and Bob’s PR assistant as well… I don’t know about you, but I can’t keep doing this for free – I got bills to pay, heels to buy…:)

Perhaps I didn’t invoice them after all, because I have received no cheques yet.

Bob Orci and co. – are you getting this? I hope so. My rates are very reasonable and I give a special discount to that one fine conifer. Hear from you soon…:)!
Good man

106. Dee - lvs moon' surface - May 1, 2012

# 105. Keachick… LOL… also just for free here… ;-) :-)

107. LizardGirl - May 1, 2012

I like this very much. It’s a little more classy. Actually my dad wore something like this many years ago in the army, dark green slacks with a crease and a light green shirt (and a dark green hat that opened like a wallet). I believe this will probably be their planet side dress attire. I’m guessing for certain occasions.

It does have a more retro vibe and is sort of a shout out to the classic military attire, especially around the time TOS was TV. I like it very much indeed. It compliments our guys very nicely. ;)

108. Keachick - rose pinenut - May 1, 2012

Chris does look good wearing the black and grey. The pants have better tailoring than the black ones worn on Star Trek 09. If it is a sort of shout to the classic military vibe, that’s what I don’t like. I know that there is a military element to Starfleet of the 23rd century but I don’t want to see that side of the fleet’s activities emphasised through story or dress. Too much militaristic stuff already shown in movies, too much warmongering – not good karma!

Don’t know how else to express my deeply held objection.

“Space, the final frontier. These are the voyages…to seek out new life, new civilizations…to boldly go where no one has gone before”. All of mankind at some point has seen the barrel of a gun – certainly not boldly going anywhere new.

109. rm10019 - May 2, 2012

108 – I agree. Remember though even GR stressed that first and foremost Trek has to be exciting Action/Adventure. Only then can you effectively get the humanistic/IDIC stuff to the widest audience. Otherwise you end up with something like ‘Enterprise’, it says all the right things, but no one is there to hear it :)

110. Michael - May 2, 2012

OMG you mean they are changing something?! I hate them!
Not. Get over it people. Its a brave new timeline. Changes are going just get “worse” as time goes on.

111. Lord Garth, Formerly of Izar - May 2, 2012

I own a pair of Armani slacks just like them and a merino whool mock turtle

You’re right. Star Trek started getting more militaristic in the 80’s, with the original cast movies. And it became more rigid and structured in TNG and so on.

Yet there were always elements of that in TOS, but of course that wasn’t the focus of Star Trek. I do will have to agree with you and hope that there isn’t too much of that in this movie. It’s actually one of the strengths of TOS, besides using some terminology, it didn’t feel like a military drama at all.

Those guys still look good though!

102. SPOCK/Uhura Fan ;-) – May 1, 2012


You do know I’m not Keachick, right? … Plus, I’m not old enough for hot flashes (no offense).


LOL. For reasons I can’t fathom, I do sometimes get you two mixed up. apologies to you both. No offense intended–or taken, S/U. Apparently I’m not quite old enough, yet :] — any day now…

Don’t worry, Keachick. In a nod to fans who should be too old to care:), they’re sure to have NuKrik’s shirt get ripped to shreds–how did they not have that happen in the last flick, given all the opportunities?

114. Keachick - rose pinenut - May 2, 2012

I just hope that the black and grey won’t be a major feature of any new SF uniforms. It is not that I am against the colours – I am wearing black and navy blue as I write this and I have a navy blue and light grey outfit (worn with black leggings) but they are not uniforms that get worn everyday.

The red represents to me, within this context of SF being a quasi-military organisation as well, warmongering and bloodshed, while black and grey represents rigid, repressive conformity. The original TOS colours do not represent those things. They represented light and expansiveness of heart, intellect and soul. Everything since TOS was to me a step backwards (despite many of the costumes having better tailoring).

115. Keachick - rose pinenut - May 2, 2012

#102 and #113 – “You do know I’m not Keachick, right? … Plus, I’m not old enough for hot flashes (no offense).”

Huh? Here we go again – Spock/Uhura Admirer being a touch personal and provocative. “No offense”, well, of course…(read sarcasm). I thought, S/UA,you said you would stay out of my way. Shame you are not able to honour your own words.

BTW, the word is “flushes” and I don’t have to be old enough to know that. It’s just a matter of having a good basic general knowledge about what it means to be female, given that I am female.

116. Robert Blake - May 2, 2012

The good thing about the rebooted Trek is if you don’t like it it doesn’t count, because technically it doesn’t count anyway. These new movies aren’t really canon.

117. Spock/Uhura Admirer ;-) - May 2, 2012

Not that this needs to be pointed out but, here was the conversation for anyone that was interested:

NCM – “Maybe the sedate slacks and full coverage shirts are a ruse–to heighten the hot-flash wave effect…”

Me in reply – “I’m not old enough for hot flashes…”

I am allowed to reply to a post directed at me, right? (That was rhetorical, btw.) It may be hard for some people to believe, but not everything is about them… :-/

And in the spirit of replying to posts specifically directed at me:

@NCM #113

LOL. For reasons I can’t fathom, I do sometimes get you two mixed up. apologies to you both. No offense intended–or taken, S/U.

Now shame, NCM. You can fathom, but I’m not offended at all by it. :-) I am very self-aware, and so I don’t mind owning up to my having a moment there, and I did have a moment. It happens occasionally; it’s just not a state of being for me.

But I can tell you right now, if I see Spock/Zachary all buff and shirtless for some reason in the movie, I will have a bit of a moment. I apologize for it and put that moment on reserve in advance. ;-)

118. Keachick - rose pinenut - May 2, 2012

I took it as a reference to me. Given that you have recently been provocative and personal towards me, I did think it was yet another slight directed at me. Once again, your comments attempt to belittle me –

“It may be hard for some people to believe, but not everything is about them… :-/”
Why was that comment necessary? It was clearly directed at me. Did I ever say that everything was about me?

Sadly, Spock/Uhura Admirer, I have come to the conclusion that you are not a very nice person, nor are you, NCM. I recall a post of yours (NCM) on another thread many months back where your first comments to me were ultra-critical, rude and insensitive. Apparently, I had the *audacity* to respond to one of your posts (I was not at all rude) and you made no secret of how you disliked me and my style of writing and how you tended to ignore everything I wrote.

Have fun, girls! but then you already are, I should think.

I do note that Bob Orci (no doubt a far busier person than any one of us) wrote that he does bother to read all posts here. A man of class and fairness.

119. Spock/Uhura Admirer ;-) - May 2, 2012

Just as a general note: We’ve all come to our conclusions…

120. NCM - May 2, 2012


Oh dear, what did I do to provoke you, tonight? To find the posts you reference, you’d have to go back many months indeed (maybe a year or more?). I was fairly new to posting and hadn’t yet realized that you’re genuinely unaware of how abrasive your comments can be–you might ask yourself why you’ve had to repeat the “I was not at all rude” defense a few times, with various posters.

Yes, I can snark, but I only do so when I think someone deserves it, and I’ve never been surprised when they respond ‘appropriately.’

I can’t sustain a grudge with anyone, Keachick. If that’s your way, I’m not so callous as to say I don’t care, but it’s your choice.

BTW, in the U.S. the prevailing term is most definitely ‘hot flashes.’ I’ve never heard ‘hot flushes’ used–Americans probably couldn’t resist making jokes about steaming toilets were the term to surface much, here).

121. NCM - May 2, 2012

@117: Okay, ‘can’t fathom’ may have been too strong, but I was genuinely surprised by my error (not the first time it’s happened). You two are obviously very different, but, yes, share similarities (as in doggedly pursuing your arguments and your interests in Trek leading men).

I hope you get your moment (and don’t tell me you won’t feel a heat wave rise in that theater :)

122. Spock/Uhura Admirer ;-) - May 2, 2012

Oh, well, ‘heat wave’ is different than a ‘hot flash.’ ;-)

123. NCM - May 2, 2012

I was taking liberties.

124. DJT - May 3, 2012

So no update on the filming taking place in Bay Area?

Saw it on the news during dinner. Wondered if it is second unit shooting.

Anyways. Came straight here thinking of all places it would get reported, it would be here. But noooo.

I’m gassing up the old girl right now for a road trip!

125. Nick Cook - May 3, 2012

Uniform variants is a *good* thing. :)

126. Spock/Uhura Admirer ;-) - May 3, 2012


Feel free. :-)

127. 790 - May 3, 2012

“Hearing Pine scream kaaahhnnn!!!, sounds exciting to some of you?

Its no wonder trek is dead. With such low expectations this franchise has become a shallow stagnated mess.

128. Keachick - rose pinenut - May 3, 2012

No, NCM, I don’t normally hold grudges and I’m not sure why you keep saying that my posts are abrasive. On occasions, I can be pretty blunt – who isn’t sometimes. You certainly were, that day a year or so back, which is why I remember the tone even now. I have been wary of you ever since. I cannot recall everything you wrote, but the tone was not deserved. I do recall one phrase “yogism…” I didn’t even know what that referred to, aside from a reference to the ancient discipline of Yoga, which I did not see as relevant, but it was clearly a cheap shot, along with the rest of the post.

You may wish to be sarcastic or whatever…say “Boo hoo” but your first comments to me had me in tears – I did not know what I had said to deserve such a response and neither did my partner when he read all the posts connected with the subject matter. Please, next time, when you (and Spock/Uhura Admirer) wish to take cheap shots at my expense – take a good look in the mirror first.

One or two other posters on this site have done similar – come out of nowhere it seems, calling me for everything (or so it feels at times). Who the hell are you people? Honestly?! Most of the posters here are fine – they are not offensive or rude; they state their various opinions clearly and reasonably and I have always planned to do the same and hope and believe that this is what I have actually done.

You are the one who seems to think (from your point of view) that various people deserve to receive whatever from you… Right now, there is only one poster on this site who I feel *deserves* my very blunt, abrasive tone and that is jtd (refer other thread).

129. Spock/Uhura Admirer ;-) - May 3, 2012

If I felt like rehashing things, I’d reply. Instead, I’ll just say that some people don’t get it, and that’s been the problem. :-/


Don’t bother with a reply. She’s unfortunately only going to see things from where she’s coming from… (Not that I can’t appreciate hurt feelings, but when people don’t consider how their words can have an impact, but want that same consideration in return…) I’m done posting on this thread.

130. Keachick - rose pinenut - May 3, 2012

#129 – “when people don’t consider how their words can have an impact, but want that same consideration in return…”

I could say exactly the same about you. At least we can agree on one thing –

“I’ll just say that some people don’t get it, and that’s been the problem. :-/…
She’s unfortunately only going to see things from where she’s coming from… ”

Yes, Spock/Uhura Admirer, you are indeed only going to see things from where you are coming from. Then again, why shouldn’t you? After all, you don’t believe my take on reality is in line with anybody’s or everybody’s elses, including your own, of course (refer other thread on this site). I believe that I have given you similar *consideration* that you have given me on various occasions.

I’m not done posting on this thread (after all, it is about Chris Pine), but I’m done with you.

131. NCM - May 3, 2012

@128: Keachick; I often find your posts abrasive: You don’t see the same posts that way. We will wittingly or unwittingly irritate each other at times, but that’s a norm among posters; it doesn’t mean we can’t interact positively as well.

When I thought you were dogging me and were intentionally obnoxious, I wanted you to bug off and I responded with uncharacteristic vehemence. Under the circumstances, I didn’t care if I pissed you off, but under no circumstances would I have intentionally hurt your feelings. I am honestly sorry for those unintended consequences. Yet I also agree with what S/U says above, regarding impact and consideration.

Shifting thoughts, yet here again… another example of our differences in perception of what’s reasonable, what’s rude, what’s crossing the line: I find the other thread you mention utterly disturbing. I’d have been annoyed by some of jtd comments, but I’m stunned by some of the comments directed toward him.

Get angry, get even, but please don’t take anything I say in the future as hurtful.

132. Keachick - rose pinenut - May 3, 2012


133. Azrael - May 4, 2012

@NCM. I hope I was not one of those you referred to as a bully on the other thread. If I was I offer my most sincere apologies to all. I was bullied for many years in school, and I would not want to think of myself as being the kind to do that to others, but I will admit that I am often very abrasive, both verbally and in settings like this. I could go into reasons for it but I am not going to take up everyone’s time with it.

134. LizardGirl - May 4, 2012

I too will apologize. I recently posted a long rant aimed at posters that annoyed me to the point of real anger. I hope to react better in the future (I can only hope!) :) That doesn’t mean that from I won’t make mistakes but I will try to be more aware of the situation. And I realize that others may say things that may irritate me. I will make a real endeavor to “roll with the punches” and not to get so hot under the collar about it. I’m sorry if I’ve offended anyone in my past posts!

135. LizardGirl - May 4, 2012

I meant: from time to time…

136. NCM - May 4, 2012

@Azrael. Plenty of people were provoked by things jtd said, and responded in anger; but the bullies joined the circle and bait club and mirthfully scripted unnerving taunts. I didn’t take attendance.

In the best scenario, jtd was a troll who found a bunch of easy targets and fed well. At worst, he’s a desperately lonely, unsettled human being looking for encouragement to move closer to the edge.

As for taking up everyone’s time? Consider how we spend our time here, Azrael!

137. NCM - May 4, 2012

134. LizardGirl

Would seem I’ve managed to avoid your sharp tongue, LizardGirl (tongue in cheek :)

I also decided to lighten up my rhetoric a few months ago.


138. Jemini - May 5, 2012

I didn’t read all the comments and probably someone already said it but these don’t seem “new” uniforms to me. Don’t they wear a black under shirt below the colored uniforms? (Spock surely did in the other movie)

139. Peon - May 5, 2012

To me it looks like they haven’t finished getting dressed for filming.

140. Keachick - rose pinenut - May 5, 2012

It turns out that jtd and the other two pseudonyms he took was sockpuppeting and has been banned by moderator, Anthony Pascale. Everyone got sucked in by that so-n-so (refer AP’s post on other thread).

141. joey in da mix - May 6, 2012

i just love they are filming….yes it was diff from our trek galaxy taste…but it was action packed and very exiting!!!!

142. Pippi - May 7, 2012

Talk about REDUNDANT dialogue on here about the uniforms. WHO REALLY CARES?! Is that what you pay $10 a ticket for, to see the costumes? Methinks you have bigger problems than wardrobe malfunctions…I can’t wait for the new movie to come out. I’ll be the one who doesn’t give a crap what they’re wearing, just so long as they bring the action.

143. davetharave - May 8, 2012

They should have brought back the Doomsday Machine.

144. Andy - May 11, 2012

I love how only a handful of people are smart enough to realize that the black is an undershirt, not some brand new uniform replacing the old ones. Most people on here jump to the wrong conclusions because…I don’t know, they’re angry or whatever. Take some things with a pinch of salt every once and a while. You don’t know the movie’s going to suck, you simply want it to be bad because it’s not your 40 year old Star Trek anymore and can’t deal with a little change. Or because you hated the 2009 one and think nothing’s sacred anymore. I don’t know. Just, be reasonable. Take some time to do other things and not dwell on this every day. Life’s to short to get mad about pictures on the internet.

PS. They probably aren’t wearing the gold or blue because that draws more attention than black. The security for the film has been lacking but black draws less attention.
