Vulcan Female in TREK Sequel?

In what's looking to be the latest strange example of sneaking in vague new information on J.J. Abrams' upcoming Star Trek sequel while promoting new technology, the New York Times featured a piece on the iPad and somehow provided something for genre fans to ponder today. In the story covering the new Apple product, the story snuck in how producers and writers for Paramount Pictures' planned 2012 sequel sent photos to each other of an actress featuring those quirky Vulcan ears.

Whether that implies we could be receiving a new love interest towards Zachary Quinto's Spock in the next installment or whether will see the pointy-eared return of a certain Vulcan female from the TOS theatrical franchise, we'll leave such theories to you fans to guess upon. Here's the information from the Times piece...

The attendees all brought smartphones — gadgets far more powerful than the videophones imagined by the "Star Trek" writers 40 years ago. Bob Orci brought something the writers back then could only dream of: an iPad.

Mr. Orci, meeting with the producers J. J. Abrams, Damon Lindelof and Bryan Burk, and his fellow writer Alex Kurtzman, jump-started the discussion with an iPad slide show, showing stills from the first film, snapshots of potential locations and a photo of a suggested actress for one of the roles. On the woman's photo, he had used his iPad to paint on a Vulcan ear.

What do you think? Sound off below with your thoughts. Abrams is expected to begin production sometime early next year with hopes to have it in theaters June 29, 2012. The confirmed returning stars include; John Cho, Simon Pegg, Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, Karl Urban and Anton Yelchin.

So we're going to keep sliding downhill and likely have the first Vulcan bimbo? Because we know the Orion girl in the first was cast simply for her knockers and underwear, which is fine for a comedy, but not here.

The actress in the image is not someone they're actively considering, they will be looking for someone like her but less well known. One of the names they mentioned is an Asian actress who has been in a sci-fi network show but is nowhere near a household name.

This is silly. People are jumping to conclusions here. The article clearly states that "Alex Kurtzman, jump-started the discussion with an iPad slide show, showing stills from the first film, snapshots of potential locations and a photo of a suggested actress for one of the roles. On the woman's photo, he had used his iPad to paint on a Vulcan ear."

This does NOT say this actress was considered for the new film, but for the original film, and the painting on of the Vulcan ears was to demonstrate the abilities of the iPad.

um actually you guys this might be a tip of the hat to the female vulcan that was origionally played by Kirste Alley if I remember right. I hope they do the charachter in a way that is better.  ( Hell I know I got her name spelled wrong but at least you guys know what i mean )

How many Vulcan females are left after the 2009 ST film?

 @Calibur  I think you are talking about Lt. Saavik from Star Trek 2... it's possible that she survived.

Would be a great twist for her character to be a little bitter and remorseful about losing her home world because of the Romulans. In the original timeline she was attracted to and idolized Spock.

Personally I want to see the Klingons or the Mirror Universe! Maybe even a side story for comedy with Tribbles! Lol!

Star Trek II: The Rise of Kahn.  I thought it was a no-brainer.

Too early to form an opinion....except for Kara.  Come on Kara, you know you want to sound off on the next Star Trek movie.  ;)

What about T'POL from the Enterprise series ... she was ok to look at,  just hoping

LocoLobo73 10/26/2010 7:55:08 AM

ROTTEN: Might be closer to the character, cause given the timeline Savik would not be old enough in the current storyline, In WoK Savik was fresh out of the Starfleet and was going on her first training mission. T'Pol would be atleast in the right age range and she would have been more than likely off planet or on Earth. She would also have been a ranking member of Star Fleet Command. It would also be fitting since they do mention many characters from Enterprise the series.
