“Whenever I watch this scene, you know, I’ve seen it a gazillion times, and I think, ‘Okay, I’m not really emotional’ while watching ‘I’m not emotional, I’m not emotional.’ And then she does this thing when she says, ‘Okay.’ And literally, even now, watching that, she is so great in that moment. I just cannot…
And it was interesting talking to her about it. We were in Mexico for the release of the film there, and she was telling me what she was processing when she was doing that scene. And it was actually kind of amazing to hear. She was going through this whole thing, like, thinking that his mother, his mommy, died, you know, the woman who gave birth to him and breastfed him, and she had this whole story in her mind of his loss and how emotional she was. And literally she thought of a story that was a very personal story about her family, what she and her family went through. It was a fascinating thing, actually, to hear the depth to which she had considered what Uhura would go through, and then how to find strength and not just pure vulnerability. But you see in that fraction of a moment when she says, ‘Okay,’ you see that vulnerability come through, and I just love it that she was so restrained.” - JJ Abrams (DVD commentary)

Enjoy these final moments of peace. For I have returned to have my vengeance.
There’s greatness in you. But there’s none of an ounce of humility. You think that you can’t make mistakes, but there’s gonna come a moment when you realize you’re wrong about that - and you’re gonna get yourself and everyone under your command killed.
I don’t know anything about Star Trek,
but every time I scroll down and see Benedict Cumberbatch in that glass cell
all I can think
is he’s trapped in a giant microwave
like instant Benedict just add water
