I want Pon Farr back!

Yes, quite spectacular and lots of fun on a big screen. But as a diehard fan of the late Theodore Sturgeon, I confess I was upset that Spock and Uhura seem to be all lovey-dovey without the proper ritual of Pon Farr.

Honestly. Is nothing sacred?

For further commentary, particularly on the characterization of Uhura in the new Star Trek movie:

Star Trek, Uhura and Structures of Authority (Female Impersonator)

Uhura in the new Star Trek movie (Feministing Community)

Kirking Out (Racialicious)

Star Trekking In Search of a Strong Female Character (Rebellious Jezebel Blogging)

Open thread: the new Star Trek movie (The Hathor Legacy)


And this is funny!
