Kirk and Spock: A Guide How To Get In Each Other’s Personal Space, As Often As Possible, On Even The Paltriest Excuse.
SFX Magazine: Do you guys get why people are so crazy about Star Trek? Have you ever been in that position?
QUINTO: Not really. Not like this… I was obsessed with Jodie Foster in Nell and the fact that she created her own language.
PINE: Oh fuck! [Claps hands and breaks down in laughter.] I wanted to be a baseball player for many years. Then I realised I was mediocre. I was a huge Yankees fan even though I was from Los Angeles, because my father grew up in New York…
QUINTO: [Feigns snoring.](x)
Uhura, Emotion, and Language
So I was rewatching Star Trek Into Darkness clips and it struck me that when Uhura is overwhelmed with emotion, her first instinct is to cover her mouth. Now, this is of course a pretty general expression of shock, but I thought it was particularly interesting in Uhura’s case due to the repetition of the gesture within the film and the fact that she’s a linguist.
The first instance occurs as they lose contact with Spock in the volcano and again when she sees that Kirk has died. Note too how she uses one hand for Spock (who is in danger) versus two for Kirk (who is already dead).
I thought it was a nice character moment for her in that it shows how she is affected — her job is to communicate, to know precisely what to say and how to say it — but when faced with a situation that engenders pain, anguish, fear, or heartbreak, her first instinct is to cover her mouth. As though she can’t vocalize the emotions she’s experiencing.
I doubt I’m the first to note this, but it’s just something that struck me.
