Star Trek Into Darkness writer Damon Lindelof apologises for including 'misogynistic' Alice Eve underwear scene

Trekkies and moviegoers around the globe have been very vocal with their criticism about one particular scene in the new Star Trek Into Darkness movie. A short scene in the blockbuster that features a semi nude Alice Eve has caused such furore that the film's producer has publicly apologised for it. Damon Lindelof used his Twitter account to say sorry for the clip which has been deemed 'misogynistic' and unnecessary by some viewers.

Has the screenwriter apologized to the actress? The director? This is beyond stupid. To appreciate the female form is to hate it at the same time. Oh, okay.

Oh get real. You see more skin on a daytime soap opera. To Hollywood, porn is “free speech” but a bit of harmless flirting is “misogynistic”.

I'm not sure about the screenwriter, but the actress is definitely not guilty.

Misogynistic? Hardly. People should have been up in arms over a scene earlier in the story if they are going to get their trousers twisted over something.
Sheesh!

What furor? We see Alice Eve in her underwear and that is indicative of a hatred of women?

Really?

And... has anyone told Damon Carol Marcus is the mother of Kirk's son in the original Trek timeline?

I think the scene was unnecessary, but this is the Leftist thought police enforcers. Nothing more. There is nothing misogynist about the scene. This is all about enforcing feminist dogma. And the director, no doubt a leftist himself, was all too eager to kneel before the alter of political correctness.

Phooey.

But Damon is ONE of the three screenwriters. How much do you wanna bet Damon did this without the knowledge or consent of his fellow screenwriters or JJ Abrams?

Oh, to be a fly on the wall in JJ's office...

Feminists are upset because they don’t look like that,
and know that women who do have an advantage over them in society.

Mission accomplished. Now I just want to see the movie even more! ;-) Anyone think they may be going for a little manufactured controversy? Just sayin’... Heck, I was planning on seeing it anyway, I’m a Trekkie since the original series, so you know I was going to no matter what...

How exactly does this qualify as misogyny? Islam, now THAT is misogyny. Another word that seems to have changed meaning to enforce PC behavior.

Showing Kirk in bed with, not one but two female cat people is ok (freaky psuedo bestiality is fine with libs) but simply showing a normal female body in something that needs to be apologized for.

And this after all those yeomen running around in tiny little miniskirts in the original, Deanna Troi in her skintight leotards in TNG, and a scene in Star Trek Enterprise where a male and female character spent about a minute in their underwear slathering disinfectant gel all over one another in a decontamination chamber.

Not to mention, Seven of Nine.

I remember in the first reboot of Star Trek we saw Zoe Saldana, Chris Pine, and Rachel Nichols in their underwear.

Oh, a beautiful, blonde woman in lingerie, oh the humanity! This is seriously one of the least offensive things coming out of Hollyweird, I find shows and movies that push the gay agenda to be way more offensive.

This scene was neither misogynistic nor gratuitous, it was completely necessary and moved the story along. That is my story and I am sticking to it.

I has thought that underwear that far into the future would be some type of personal semi transparent force screen... personally adjustable for touch, semi touch, or “don’t touch me” static shock settings! Other features might include “potty on the run” disintegration features and antiflatulence protections with noise suppression! Energize!

Such a pity. The original ST had women who were unreservedly beautiful, wearing, if somewhat risque, then definitely striking and unique costumes, elaborate hairstyling, and unafraid of their sexuality. They *knew* they were women, and they liked being women.

Importantly, it also included many older women, who while dressed somewhat more demurely, still projected an image of strong femininity and competence.

By the time of the movies and The Next Generation, unisex outfits, low maintenance hair, and mannequin facial expressions had taken over. While they might be intellectually able, they were emotionally deficient. And some came across as positively lame-brained.

(Enemy ship communication: “We will destroy you!”, followed by firing an array of weapons.)

Ship’s Counselor: “Captain, I sense ‘anger’ coming from that other ship!”

Captain: “No ****, Counselor?”

Truthfully, that character was so underwritten that some wit got an inflatable sex doll, dressed it up as Counselor Troi, and gave it a randomized voice player to say inanities at the touch of a button. He would ask it an obviously rhetorical question, then push its button, and it would quote random statements made by the character in the series.

The lady in question is Carol Marcus, who will one day in the future have Kirk’s son, David, who will be brutally murdered by Doc Brown...er Klingon commander Krug.

there is no gratuitous skin in star trek - being star trek, the stories require it.

Agreed. Perhaps you should have included a spoiler alert.
