** In ''The Finest Hours'', Chris Pine plays a complete stickler for the rules who has to learn when it's okay to bend them.

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter: As SFDebris points out, the villain described in the novelization/comic version[[note]]a working stiff who risks charges of treason to help save his world, working with Spock toward the solution only to have the Vulcans slam the door in his face, dooming his race... and then having nothing to live for but revenge[[/note]] is more complex than what Nero was, even sympathetic, and could've actually outdone Khan. He goes on to state that without this, the version of the villain we get is "Some emo with a trident."

I'm not the OP, but I agree that they apply for the reasons I've stated.

%%* StrangledByTheRedString: Spock and Uhura. Neither of them show any indication that they are in a relationship with anyone and none of their interactions with each other have any romantic overtones at all until TheReveal.

* NeverLiveItDown: Due to this movie as far as the internet is concerned this movie and EVERYTHING JJ Abrams will ever make from this movie on will be nothing but one giant LensFlare, even after Film/StarTrekIntoDarkness and all his other works since then have significantly toned them down.

** The fact that Spock and Uhura are a couple drew fan outrage as there was only some mild flirting in the original series. However, Nichelle Nichols and Leonard Nimoy have stated that the Uhura/Kirk kiss was intended for Spock and Roddenberry had intended for them to be a couple but couldn't because of the blatant racism towards Nichols at the time, so when they were told that Spock and Uhura would be a couple in the reboot, they wholeheartedly approved of it.

** As a Korean-American, Creator/JohnCho as Sulu also attracted controversy with fans until Creator/GeorgeTakei, the original Sulu, explained that Sulu is a pan-Asian character, meant to represent all Asian nationalities. Also, the original Sulu was canonically born in San Francisco (which has a sizable and diverse Asian population), and thus there was no basis for assuming that he would be of a single nationality any more than this would be true of a European, Latino or African character. There is a bit SocietyMarchesOn in play here, as people only marrying members of their own national[=/=]ethnic group is in decline even in the present day real world, and there is no reason to imagine that 300 years from now such a push for ethnic purity would reassert itself, especially when you have InterspeciesRomance going on!
