My Future Ex-Wife Of The Week: Zoe Saldana

May 7, 2009


It’s about to be on, cotdammit! With countless lucky bastards having already seen the new Star Trek movie and offering up geekgasm-soaked reviews, I have almost no doubt in my mind that it’ll be nothing short of awesome (as Michael Bay would say). It certainly can’t be as bad as X-Men Origins: Wolverine. But getting past the sci-fi stuff, you’ve got some fine ladies in this film! (Kirk might even throw down with one of those green-skinned sex slaves from the original series!) Which brings us to Zoe Saldana as Uhura. And I can’t argue with that casting one bit. Very sexy, but with an almost regal, commanding presence. That’s definitely important, ’cause Uruha didn’t just sit back in the cut and look pretty. It takes a lot of strength and brains to stand toe to toe with the men on the bridge of the Enterprise. Honestly, I can’t think of any other black female characters in sci-fi that have proven to be anywhere near as iconic. Damn, it’s only been like forty years since the original series! **facepalm**
