The best part of this page is the subtle cues in the first panel. Female Spock tries to protect Uhura in the same way male Spock does, thus implying that in the gender-swap world, Spock and Uhura’s roles are not reversed in a way they might be in a more sexist comic. Instead, we get to see female Spock do exactly what male Spock does, showing that being a leader and person of action are not traits reserved for one gender. It’s great, quiet storytelling that happens and is over in a flash but is nonetheless appreciated. - Best Sequential Art Ever (This Week)
+1 bonus (aka Uhura saving Spock’s ass from the other comics)
…because Spock is the princess and Uhura his knight in shining armor ;)

Entropy chapter 2 - end scene rewrite
I thought long and hard about it, but I just didn’t like the last scene of the second chapter where Nyota goes to Spock’s quarters. So I’ve rewritten it. You may want to go and read. The tone is a little different, and Spock and Uhura talk a little more about recent events. There’s also less of a sexy overtone, because I felt they needed some time to grow back together and trust each other before all that happens again. Anyway, I am SO much happier now that I’ve done this, because it was niggling at me.
Rewritten scene under the cut or read the whole chapter here. The rest is exactly the same.
Reblog this if you ship Spock x Uhura
"You seem like ideal casting for Uhura, but did J.J. ever actually reveal what he saw in you that prompted him cast you for the role?
Saldana: Not directly. I had auditioned for J.J. for a couple of projects before, and he had expressed to my team that he really liked my approach to acting and my decisions that I’d played and that he’d love to work with me in the future. So when Star Trek came around, he very much expressed that he wanted to meet me for it. And when I did walk in the room, he was very vocal, like, “I’m so happy you came in. Thank you very much for reading for us.” Little by little, that same afternoon, after I saw him, they made the offer. They were like, “We want you, and you’ve been the first choice since a while back. Please do it.” I was so humbled by it.””

I had originally uploaded these for the folks at Original Trilogy forum. Figured it was about time to share them now that the links have hit the wilds of Tumblr.
