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.
Photos of my hobbit costume :P we were very busy that day, didn’t have much time to get any pics at all XD but hey that’s what it looked like basically! At least I’ve fixed the wig hehe
since I’m 18 now I had to call the hospital myself to get test results and I was simply planning on saying that I had a blood test last week and if I could get the results back but when the woman answered I said “I want my blood back” and hung up the phone, so I’m never trying that again
