seriously though is no one going to talk about the fucking shitstorm carol marcus went through in stid

first she finds out that not only does her dad want to start a huge-ass intergalactic war, but he is willing to destroy anything and anyone that gets in his way to achieving it

and then he beams her over so that she is forced to watch helplessly as he goes to destroy thousands of innocent lives

and then khan brutally breaks her leg

and crushes her father’s skull in his hands

right next to her 

WHY IS NO ONE TALKING ABOUT CAROL MARCUS

and despite all of this she is totally proactive – she tricks her way onto the enterprise. she disarms a missile, refuses rescue when it means certain death for a man she’s literally just met, even with a broken leg she barely complains beyond the initial (and totally justified) scream, completely shuts down kirk when he doesn’t listen to her

basically what i’m saying is that everyone should be talking about carol marcus
