According to Saldana, the science-fiction genre (or, at least, movies set in space) is a place where women can be fuller individuals. “I don’t have to subject myself to just being the love interest or playing a character that doesn’t feel relevant to the story or playing a woman that doesn’t feel like an actual depiction of a real woman,” she explained, adding, “When I read films in space and I’m working with these kinds of filmmakers there’s a neutral sense to the way they develop characters. It makes me feel very significant, very relevant and very excited.” —Salon

Oh, that's neat! That's how I feel about most space ladies too.

Has Saldana been in more space shows than just Star Trek? I feel like nu!Uhura wasn't given as much to do as I wished, but I'm glad she's happy.
