Not as hot as say, Carol Marcus,
But if you turn the lights down
low, Gillian Taylor is yet another
scientist of Jim's, who might just
be what the doctor ordered.


She's the one that got away.
The only one who's ever left
Kirk speechless. And the only
one who left him, without his
getting lucky, beforehand. Am
I missing something, I mean,
What IS it about this woman
that makes her so special?


Help me understand ...

She needed to be girled-up, more, certainly.

 


The attraction seems not to have been "mutual,"
however. I think she just played along, to ...
well ... she was using Kirk as a crutch, really.
She was desperate to Save The Whales,
yet powerless to do so. The stress demanded
she need a crutch. But Kirk took it too seriously,
himself being in Mid-Life Crisis ... apparently.

For instance:
Notice how Shatner, during the
"whales weep not" scene, actually
gazes down at her chest for a couple
seconds, causing her to cross her arms.

I think she's "cute" and a little mischevious (kind of like Vash), but she was never really a favorite.

That being said, I think she's pretty cool. I'd date her (if I were single)!

I AM KEE-ROCK!!

You know, now that I look on her again,
if you put a couple Rum & Cokes down me,
it would be off with that jacket and up
with her heels ...

She's the one that got away? Seriously?


It's like people are just so weirded out that Kirk hasn't gotten any action or shown any interest in women for three movies and fourteen years that they have to fabricate a romance with the first person with breasts save his ex that he has any real screentime with.


Anybody remember how desparately Kirk tried to get Spock to go on their "date"?


Does anyone remember the epic fail of his attempt to romance her for information at dinner because she'd bring up his "ditzy friend" and he'd get all sadfaced?


I think any minimal flirting that Kirk did with Gillian was because #1 it's his personality #2 he was depressed about emotionally-distant Spock, and #3 she was funny and nice to them.


Honestly, their whole interaction looks like Gillian thought of Jim as her new gay buddy.

I was thinking she was flattered but Kirk was weird to her because he was walking in Calif, plus he was with a guy in a dress when she met him.


Kirk had the mission on his priority list.


When they got to the Present her future she ditched him.


Had he not been in a rush to save Earth he would have scored.

In a deleted scene from TVH
 
Kirk: You want me to save your whales?
 
 Gillian: You can do that.
 
Kirk: Step into this room.
 
They go and and close the door.
Scuffling is heard. Spock moves over to the door to listen.
 
Spock: Captain?
 
Kirk:Ahhh
 
 Gillian; Ohhh, mmmm
 
Kirk: Oh...yeah
 
 Gillian: Yeah
 
Kirk: Ohhhh yeah...
 
Spock: Captain? Are you able to respond?
 
Kirk: yes, Yes...YES!
 
 Gillian: Ohh, ahhh, OHHH!!!
 
Silence.
 
Spock looks at the door, then it opens.
 
Kirk; Excuse me...walks pass Spock.
 
Gillian: Ahh, errr...

Agreed, actually.

I think that Jillian is an amazing woman. She is strong and independent. She is a doer. The only thing she relies on Kirk for is hitching a ride to the future with the whales. Plus I think she is one of the few women to shun Kirk's advances.

Beershark ... ? toranaprem ... ?


Are we really going to do this, gentlemen:
debate the relative attractiveness of Carol Marcus
and Gillian Taylor? Neither of whom has very much
hype about them, in all honestly. But it's interesting
how far down the food chain that the pecking order goes.
I must say, that's something.


Bibi Besch was deliberately made dowdy for the role,
seeing how Carol Marcus was BOTH a scientist AND a mother.
A mother of a grown man, by the way. Gillian Taylor could
and should have been tarted up more, herself. But she was
only mother to orphaned whales, so she has the edge, I guess.
