Original Last Name She Used Edit

Did Carol Marcus use the surname Wallace originally in the movie? I thought she used the surname Wallace. If she did, it might have been an in-joke about fans speculating that either Janet Wallace or Carol Marcus were the "blonde lab technician" Kirk nearly married. (Then again, I could have had the wrong surname...) --usscantabrian (talk) 22:09, May 9, 2013 (UTC)

You are correct, she used the name "Wallace", which was her mothers maiden name IIRC. -- Cid Highwind (talk) 22:10, May 9, 2013 (UTC)

So, Cid, did you feel this was kinda a "nod" or "in joke" to the "blonde lab technician" speculation? That's what I took away from it. -- usscantabrian (talk) 22:25, May 9, 2013 (UTC)

Does anyone recall if her mother's first name was mentioned? --Alientraveller (talk) 22:27, May 9, 2013 (UTC)
No, the mother's name was not mentioned. --usscantabrian (talk) 02:39, May 10, 2013 (UTC)
Actually, I was mostly annoyed that the cheap trick of a wrong/fake name being given was not only used once, but twice, in the same movie. ;) The possibility of an in-joke is nice, but would need to be sourced before being added to the article. It definitely flew over my head. Regarding Carols mother, I believe her first name was not mentioned. -- Cid Highwind (talk) 22:30, May 9, 2013 (UTC)
I have to admit, I was like you, a bit peeved about the second fake name. The first one (Carol Marcus) was essential to the plot, so I can forgive that one! --usscantabrian (talk) 02:39, May 10, 2013 (UTC)
I added this to Janet Wallace's page too. It's speculation but Carol and Janet may have been cousins on Carol's mother's side then. --LauraCC (talk) 19:19, December 31, 2015 (UTC)

Commentary for later Edit

If you don't want any spoilers, don't read any further. For future reference, though, Carol Marcus is mentioned by Justin Lin, regarding her involvement or lack thereof in Star Trek Beyond, here: [1]
