Today, thanks for ComingSoon.net, we can shed some light onto Alice Eve's character in J.J. Abrams' sequel. While talking to some of the talent from the highly anticipated sequel, the site revealed that Eve's character is **SPOILER ALERT**
The character was portrayed by Bibi Besch in Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan and was a Federation scientist whose work led to the top-secret "Project Genesis." She had a relationship with James T. Kirk and became the mother to his son, David. The couple ultimately decided that it was best for her to raise the boy alone.
We'll have to wait until this Friday's nine minute preview attached to IMAX screenings of The Hobbit, before we can get a better idea of how closely Star Trek into Darkness mirrors the original film series. The fact that Bad Robot Productions nonchalantly revealed Eve's role leads us to believe that it's not a major spoiler.
Star Trek into Darkness opens May 17, 2013.
