Remember that strange scene in Star Trek Into Darkness featuring Alice Eve? Despite internet hate, she’s proud of that moment.

Star Trek once promised to boldly go where no man has gone before. But Alice Eve knows science fiction can go much further by foregrounding women within its strange new worlds. ‘A lot of women in sci-fi are self-sufficient,’ says the actress, who played one such character — Dr. Carol Marcus — in 2013’s Star Trek Into Darkness, though not without controversy.”
