Re: Why so little Uhura in ST3?
I think my favorite scenes from the novelizations both involve the Project Genesis scientists- Khan's attack upon them in TWoK, and Carol's eulogies for them in TSFS. They're classic "wrong place at the wrong time" characters, and the novels elevate them beyond the brief cameos they get in the movies.
Kind of makes me wonder whether any books dealt with any of them besides Carol and David prior to the events of TWoK.
