or going on an away mission
If we're going to go ahead and have a "re-set" of Star Trek, can we please lose the terms "away mission" and "away team." Thank you.
The nuUhura can be transferred to being a general bridge officer. There were times where prime Uhura was away from her switch board, she was at navigation and on a few landing parties. Nothing says that Abrams can't move people around. As stated above, the actresses star is on the rise, TPTB would be foolish to ignore this. McCoy could be reduced to a couple of cameo appearances to make room for more Uhura time, the movie is only so long and time must be allocated for the all important lens flares too.
