Re: Was Uhura a linguist?

Not exactly, at least not the way I read the scene. The "recognize the UT" was that the Klingons would recognize that a computer is talking to them, i.e. translating English to Klingon. Whether Uhura was reading from books or a computer screen, she's still talking directly to the Klingons in their language, and not through the UT.
