I don't think Uhura could fit that prominent role. I've been stating this a lot before, but they should put another female character/crewmember on the Enterprise
. Yeah it might disrupt the ensemble, but hey, if they can blow up Vulcan, etc., why not? I'm thinking someone along the line of security chief / weapons officer, with rank of lieutenant commander or above, and wears trousers on duty (NO
mini-dress for her. You can keep the minis on Uhura and the background women, fine!). JJ Abrams, how about Anna Torv for this role? Huh? You listening?
