"The Slaver Weapon" is a nice episode but, to me, it honestly feels like a generic story with our 3 characters shoehorned into the existing roles. Sulu and Uhura have more screen time but we don't really learn anything new about them either.
I don't know about the "generic" part, but it's literally true that the three Trek characters were inserted into existing roles: Spock replaced Nessus the Pierson's Puppeteer (also a central player in Ringworld and the recent Fleet of Worlds series by Niven and Edward Lerner) and Sulu & Uhura replaced Jason & Anne Marie Papandreau.
