The whole Spock/Uhura love affair was just bizarre. Granted this movie is an alternate reality version of Star Trek (given you can have an old Spock and a young Spock living in the same universe together) but Spock and Uhura? C'mon guys.
The roots of Spock/Uhura are in TOS. The old ways are best.
Nah. There's one scene I can think of in which Uhura teases Spock for being a Vulcan by being flirtatious. I don't see that as any different than McCoy's prodding/attempts to break Spock's stoicism.
The real romantic 'roots' in TOS are between Spock and Nurse Chapel. And it's explicit.
And yet, it was expressly forbidden, due to his nature, which was ignored in this film.
