Re: Who likes Spock/Uhura too?

I believe that the proper response to any Spock-related change in canon from Star Trek XI is:

Spock? SPOCK! Spock, what have you done?! You've changed the future! You've created a TIME PARADOX!
... Ahem.

Anyway, yeah, not sure the flirty stuff in 'Mantrap' was supposed to signify anything deeper, but I think the pairing works. It did come as a bit of a surprise the first time around, but Spock and Uhura definitely make for a good couple - similar enough in terms of implied intellectual ability and shared interests not to be baseless, but dissimilar enough to be complementary (the emotional/stoic thing).
Steadfast as a weathered mighty stone,
Weary of this furious raging storm,
Defy, and resist the endless war.
Withstand, and uphold the sacred law!

Bring forth your gods, your sacred strife:
With truth I crush your wretched life!

- Forefather
