Re: Who likes Spock/Uhura too?

"You know what's funny, though? I don't know if it was a shipper war or not. The people that claimed that Spock couldn't, just couldn't, be with Uhura were very hard about it absolutely just having to be Kirk/Spock/McCoy as a friendship pairing that was dubbed "The Triumvirate." They went into all kinds of stuff about id, ego, and super-ego and how they needed each other and had to be together and never have any women in their lives or a family." (By S/U Fan)

I've come across these types as well. I love "the Triumvirate" as much as the next person, and I do want to see more of McCoy in the next movie...but not at the exclusion of everything else.

I tried to point out that everyone has their own id, ego, and superego and we all work towards healthy work relationships, friendships, and romantic relationships (usually without any of the relationships suffering too much). If these 3 men were operating without this ability they weren't particularly well rounded individuals and probably shouldn't be working in a stressful environment like Starfleet. But none of them even acknowledged the point!

So, don't worry about them and continue to enjoy your own thing S/U Fan!
