And by "Real," you mean the other fake one.
I mean the one that continues as normal and wasn't created by a freak incident in the future/past. Some may refer to it as the Prime Universe, for me I prefer to see it as the Real one.
Normal. New "normals" are created everyday. Even still, both "realities" are works of fiction, and therefore fake, but I understand what you are saying.

That remains to be seen. I give them another film, two at the very very most before it all comes crashing down.
Or before they get married. That's my hope.

Well they're the next best thing to it. As for Uhura, she does wear a skirt does she not? They could have introduced/used and female character for the same result (Chapel, Rand, Helen Noel, Carol Marcus, etc).
I think you know what I mean. You weren't just talking about clothes. "Skirt," in the way that you used the term, is typically used in a derogatory way by sexists, but you can always claim you didn't know that.

Seduction aside, it is highly inappropriate for such a relationship. Even more so now they are on the same ship.

Spock wasn't giving out the ship postings. But rather than take it up with the officer who was doping so, she goes right to her lover and has a hissy fit until she gets her way (there is a further comment I'd like to make here, but some may find it offensive so I'll hold my tongue).
How do you know that Spock wasn't in charge of the assignments. It sure looked that way to me. That's why he was able to change Uhura's assignment because she'd earned it. Seems like she went to the right person to me. I don't think their relationship on the ship (or before) is inappropriate, so long as there are certain guidelines in place.

I am aware of that, Vulcans have emotions but they choose to suppress them and follow a path of logic. Yes they will occassionally encounter an event that will be too much for them to handle and emotions will break through, but even when with a mate they show great reserve and control.
Have you been in every Vulcan bedroom? You don't know that. For all we know, as soon as that door closes, some of these Vulcans can be, and are, downright as passionate as any human. And besides, for what Spock went through, I think he showed a heck of a lot more self-control and reserve than anyone else (see: the humans) would have.

But that's not all they could think of. They also thought of making her a xenolinguistics specialist, and I imagine that will come into play with this next film.
Which was never expressed in TOS, but as I previously stated, is an easy assumption to make. Just because something is not stated, doesn't make it impossible to believe that it is so in Trek (which is why, until stated otherwise on screen, I will always believe that Andorians have four genders), such as comm officers being language experts.
You just made my point for me. Who's to say Spock Prime didn't harbor a secret life-long love for Prime Uhura, and that's why he urged young Spock to do what "feels right."

And when it comes to this Spock? Chapel who???
Chapel could whoop Nu-Uhura's ass, and sweep Spock off his feet. Between Zoe Saldana and Majel Barrett, I know who I'd go for (if I swung that way that is).
Ooookay? First, I find it interesting that even when Uhura is not even mentioned, you find a way to attack her. Second, I think you're getting your realities mixed up. I said this Spock, meaning the one played by Zachary. IIRC, In the 2009 movie, Bones says something in the medical area of the ship to a "Nurse Chapel" who is off camera. She's never seen, so again, Chapel who? I highly doubt that Ms. Majel Barrett, rest her soul, came back from the dead and/or de-aged 40 or so years just to play a character in the 2009 film that we never saw. She did, however, live long enough to give the 2009 film her blessing (I think JJ mentioned it in the commentary).

In matters of the heart and mind, it's not always about what they eyes can see. Isn't that what Star Trek's supposed to be about, at least in part? Both women are attractive, and Zoe is naturally on the thin side. You can tell by her bone structure.

And yes I would say Majel Barrett is overall more attractive than zoe saldana...zoe could be just as attractive as Majel if she gained a couple of pounds.
I find that she is far too scrawny to be attractive.

To me, Nu-Uhura really comes off as being a bit of a bitch, add that to Nu-Spock's anger issues and it doesn't exactly spell a long and happy future together.
I don't see where was she was a "bitch" exactly (and that's another derogatory term, you know). Anger issues? Okay, well, just tell me how you would feel if all of your family and everyone you knew were killed and your home was destroyed all in the same day with one crazy guy from another universe to blame for it? I think a little anger is allowed here.
MA'AM. Hot damn, I can dig it.
