One more question about TUC...When Uhura and crew were trying to speak in Klingon, shouldn't they have Klingon translation computers onboard the Enterprise by now, rather than thumbing through actual hardbound books?
Nichelle Nichols raised this very point with Nick Meyer, but he insisted they play the scene as filmed because he thought it would be funnier.

For more info consult her book "Beyond Uhura".
I'd have to spend thirty cents on it and I'm just not comfortable making that kind of investment for Nichelle Nichols life story.
