Re: Uhura replacing McCoy/Bones?

As far as wasting valuable seconds on emotional hoopla, yea, that's a common trope. Anytime you watch a movie where a psycho is down and their weapon is out of their hand, the heroes will sit there embracing, instead of grabbing the weapon and running, or finishing the psycho off. Or a storm or Nuclear weapon is coming, and the hero is almost to safety, and stops for hugs and meaningful glances, etc. Or Enterprise NX-01 having time to stop off at Risa and the episode Northstar when they're on such a time critical mission.

The list goes on and on for this kind of stuff, it happens in just about every movie or TV show in one way or another
