I am pleased that a lot of your posts identify as embarrassing the way that Uhura or the other female officers were written. I really want to identify with Uhura, because she strikes me as being a 22nd century equivalent of a ham radio buff, but so many weird things were written in.
I don't know if you are aware of Uhura's portrayal in the Animated Series (TAS) but in case you are not, I'm confident, you'd like it.

Even when McCoy said it looked like love, I was completely oblivious to any sort of gendered suggestion for the alien. I was so stupid to think even for a second that the writers would have included an entity that arcane. Either they couldn't or they wouldn't, if you know what I mean.
Well, it was the 1960's and the general notion had been that women cared and cooked for their husbands.
