That's your interpretation. And it's a valid one -- but so is the interpretation of Orci and Kurtzman that it's perfectly possible that the two were in a relationship.

My point was, that relationship wasn't some crazy thing they threw in there out of nowhere -- there's evidence in TOS to support the notion, primarily in "Charlie X" and "The Man Trap."
So it's valid to say that every time two or more TOS characters treated each other with respect, professionalism, or camaraderie, they were in a more intimate relationship? That's ridiculous.

This conversation reminds me of RL conversations with people who insist there is no way that adult men and women can be friends without sex being involved. Sometimes a friend is just a friend.

EDIT: I call BS on the bolded part. If they honestly think Original Spock and Uhura were in a relationship on TOS, they must never have seen "Amok Time." Spock was so embarrassed about the topic of sex, he could barely bring himself to tell Kirk about it, never mind anyone else (don't bring up Droxine; that scene never made any sense at all). And there was no flirting or anything else between Spock and Uhura after "Amok Time" so I don't see any evidence whatsoever that they went past casual friends.
I don't think anyone was saying they were in a relationship. They were just saying that the interactions we saw in those scenes were flirtatious enough that them being in a relationship in an alternate universe isn't a totally ridiculous idea. At least that was how I read it.
You got it right. Where they? Probably not. Could they have been? Sure. The foundation was there in TOS, it's plausible and it works.
