Re: Who likes Spock/Uhura too?

Okay here we have FLIRTATION followed by a conflict in which Spock essentially says what he said in ST:XI.

"My demonstration of concern will not change what's happened."

"If crew morale is better served by my roaming the halls weeping, I will gladly defer to your medical expertise."

Only in ST:XI he's young, and given to sarcasm. By the TOS era he's lost all patience with this kind of human demands and he's curt and to the point.

Re: Who likes Spock/Uhura too?

I think Spock and Uhura is fine. Good for them.

I strongly suspect one's gonna be rushing off the save the other in the next movie (the first batch of spy pics seem to confirm it) and whoever it is is gonna get told off by Kirk for disobeying orders etc etc then get the "...but I would have done the same thing." *meaningful look* at the end of the scene.

By the way.... you're not a true Spock/Uhura fan unless you have the official Star Trek Spock/Uhura Mr. Potato Head set!!

And by that they will mean "I would have done the same thing for Kirk/Spock" right?

I voted "Not my preference, but I don’t mind them together" because it was the closest to my opinion...

basically i couldn't really care... together or not together, it doesn't make a difference to me... as long as the writers do a good job of it, i couldn't care if Spock was making passes at Janice Rand lol

Talk about a small world...I live in Kent UK at the moment. Hopefully we will one day have a Trek convention there.

I am betting on them breaking up next film. For some dramatic and high minded reason. I would have speculated that they will kill off Uhura but since she was the only woman left after they offed Gaila (presumably) and Amanda and dropped Winona they can't really do that. She is their only woman left, though I presume there will be more in ST:XII.

That will be sexist and since trek is suppose to represent the future that would never happen. However every great fantasy/sci-fi series needs a female to ride with the guys. Hermione, Ewoyn, Princess Leia just to name a few.



Even dragon ball z which is a very masculine show had a lead female character that was very feminine. It will just suck if trek was all about kirk/bones/spock and if every female character are just there to be killed off.

a legitimate reason for uhura’s death will be that she is the only one wearing red.

And the Charlie X scene where Spock can be ambiguous right back.

Oh I quite agree. There was already a testosterone imbalance in ST:XI, which this video addresses:

Those are so adorable. I saw them when they first came out, and I just think it's great. You're better than me, then, because I don't have them. I was thinking about it, though...

EDIT: And now I think I still am thinking about it.

Re: Who likes Spock/Uhura too?

Uhura is an extremely smart and attractive woman (both versions) so why wouldn't Spock be attracted? Liking Human women is in his genes.

By then clearly it will have been logical for Spock to have moved on to a younger woman?
