I wonder if when you stab a Klingon in the balls his whole family vows revenge upon you and yours or if it's just so embarrassing that they forgo honour in favour of face.
They go nuts. Or at least a bit teste.

They're making a bit of headway with Uhura.
Perhaps they can make Carol out to be the great scientist she was in TWOK.
For me this is the problem; Uhura in particular does some brave things but (to me) they came across as secondary, partly because she's a secondary character and partly because her relationship to Spock got more emphasis. For me to call her a heroine that'd have to be her primary function in the movie.

No really, like the sack of Rome. That's how bad it is.

If you do heroic things, you are a hero/heroine.

THIS!

I mean if people are asking about in general sense of a heroine IE Lara Croft or something like that? Then no, but that is just Trek. Janeway is as close as you come, but as far as TOS goes the NUhura has done nearly more in two movies than Nichelle got in three seasons and six movies.
