Why not? It's about time Uhura got a little romance . . . which she never got to do on the original show.

Hell, even Chekov got more action on TOS.
Well Uhura had that brief thing with Scotty in ST5.

I wasn't ever sold on the Spock/Uhura matching either. Just too... random and forced.

It is also my least favorite aspect of nuTrek.

Spock/McCoy [TOS] is my favorite couple in all of Trek. While on the surface, it seems they cannot stand one another... in reality there is a love, also.

Sarek/Amanda is my other favorite Trek couple.

Re: Favourite Trek Couple

Riker/Troi and Paris/Torres are my favorites.

I wish Trip/T'Pol had realized its potential.

Oh, and yes I like Spock/Uhura just fine.

Re: Favourite Trek Couple

I think Star Trek did romance so badly.

I can't actually believe that people like T'Pol/Trip. He was just using her for sex. Can't anyone see this but me?
Did I miss some episode where Trip actually seemed to have some feelings for her? He dropped her as soon as there was someone better around. Poor T'Pol.

Then there was Riker. keeping Troi on the backburner all those years. At least in the end he did the right thing.

Nothing wrong with the regular sort of relationships -Keiko/OBrien or Torres/Paris (if you can stand Paris) and Sisko/Cassidy.

The best were some of the one-offs IMO. Worf/K'Ehylr, Kirk/Keeler

Re: Favourite Trek Couple

Spock/Kirk/McCoy is my favorite relationship.

But in all seriousness as a TOS fan, romance was not the series strong point but I did enjoy these one shot romances more than most

Kirk/Edith in the City on the Edge of Forever
Spock/Leila in This Side of Paradise
Spock/The Romulan Commander in The Enterprise Incident

I also do like Sarek/Amanda quite a bit

And most of these romances were written by DC Fontana...

Re: Favourite Trek Couple

Trip & T'Pol. For all ENT's strengths and weaknesses, I really think their relationship was beautifully written and acted.

Kira and Odo deserve mention and so do Sarek and Amanda.

As for nuSpock/nuUhura, I'm one more that just can't stand that pairing.

I vote for Trip/T'Pol. I love hoe Trip got all tore up inside when T'Pol had to marry that Vulcan putz to help redeem her Mom.
It wasn't that Riker got too old and fat to chase women anymore. Once Troi had to start wearing uniforms. She got hot. And the magic pixie dust from Insurrection didn't hurt.

I like to point my finger at NuSpock when watching him hugging Uhura and say "HAHA Mr. Scott is gonna nail her when he's old and fat!!"

Seriously, it's like Kirk and Spock's destiny friendship. It's inevitable in any timeline.

Re: Favourite Trek Couple

Honorable mention to Worf and Jadzia, while not my personal fav, there was a slow build up of two already established characters from attraction, to affair, to romantic relationship, to marriage.

It didn't come out of no where.

And put me in with those who can't see nuSpock and nuUhura ... I mean huh?

Re: Favourite Trek Couple

My favourite by far was Paris/Torres as it was the only one in the franchise that felt like a real relationship. It took quite a while, they had their fall-outs and they made it work. I love B'elanna as a character and I really enjoyed watching their romance grow [even if the writers did forget about it for a while]. And it has THE most romantic episode in Trek, B'elanna's 'worst day of her life' which I loved 'cause im a big softie at heart.

Others:

Riker/Troi: Meh. This is THE Ross/Rachel relationship of Trek. Almost exactly like Friends. Dragged out way too long for no reason. We all knew they would end up together as we watched 'Encounter at Farpoint' and the ball was really dropped when the writers could not make up their damn minds.

Worf/Jadzia: Great relationship and almost my favourite if it was not for the way it ended. They were cute together and It definitely worked.

T'pol/Trip: This could have been the best if they had more seasons and if they would have committed to these characters being together. i think they would have made a nice couple and it would have been fascinating to see their relationship grow and overcome hurdles like T'pol finding out she was half Romulan etc.

Picard/Beverley: Should have happened and could have been VERY interesting to see the 'controversy' within Starfleet as they got together. I'd love to have seen them overcome their guilt and get together.

Sisko/Cassidy: This worked and was typically realistic. I think because of the simplicity of their relationship [and end of DS9] it was not my favourite.

Odo/Kira: Was fun, romantic...but awkaward.
