Honestly, love them. It was such a nice surprise and I like how the writers pulled it off in the movie. Why not? Everyone I know said "finally!" to Spock getting an actual love interest. It makes sense, he's half human, hell even vulcans can love and can love humans (he's the result of it). I always liked their chemistry in the show, I thought that he had a soft spot for her and he was the only one from the crew to whom the original Uhura has showed some actual interest in the original series unlike, to say, grandpaScotty/grandmaUhura that were only hinted in star trek V and it came out from nowhere (*and she was under the influence of Syboc anyway. I hate that movie and the treatment of her character.) That said, the Spock/Uhura relationship is new to this reality and makes more sense here (eg. he was her teacher and she worked with him as his TA before they started to work aboard the enterprise. In the prime universe they had met each other many years later so here they got the chance to actually get close that they didn't get the other time) I think that they make sense as I can easily see why Uhura would be attracted by him and understand him better than other people and why Spock would fall for a woman like her that is a mix of logic (similar to his "vulcanity") and emotion (that his human side may long for). They have more in common than any other character in the movie and it seemed that they really cared about each other.
