With the introduction of the Spock/Uhura romance, Orci and Kurtzman have created two characters who, depending on where we focus our attention, are flawed (how minorly or majorly is up to interpretation). From Spock's side: He's either weak-willed or a...well, what would you call someone who bends to the wishes of their lover? Their STUDENT lover? Who reassigns someone during a crisis situation to his own ship? Something not too good if we're being unbiased here. From Uhura's side: She's basically....well, again, what would you call a woman who uses her sex to get what she wants? Demanding the Enterprise assignment from her lover is hardly professional. Quite...unsavory, actually. PLEASE only thoughtful responses. If you think I'm wrong, elaborate on your viewpoint in intelligent, well-worded prose. Or if you agree, be mature as there is potential for insulting language about either character. Personally, it's more damning of Spock to be compromised like this. Consider. He's having a relationship with a student of his. He assigned/reassigned her based on his own feelings.
