If there's one constant in the Universe ... it's Dirty Old Sods!
Picard looks great in the monster maroons...... god, did the TNG uniforms suck IMO.
I don't view the supporting characters as extra baggage, particularly the only woman and only black person from the main cast. One of the criticisms levelled at TMP is often that it's too sterile with not enough personal interaction between the cast. There is a sweet spot.
I'm also fine with older people getting some action . IDIC and all that. If I want to watch young and thin people getting on, I can watch porn.
In real life all Sir Patrick's lady friends and ex wives are decades younger than himself.
Soldier on, then ...
And they say that "money can't buy you love"!
People who are anti old people getting some action I pray their dick falls off or their little feline dries up once they pass 39. I bet such folks are NOT a size 10 and age 25 forever.
Well, I think it had the potential to fun, Old Uhura and Scotty seem like the couple who's house I'd wanna visit just for the banter....
Oh no stop it.
I don't want to think about it.
Anyway I reckoned there'd be about 30 years between Saavik and Spock.
A problem I have with Scotty and Uhura is the bad writing for their "romance". It could have been written by Lucas himself it was that bad. Or perhaps by the writers of the T'Pol/Trip romance.
And the acting. I don't think any of the regulars were taking the script seriously except for the big 3. I think it was Doohan's worst performance.
If they'd done it properly, respectfully, perhaps with a bit of background I think everyone would have been happy regardless of their age.
Never had an issue with the idea, just came out of nowhere, never came to any kind of fruition, never had a basis in any other film and on top of that was never explored or hinted at again for the remaining film.
So it made the whole thing kinda pointless.
The "economy" of the scene where their "romance" is introduced makes it all so flat and uninteresting. They're both conveniently on the bridge at the same time, then -- out of the blue -- Uhura just starts pawing him. She also happens to have brought a bag of chips with her and kept it around as Scotty's "dinner" ... HA!!! A bag of Lay's potato chips -- how's that "dinner" especially to this Man? When Scotty considers dinner, a flock of Free Roam Chickens in the hold of the ship holds vigil.
