I mean the one that continues as normal and wasn't created by a freak incident in the future/past. Some may refer to it as the Prime Universe, for me I prefer to see it as the Real one. The trio is a far more important relationship to the franchise that needs to be nutured and developed, seeing how three men of different backgrounds come together to form a friendship that would last for decades to come. More screen time needs to be given to matter such as that rather than a love story (or if they do want to go that root, then they should really shake things up and have Kirk and Spock finally get together). That remains to be seen. I give them another film, two at the very very most before it all comes crashing down. Well the Alternate Universe has given us a new relationship, her "new" linguistics skills, not to mention altering baseline facts from the Real one (for example Chekov's age), so anything is possible with a massive reboot. I'm just saying is all. Well they're the next best thing to it. As for Uhura, she does wear a skirt does she not? They could have introduced/used and female character for the same result (Chapel, Rand, Helen Noel, Carol Marcus, etc). Seduction aside, it is highly inappropriate for such a relationship. Even more so now they are on the same ship. Spock wasn't giving out the ship postings. But rather than take it up with the officer who was doping so, she goes right to her lover and has a hissy fit until she gets her way (there is a further comment I'd like to make here, but some may find it offensive so I'll hold my tongue). That's not a scene I remember from the film, but will keep an eye out for such a display next time I watch it. I am aware of that, Vulcans have emotions but they choose to suppress them and follow a path of logic. Yes they will occassionally encounter an event that will be too much for them to handle and emotions will break through, but even when with a mate they show great reserve and control. Which was never expressed in TOS, but as I previously stated, is an easy assumption to make. Just because something is not stated, doesn't make it impossible to believe that it is so in Trek (which is why, until stated otherwise on screen, I will always believe that Andorians have four genders), such as comm officers being language experts. Chapel could whoop Nu-Uhura's ass, and sweep Spock off his feet. Between Zoe Saldana and Majel Barrett, I know who I'd go for (if I swung that way that is).
