I was actually OK with it, which is surprising because I thought it would bother me. I posted a screed against it on my Live Journal, in fact. LOL I'm eating my words, I suppose.
I actually thought it enhanced those particular scenes and I can see what Zach Quinto was saying about Uhura being used to express emotions that Spock couldn't.
I hate to admit this but in that respect, I liked it because it worked in the context of the story.
GAH! I CAN'T BELIEVE I JUST ADMITTED TO THAT.
I'm still not a fan of Spock/Uhura but I can live with it.
