I think I would have liked it more if Uhura didn't seem so weak and prissy. She was slightly more tough in TOS...for example, like I said in another thread, her thing with Spock in the elevator. Like making Vulcan love in the turbolift would help forget the loss of his people, eh? Seemed to be all she was good for, besides standing by with a helpless look when Kirk got beat up.
And the whole snarky retort when Kirk became acting captain was way too teenager-like. When you have a new captain you suck it up and take it.
Haha in all honesty, when she said "..captain" I was like, You goin' be working for that man along time, beeyotch! Get used to it!
