Uhura's got a Gun

Heres the Enterprise code cracker, Uhura, doesn't she look hot enough to fire up your warp engines? The odds are encouraging that Enterprise hailing frequencies go down in J.J. Abrams Star Trek sequel. The yellow hue from the mystery deflector dish tells us something about Uhura's proximity to darkness in this exact location.  Specializing in xenolinguistics, Uhura grabs the top Communications job in Pikes ship (2009) when the guy with the ears tries to sideline her to the USS Farragut. Nyota tells Spock where to get off.

UHURA: Commander, a word.
SPOCK: Yes, Lieutenant?
UHURA: Was I not one of your top students?
SPOCK: Indeed you were.
UHURA: And did I not, on multiple occassions, demonstrate exceptional aural sensitivity, and I quote, "an unparalleled ability to identify sonic anomalies in subspace transmission tests?"
SPOCK: Consistently, yes.
UHURA: And while you were well aware that of own qualified desires to serve on the USS Enterprise, I'm assigned to the Farragut?
SPOCK: It was an attempt to avoid the appearance of favoritism.
UHURA: No, I'm assigned to the Enterprise. (Spock presses some buttons on his PADD)
SPOCK: Yes, I believe you are.
UHURA: Thank you.

Later we see these two kissing each other in the turbo lift. Funny how Uhura kept her first name quiet for so long but I guess Nyota likes to play mind games. I've been doing a little digging on our Communications Officer and it gets better. Uhura is proficient in a whopping 83% of official Federation languages and regional dialects and becomes Vice President of starfleet academy's Chorale Ensemble which is like pretty interstellar amazing.

Here in the photoshoot is Uhura crouched, holding a phaser on the set of Star Trek Into Darkness with the plot unfolding just a little. Interesting I'd say because, 'John Harrison' swoops down and engages in mortal combat with the hooded mysterious entity. Now who could this be I wonder, eh? In the same spot, it would appear Nyota is lying in wait for something..... Cumberbatch's evil entity? Its Red Alert, Could this be pay back time? Uhura looks like a predator ready to exact retribution but for what......for SPOCK???? We still don't know if Spock makes it out of the volcano. John Harrison vs Uhura hmm... So I ask you... How will Uhura get John Harrison to repent for his evil ways?....Does she really have what it takes to pull the trigger?

Explore long and Prosper, Trekkies and Trekkers!

She's a woman with a gun - are you kidding? Don't want to be on the receiving end of a woman scorned.

These movies have done a great job of legitimizing the Uhura character. Nichelle Nichols did an admiral job for what she was given, and her presence alone was groundbreaking, but her version never really amounted to anything. In one movie Zoe Saldana changed all that. And in two she looks to completely shatter the mold. Good stuff.

It's nice to see Uhura take center stage in the action. She was underused in the last movie.

Its cool seeing nuUhura hanging tough with the big guns when the action gets dicey.
