Could there be romance in space?
Captain Kirk is known as the ladies man on the Starship Enterprise, but is it possible his First Officer might be better relationship material? As Zoe Saldana sees it -- from Uhura's point of view, that's the case.
"After doing research and going to fan sites and reading up on them, I realized that Spock and Uhura have more in common in terms of their attraction than any other characters in the script." Saldana explains. " She's an spt pupil. She wants to t be the best at what she does and all of a sudden, here is this mentor that is a of a sudden, a couple years older than she is, he's witty, he's sexy, he has pointy ears, he's sexy, he always knows every answer."
Yep, Kirk is the sexy second banana to his Vulcan buddy in this "Trek" world. Talk about an alternate reality...
