I was never a Trekkie. I’ve seen the movies, and I enjoyed them, but I never got sucked in. I’ve seen about 10 TV episodes ever, across all franchises and times. Recently however, my wife and I got Season 1, Disc 1 from Netflix, and I found some interesting things.
The latest Star Trek movie is a historical re-write. Uhura is in love with Spock, yet in previous movies there’d been some indication she and Scotty were an item. Spock spends some quality time as the captain of the Enterprise, rather than Kirk.
In the very first episode ever broadcast, it starts out with Spock at the helm, captaining the Enterprise. While sitting in that chair, Uhura flirts outrageously with him.
