Fandom: Star Trek New!
Name: Nyota Uhura
Personality: Uhura is smart, passionate and strong, fighting every battle she’s put into with verve and extreme bravery. She knows who she is and what she thinks, and she isn’t afraid to say so or do what needs to be done, even at a risk to her own safety.
History: In 2255, while at the barnear the Riverside Shipyardin Iowa, Uhura met an inebriated Jim Kirk, who began flirting with her. Although annoyed by Kirk's advances, Uhura was surprised that Kirk knew what was involved in the study of xenolinguistics. This exchange led to a bar fight as four male cadets were displeased at the attention Kirk was giving Uhura.
During her time at Starfleet Academy, Uhura specialized inxenolinguistics with tracking toward a communications officer. Commander Spock served as one of Cadet Uhura's instructors and judged her performance to be consistently exemplary.
According to her dossier at the official Star Trek movie website, Uhura originates from Africa and was the Academy aide for the advanced phonology and advanced acoustical engineering courses. She is proficient in 83% of official Federation languages and regional dialects. She was also Vice President of Starfleet Academy's Chorale Ensemble.
In 2258, Uhura was able to detect and translate a message from within Klingon territory indicating that a fleet of47 Klingon vessels around the Klingon prison planet were engaged and destroyed by an unknown Romulanship. She returned home early that night, interrupting her roommate, at the time an Orion cadet named Gaila, and Kirk, who had been under the bed when she shared the information with Gaila.
At Kirk's request, Uhura was present as communications officer during Kirk's third re-take of the Kobayashi Maru test scenario the following day. After Kirk corrects her, she calls him Captain sarcastically. At the subsequent hearing on Kirk's actions, seated in the row that Commander Spock, the programmer of the Kobayashi Maru test, had vacated and two seats over from an upset Gaila, Uhura was in attendance in the Academy assembly hall when Kirk was accused of cheating.
Spock was in charge of the starship deployment assignments for the cadets of Uhura's graduating class, and had initially assigned Lieutenant Uhura to the USS Farragut, in spite of Uhura's stated desire to serve aboard the USS Enterprise, the new flagship, in order to avoid any appearance of favoritism. Uhura confronted him about this choice, noting that she was more than qualified to serve aboard the Enterprise and that it was unfair to deny her an opportunity she would have gained had they not been romantically involved. Spock relented and assigned her to the Enterprise.
Aboard the Enterprise, Uhura was approached by Kirk, who had deduced the attack on Vulcan was Romulan in nature, following Pavel Chekov's description of an anomaly described as a "lightning storm in space" that preceded the attack on the day of his birth. She accompanied Kirk to the bridge, where she verified his claims by mentioning that she was the one who translated and intercepted the report of a similar Romulan vessel in Klingon space.
Captain Christopher Pike promoted Uhura to communications officer because Lieutenant Hawkins, the ship's prior communications officer, was not certain that he could distinguish transmissions in Romulan from transmissions in Vulcan. Uhura, by contrast, was fluent in all three Romulan dialects.
Nyota comforts Spock after the loss of Vulcan and his mother.
After Vulcan's destruction, the personal relationship between Uhura and Spock is revealed when she privately comforts Spock in the turbolift.
In an attempt to gain control of the Enterprise to implement his plan to defeat Nero, Kirk emotionally compromises Spock, causing him to relinquish command. After he leaves, Nyota steps to Kirk and tells him that she hopes he knows what he is doing. Again she calls him Captain, this time, she was hurt, but hopeful.
Before Kirk and Spock beamed to Nero's ship, Spock shared a tender goodbye kiss with Uhura, calling her by her first name, and revealing their relationship in the presence of Kirk and Montgomery Scott. Kirk, who had repeatedly attempted to learn Uhura's first name to no avail throughout the years, asked Spock if "Nyota" was her first name. Spock responded "I have no comment on the matter."
Although keeping her distance, she came to respect Kirk as captain of the Enterprise. After he gives her a command on the bridge, she turns to him smiling and answers “Aye, Captain”. This time she called him captain sincerely.(Star Trek)
A year later, Uhura accompanied Spock to Nibiru before he was rappelled from a shuttle into a volcano, to prevent it from wiping out the Nibirans. The ash damaged the shuttle and snapped the wire, forcing Uhura andSulu to leave him. Uhura swam back to the Enterprise, which was hidden underwater. She was distraught to learn ash from the volcano would prevent the Enterprise from transporting Spock back aboard, and to hear Spock explain he would prefer to die activating the cold fusion device than violate the Prime Directive. Kirk rose the Enterprise from the sea to beam him up, violating the Prime Directive but saving his life.
Nyota helps Spock suit up
Later, when the Enterprise was tasked with hunting down terrorist John Harrison, Uhura expressed to Kirk in the turbolift that she and Spock were having relationship troubles. While on a shuttle to Qo'noS where Harrison was hiding, Uhura and Spock got into an argument, where she accused of him of being too ready to sacrifice himself for a mission and not caring how she would feel if he died. Spock acknowledged that since his mother's death, he had been closing himself to such thoughts about how she would feel since he had experienced those feelings, specifically because he did care.
Suddenly the ship was attacked by Klingons. Kirk tried to lose them but they were surrounded and forced to land. Uhura counseled Captain Kirk that she be allowed to perform her role as communications officer, rather than try to fight their way out of an situation they could not win. She went out to negotiate in Klingonese, requesting their aid in finding Harrison. The Klingon she spoke to grabbed her by the throat, and pulled out a knife, prompting Spock and Kirk to go on the offensive. Uhura grabbed the Klingons knife and stabbed him with it, causing him to drop her after Harrison showed up causing a distraction. After Harrison dispatched the Klingons, surrendered himself into Kirk's custody, and was escorted to the brig, Spock and Uhura share a reconciliatory kiss.
After Harrison revealed he was Khan Noonien Singh, Spock asked Uhura to contact his older parallel universe counterpart on New Vulcan for information. Uhura managed to make contact although the ship was outside of normal range of communication with his location.
As the old Spock warned, Khan betrayed them. When the damaged Enterprisefell to Earth, Kirk reactivated the warp core to prevent it crashing, at the cost ofradiation poisoning himself. Uhura came and she, Spock and Scott wept.
Uhura encouraged Spock to beam down to execute Khan, who had crashed the Vengeance into San Francisco. However, McCoy discovered a blood transfusion from Khan could heal Kirk, so Uhura beamed down and fired several shots to stun Khan, saving Spock from having his head crushed by Khan. Spock used the opportunity to gain the advantage in the fight and was set to kill him. Uhura was able to stop Spock by informing him they need Khan alive to save Kirk. Spock then knocked him out instead and took him to sickbay.
When Kirk awoke to his friends Spock and McCoy in the hospital, he acknowledged Spock saving him whereupon McCoy reminded Kirk that he and Uhura had also helped. Almost a year later, Uhura attended amemorial presided over by a perfectly healthy Kirk, for those who died because of the conspiracy. She continued serving on the repaired Enterprise as it embarked on a five-year mission
Third Person Sample: Uhura woke with start. Everything was wrong, her fiance was not beside her and everything smelled artificial and wrong. Her eyes readjusted to the dark and she took in the room that surrounded her. Plastic, metal, a repetitively flashing light. The picture of her and Spock on the nightstand that showed how confused he was by her need for the picture.
There was a flash of angry guilt as she sat up. She no longer felt the rush of love that had come from seeing that photo, instead there was just confusion and a burning panic over Rob and Scotty. Scotty was the only person she wanted to see that she knew she had even a slight chance of seeing in that place. She rose and dragged on a robe to look for the friend she was about to confuse the hell out.
