Nyota Uhura

Notes

Name : Nyota Uhura1
Species : Humans
Associated with : Star Trek XI

Career

Uhura was a starfleet Cadet in 2255 when she encountered the young James T. Kirk in a bar near the Starfleet shipyards in Iowa. She resisted Kirk's amorous advances, leading to a bar fight when some other cadets came to her aid.1

Uhura was one of the Academy's top students, with an exceptional aural sensitivity and "an unparalleled ability to identify sonic anomalies in subspace transmission tests." She specialised in xenolinguistics, and was proficient in all three major Romulan dialects.1

Uhura was part of the crew who took the Kobayashi Maru test with Kirk for the third time, and was duly surprised when he defeated the "no win" scenario.1

In 2258 Uhura detected a distress call from Klingon space stating that 47 Klingon vessels had been destroyed by a single massive Romulan ship. When the Nero crisis arose shortly afterwards Kirk used this information to predict that the natural disaster apparently overtaking Vulcan was in fact a Romulan attack. Uhura was assigned to the USS Farragut by Commander Spock, but complained that her performance at the academy merited her assignment to the USS Enterprise. Spock agreed and Uhura served on the ship throughout the crisis.1

On the Enterprise Captain Pike had Uhura relieve his communications officer due to her superior language skills. She remained in the post throughout the crisis, and became Captain Kirk's chief communications officer when he subsequently assumed command.1

Relationships

Uhura was involved in a romantic relationship with Commander Spock during her time at the academy, which continued during their time aboard the Enterprise. Her roommate and friend was Gaila, an Orion Cadet.1
