Bones, to Kirk and Spock: Did you two shower together?
Kirk/Spock: [together] No!
Uhura, to Bones: Double negative – it’s a yes.

Kirk: Joe came down with ligma, updog
Bones: What’s ligma?
Uhura: Who’s Joe?
Spock: What is updog?
Kirk *internally*: My entire life has been spent leading up to this moment

Bones: Jim, why the hell, of all people, do you have a crush on the hobgoblin?
Kirk: Who the fuck told you that?
Scotty: …
Kirk: SCOTTY
Scotty: I didn’t know it was some big secret!
Kirk: oh it wasn’t a big secret
Kirk: JUST LIKE THE TATTOO OF THE ENTERPRISE YOU GOT ON YOUR ASS NOT BEING A BIG SECRET
Sulu: YOU HAVE A WHAT?
Uhura: Scotty????
Chekov: LET ME SEE LET ME SEE
Scotty: Mr. Chekov isn’t really from Russia, he’s been faking it the whole time!
Scotty: If I’m going down, I’m taking everybody with me
Sulu: Pavel, why would you lie about something like that?
Chekov: I don’t know, why do you own lingerie?
Uhura: Oh my fucking god
Sulu: UHURA WROTE AN EROTIC NOVEL
Chapel: Nyota Uhura, you dirty hoe!
Uhura: Christine has the biggest daddy kink!!!!
Chapel: Nyota, I told you that in confidence!!!
Bones: I can’t believe the best damn nurse on this ship has a daddy kink…
Chapel: LEONARD ONCE HAD A WET DREAM ABOUT MR. BEAN
Bones: I ONCE SAW SPOCK CRY BECAUSE JIM WASN’T PAYING ATTENTION TO HIM
Kirk: this is so chaotic im losing my mind what is wrong with this ship

kirk: this seems… heterosexual

Scotty: Hey guys, I just heard about this amazing lecture on Warp Core mechanics, who’s in?
Uhura: Sorry, I’m ummmm… I don’t know, washing my hair.
Sulu: Running the water.
Kirk: Holding the towel.
Chekov: I’ll be home trying to get over the fact that no one invited me to the big hair washing party.

FRIENDLY REMINDER THAT UHURA IS A GODDAMN ENGINEER, WHICH IS WHY SHE WEARS RED. SHE IS THE COMMS OFFICER BECAUSE SHE KNOWS HOW TO WORK THE EQUIVALENT OF THE SHIP’S HAM RADIO—THAT’S TECHNICAL WORK. SHE IS NOT KIRK’S SPACE SECRETARY.

And she speaks a bunch of languages and she’s so smart that when she lost her memory of everything, she learned it all again really quickly (with nurse chapel which was so cute)

Honey got skills and she’s a genius 

And she knows how to play the Vulcan lyre too!

This must have been very important at the time (and still is). Not only is Uhura shown to be highly competent but Spock also clarifies his trust in her skills. He’s basically telling a 60’s audience to check their prejudice about her abilities at the door.
