Star Trek Beyond Clip Gets Us Up To Date On The Spock/Uhura Relationship

One of the biggest surprises of the new Star Trek films (recently dubbed the “Kelvin” series of movies since it takes place in an alternate universe than the previous Star Trek incarnations) was the revelation of the Spock/Uhura relationship. While it makes sense that these two characters would potentially pursue a relationship in a different timeline, technically Spock and Uhura were actually supposed to lock lips a lot sooner in the original series–until William Shatner had something to say about it. When you look at it that way, a Spock/Uhura pairing really isn’t that out-of-place.

The two characters have been quietly pursuing something in the background of the last two Star Trek films–it’s not the focal point of the movies, but it works because Quinto and Saldana have such great chemistry (even if they are Lip Sync Battle rivals).

In this recently revealed clip, however, Spock and Uhura appear to be in… kind of a rough place, and it turns out that Bones has some well-timed advice for the Vulcan in the aftermath. If you don’t want spoilers, I’d recommend not watching the below–although it does have some great Spock/Bones interaction:

Star Trek Beyond is scheduled for a U.S. release on July 22.
