Welcome to spock_uhura, your first Live Journal source for everything Spock/Uhura from the Star Trek series. The community is focused on both the Original Series and films and the new film released in 2009. Join and watch the community to have access to all the posts. This community aims to be a friendly place for Fans of Color (FOC); if you have race issues, latent or otherwise, this is not the place for you. We have had new members join Live Journal just for us (!). If you are new to Live Journal we recommend taking a look at the official FAQ. Be sure to read the community rules before posting and commenting, and again welcome!

spock_uhura is devoted to the development and discussion of Spock and Uhura as individuals and together; with regards to the importance of their roles in Trek, their cultural identities, and the characteristics that make them mesh. Our ongoing mission is to interact with the rest of Trek fandom without malice; to produce high quality fanwork; to have fun boldly going where the network feared to go in the 1960's.
