this is quite possibly my favorite blooper EVER because I can 100% see Uhura wanting to dance with her man and playing him like a fiddle to make it happen. Let’s be honest there’s not much he would or could deny her.
“Nyota if I’m not mistaken this is one of your favorite songs.”
“as per usual you’re right,” She smiled at him. “you know what I would like even more; if you would dance with me.”
“Nyota I doubt that would be appropriate," the tips his ears flushed green like they always did when he felt embarrassed "particularly with so many of our fellow crew members present.”
“Well maybe I can convince you in a way you’ll understand,” Uhura laces her fingers in his. “Ok how’s this Don’t think of it as dancing infront of people and embarrassing yourself. Think of it as an exercise in compatibility."
"would you elaborate in that please?” he inclined his head curiously.
“when you dance being compatible with your partner is crucial.” she knew she had this one in the bag once a logical argument was presented the end result was almost guaranteed. “You have to trust the one your with and move together within the confines of the music. so the question Mr. Spock is do you trust me?"
"Implicitly,” Spock nodded rising from his chairs at their table and extend his hand in offering. “May I have the honor this dance Ms. Uhura?”
“of course you may,” she accepted and allowed herself to be lead to the only truly open space on the Mess deck.
They didn’t touch at first the tune was set to a Vulcan lyre so the dance was almost a waltz as they mirrored each other moving in a tight circle. “we appear to be attracting attention,” he was most certainly right every eye present was on them and nearly all chatter had died away. “should we stop?”
“nah lets just finish the song,” she whispered so only Spock could hear her. “just act like no one else is around and keep your eyes on me.”
“that is most definitely a feat I can manage,” he placed his hand at her wait waist drawing her close using his other hand to capture hers. when asked
what he was doing he quietly replied. “Deviating I’m trusting you and also the music.” at a particularly long chord he increased the distance between then spinning her and then renewing their positions
when the song ended there forehead were intimately touching and the deck erupted in applause after which they left the deck to the turbo-lift. “thank you.” she placed a soft kiss on his lips. “admit it you enjoyed it.”
“I found it exceedingly pleasing yes.” the corners of his mouth twitched to the Spock equivalent of a smile “you and I appear evenly matched and compatible for the exercise.”
“As well as others commander,” it was a start at least. “as well as others.”
#and not a logical thought was had for the rest of the night
