Now Star Trek’s Uhura wants to double down on that relationship in the sequel, along with Uhura getting "physical." Details (and video interview) below, plus more photos of Zoe from Cannes.
Saldana wants the Spock/Uhura hookup
In an interview with Empire Online from Cannes, Star Trek’s Zoe Saldana didn’t have any news about the Star Trek sequel, but she did offer her thoughts on what she wants to see:

Note: some sites have noted Saldana’s mention of Romulans, but it is very unlikely that she has revealed a spoiler as none of the actors have been given any script draft (which is still being worked on). Meanwhile here is the video of from Cannes where she talks Star Trek and Avatar sequels (via Empire Online)
