Captain Uhura should have been a thing
I have a headcanon that Admiral Uhura lived to a ripe old age as the Starfleet Director of Intelligence. And she would have fought and undermined Section 31 long before it was safe to acknowledge its existence. She taught regular symposiums (and not just at the Academy) on universal translators and how despite the technology, you still needed to have living polyglot translators for the hard stuff.
She was Picard’s Seminar in Translator Algorithms professor for about three classes and advised him to just take Klingon to get the required xenolinguistics credit out of the way. He did, but he still sat in on her class.
She also played in the Vulcan equivalent of a jam band and had a quiet off and on Thing with Spock that McCoy adamantly did not want to hear about.
