I liked the plot, it felt like a synthesis of Nu-Trek and old Trek done with a little grace. I didn't really need so much time spent making Uhura awkward, it felt really forced at a point. The solution being music really felt light-hearted enough to be in Star Trek proper.
I'm really on the fence with this show, I'm hoping they Tasha Yar the chief of security pretty soon and even out the bridge.
