Remember when the Star Trek writers were shocked that fan reaction to Data's death was so negative? They said something like "oh but he died saving his friends, that's a good ending!" and they said something similar about Kirk.
I feel like that's a fundamental misunderstanding of what about Star Trek appeals to people. That sort of ending might be satisfying in a series like Star Wars, which is more about the big narrative and the sweeping epic stories.
But Star Trek is more about the day to day things. Watching Spock and Data in particular go through their every day lives while being different. Watching them relate to people, fall in love, learn, ect. is so deeply appealing because we see ourselves in them, as people who feel (and perhaps are) different. The narrative desire is not for a spectacular ending, it's for an ending that we can imagine for ourselves. What does my future look like, as a gay woman? Is there happiness for me, as a mixed race person? Can I carve out a place for myself in this universe? I don't aspire to die saving someone I love. I suppose I would, given the choice. But I am much more interested in the complexities and difficulties of living for people I love.
It doesn't have to be an uncomplicated happily ever after. My favorite ending of all time is Frodo's. He is changed and he lives, and survives, and there is happiness and there is sadness too. And in the end he goes west, and it's quiet, and it's what we all do.

this is Kirk's "wait you're married to your science officer? you can do that?" look and I accept no argument, you can see the little cogs going round in his brain

Okay, hear me out. Holo technology can simulate all kinds of sensory input. It can do sight, sound, touch, even smell and taste, but also, it can simulate internal senses. You can go kayaking and hang-gliding, and it feels real. So if we accept this... imagine a Supermario holo-program. You jump on Goombas, you punch bricks, you collect coins and turn into a flying squirrel.
Also, please imagine Bashir and O’Brien on their way to the holosuites, only Bashir is wearing dungarees and a very bad fake moustache and O’Brien is wearing a strange spherical hat with spots on it...

So i noticed that whenever spock is in command in tos he makes sure to encourage the crew with words and to reassure them of their importance.
In Who Mourns For Adonais when uhura has to fix the communications panel he tells her "I can imagine noone, better equipped to handle this, miss uhura."
At first i thought it was a subtle way to show spock and uhura's friendship, especially bc he calls her "miss uhura" and not "lieutenant", which he usually does.
And while i still think that is partially true, he does that same thing in The Tholian Web. When chekov and uhura are released from sickbay and he comes to the bridge he says "I am glad your back" and "your presence has been missed" (or something to those words) to them.
He obviously cares about the enterprise crew and always seems to make sure they hear how important they are. My guess is that he took a psychology class back at the academy but I also believe he knows how it feels like to believe you are never enough due to his half human status on vulcan and his alien status in starfleet. He never wants the people under him to feel like that so he tells them whenever he can. It also helps keep the crew morale up.
That being said, i think spock's love language is words of affirmation
