Actually, if you look back to the old Space Navy model, the com officer is not an anomaly. "Sparks" the radio operator was a regular part of every crew. Part of his job was keeping the equipment in working order. Now, you're not going to see Uhura doing that in Classic Trek, not in a miniskirt you're not. But I never thought of Uhura as anything but a high-tech, sophisticated Sparks. With a degree in linguistics, obviously.
