Favorite canon pairing?

Kirk/Enterprise.

Duh.

What else would it be? :)

As for any "this doesn't count as canon!" accusations, well [personal profile] selenak elaborates on this better than I ever could, but in short: the Enterprise is the object of Kirk's romantic energies. He has many emotionally serious affairs with women, yes. He has an intense and deep friendship with Spock, yes. But the Enterprise, for him, is not only 1) transcendence, consuming his identity and doing so in a way that gives his life purpose and meaning, but in addition, 2) he himself, as well as his colleagues, as well as the events of the universe (as in Elaan of Troyius), explicitly describe his relationship with his ship as a romance. The first one alone has nothing to do with romance per se. And the second one alone would be more of a joke than anything. But put the two together, and, well, as far as I'm concerned the only human/vehicle pairing more canon than this one is Doctor/TARDIS.

Spock & Nurse Chapel.TOS. I felt her pain. The one kiss they had was forced by aliens. She held his hand when he was unconscious. And when she found out he was "Married", she almost jumped ship. Poor, poor, long suffering Christine.

I was never much of a fan of Spock/Christine, but they were definitely a popular pairing, for all the reasons you list :)
