Rest in peace, Uhura

As a huge fan of the original Star Trek series, I was saddened to learn of the passing of Nichelle Nichols, the original Lt. Uhura.

This woman was a pioneering actress is so many ways. Rest in peace, Uhura.


  1. She was amazing! Thanks for putting this up. I didn't know about this till I saw it here! I always have thought how much better the show would have been if they had used her and the other minor characters more. They did this in the first few episodes and they were, by and large, the best of the series. There was always this very interesting dynamic at play in the hand full of scenes she did with Leonard Nimoy. It would have been wonderful to have seen more of that.

  2. Oh no! I didn't hear about this. Loved the series and her character.
