Lieutenant Uhura Visits the White House…


Nichelle Nichols (who looks great at age 81) visits Star Trek fan Barack Obama in the White House (photo submitted to Facebook by her co-actor George Takei).

Here’s a comment that told me something I didn’t realize:

Anthony Curi (on Facebook) made this comment:

Towards the end of the first season, she became jaded after being written into the background and nearly left the show. However, a letter from one particular viewer changed her mind.

“I am the biggest trekkie there is, and I am Lt. Uhura‘s most ardent fan.”
