Happy Birthday Nichelle Nichols



Nichelle Nichols is famous for playing Star Trek's Lieutenant Uhura on the starship USS Enterprise NCC 1701. Today our Star of Freedom celebrates her 81st birthday. Doesn't she look awesome! Broadcast throughout the galaxy on our tv's, our beloved Communications Officer always kept the Enterprise's hailing frequencies open, alerting the bridgecrew keeping them safe from danger. Correctly establishing incoming and outgoing communications was so crucial for making first contact with alien worlds. Remember how Uhura distracted Sulu in Mirror, Mirror?

So deep within the hearts and minds of Star Trek fans,

Happy Birthday Nichelle

It must be said, too, that in her day she was smoking hot, and so that probably helped make her so prominent in the series even though she basically had a completely nonexistent role.

For a while Nichelle Nichols felt like that too. Martin Luther King convinced her to stay on the show. Nichelle served as a beacon of light infecting people across the galaxy everywhere.

Yes, she was rather hot.
Looks pretty good for her age. She and Shatner have aged well.

Speaking of hot, lets not forget the famous Shatner-Nichols' kiss which for many folks was seen as 'mixing the races'. Forced by alien telepathy, Captain Kirk gets Uhura in the end as one southerner puts it 'he ain't gonna fight it'.

When you watch the original Kirk-Uhura kiss Alex, ask yourself why the tv networks never actually show 'kissing' lips making first contact! Did their lips touch?

Forty years later, Nichelle Nichols is on Shatners comedy roast and jokes "Let's make TV history again ... and you can kiss my black ass!"

Nichelle was very good, and I truly like her replacement in the new movies.

I really enjoyed her role in the series. And she WAS pretty hot.

She's done more than any other minority actress on television.

Now that is awesome. Btw (no spam), you won an Amazon card from me. Email me the address you'd like me to send funds to. Congratulations! :)

She could sing, as well! And who can forget her nude fan dance in the desert in that forgettable movie with Spock's half brother? I forgot the title of the movie, but remember that scene.
