Lieutenant Uhura by curtsibling Lieutenant Uhura by curtsibling
I'm not really what you could call a "Trekker"...Although, the original show was great!

I've always wanted to draw the hottie comms officer , Lt. Uhura....
And the recent Star Trek anniversary gave me an excuse!

never seen the original series but I did a little reading on her- 
she was pretty much the first black lady in a TV show like that and the fact that star-trek got the first interracial kiss on any show just lets you know how awesome the whole thing is,

(even if they were under the influence of aliens;) (Wink) )

Even Martin Luther King encouraged her to stay in the show when she considered leaving.

I think she was a simply spectacular beauty, and also a step forward for characters in SF.

Yep it was a big step, star trek made me want to make my own SciFi
- have to admit that I preferre stuff like star trek because its not a space opera- most of those things are just EastEnders in space ;-)

True story: the week after the infamous Kirk/Uhura smooch episode aired, Gene Rodenberry pulled Nichelle Nichols aside on the set and showed her a letter he had recieved from a southern televangelist preacher. The letter declared "I do not approve of a mixing of the races-but when a man gets his hands on a woman who looks like that he does what comes natural!"

I recall reading this one years back and I thought it was a cool example of a woman's beauty over-coming petty bigotry.

Also a true story: Nichelle Nichols credits her role as Uhura with giving her what she considers to be the greatest moment of her life. While attending a particular public function she was told that a fan wanted to meet her, so she turned around-and came face to face with Dr. Martin Luther King.
