Honestly surprised I hadn't faved this yet, great job on Uhura! Gotta love those classic uniforms >;3
We seriously need another Star Trek series on TV, besides Doctor Who, Game of Thrones, & The Walking Dead there aren't that many solid sci-fi/fantasy style shows out there these days, I find myself looking back to the past more often to find the really good stuff, like Blakes 7 (which I'm almost done with, loved seasons 1-3, just started series 4), Land of the Lost (Sleestaks vs Silurians man, someday that has to happen lol), and Lost in Space, OH THE PAIN, THE PAIN OF IT ALL!...How much ya wanna bet Doctor Smith saw into the future at some point and THAT's the real reason he was always complaining? HE KNEW STAR TREK ENTERPRISE WAS COMING FOR US! lol
Well, in the meantime, I got my legendary & toho kaiju films to look forward to & anime/manga to tide me over until someone starts doing more sci-fi shows again lol
I always wish they had went ahead with the show they had planned instead of Enterprise. (blech!) It was going to have Ryker as captain, partolling a UN stlye warzone, but at the same time, dealing with new races and threats to the Alpha quandrant. It sounded good. But they switched instead to that farce that got canned mid-series, which in itself is a disgrace to a ST show...
Those were the bad days!
I think the time is right for a new ST show, but NOT a prequel, based on the Nolan films. We need to take it a century past Picard and show a new cast and a new situation.
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 )
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!"
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.
