1 August 2022
American actor Nichelle Nichols, perhaps best known for her role as Lieutenant Uhura, the communications officer of the USS Enterprise, in the original Star Trek TV series and later movies, died aged 89 over the weekend.
Star Trek fans doubtless have many favourite Uhura moments and lines, but this isn’t reality, this is fantasy, from The Search for Spock, the third Star Trek film starring the original cast, has to be up there with the best of them. See also this IMDb photo gallery honouring Nichols’ life and work.
