Space: the final frontier.

In color!

"Ably assisted"? (Team Spock, here. Boston represent!)

Can you spot the discrepancy here?

Will never not be creepy...

One of my favorite parts of this series is its cultural diversity. I recognize that pikkewyntjie posted the Ebony cover with Nichelle Nichols a couple months ago, but I really wish I could have gotten to it first!

A most fascinating source.

I've always loved that story! :) Dr. King understood that even though Nichelle wasn't one of the stars that her presence on the bridge as Chief of Communications was important. Not only did she get to be very cool and dangerous in the Mirror, Mirror episode, but she was shown doing technical work on her console and Spock complimenting her on her abilities! LOL!

Any woman who could be kick-ass in a mini-skirty and thigh-high boots is tops in my book! ;)
Well, Dr. King was certainly right. Whoopi Goldberg and astronaut Mae Jamison are just two examples of African-American girls who were inspired by Uhura. Inspiring a young girl to pursue a career in science and go into space? Now that kicks ass! Uhura is an inspiration to girls of all races. You can be super smart, have a great career, and, if you want, look damn fine while doing it!
