Many years ago, my younger brother and I attended a Star Trek convention. He was maybe 10 at the time. At one point, Nichelle was making her way around the large room after a dinner, making sure to give attention to each table. My brother was fascinated, standing up on his knees in his chair. When she got to our table, Nichelle lifted his chin with her fingers and said in that lovely voice, "You have beautiful eyes." He was absolutely mesmerized! It was adorable!
