I grew up my whole life watching her character. I am a trekky. I always remembered her character on the shows and movies. She was a enigmatic persona. I think she added so much depth of caring to the crew, a mysterious flavor as well. I also think on the inside she was very beautiful as it showed on the outside so eloquent. She was such a huge pioneer for black women's rights to excell. I dont think I thought of that at age 5 tho when I first started watching the enterprise. Go boldly!
