I had the great privilege of meeting Nichelle twice at the Star Trek convention in Las Vegas. She was beautiful inside & out, and showered each and every person she met with such love & joy. Watching the original Star Trek as a child, I recall how her character made an indelible impression upon me. The world has lost an extraordinary woman who blazed trails and changed our world for the better. Rest among the stars, our Lt. Uhura. You will never be forgotten.
