Stephanie York




I was 18 when Star Trek began. I loved the multi-national–and multi-planetary–nature of the show. People of all kinds exploring together! I especially loved Lt. Uhura- so beautiful, intelligent, dignified and feminine! Don’t forget her work in the Star Trek movies. Or her romance with Scotty. Later I was impressed to hear of her work with NASA– encouraging everyone to use their skills to advance space exploration! Nichelle Nichols is truly a cultural icon. I will never forget her.
