Vicky Crosby




I watched Star Trek on its opening nite, and as a girl I was stunned to see a woman on the bridge of a starship. She was beautiful, graceful, brave and competent. I adored her. She was my role model as I went on to college and majored in Biology with a minor in Chemistry. I later specialized in Marine Science at a time when few women were doing so. I also nearly ended up working for Project Viking for NASA. Last year my bday presented from hubby was an autographed photo of Nichelle as Uhura.
