      Star Trek’s Divine Diva: Nichelle Nichols featurette was a very nice look at the wonderful actress who brought Star Trek’s communication officer, Uhura, to life.

      One thing that has always struck me about Nichelle is how much she cared about what she was doing. She doesn’t talk about it in this feature, but there was a time when she almost left the


      show and was talked into staying by Martin Luther King, Jr.

      In this featurette, however, she talks more other things, like her character’s name. I really loved this discussion, about her name about and the history that she gave Uhura as the series progressed. There was also a neat bit about Uhura’s first name, which was actually never used on the ...


      • series but has been in books and things. She tells the story of how a writer approached Gene Roddenberry with a potential first name. He loved it, but insisted that Nichelle had to approve it. It’s just a fascinating piece of history to learn how both names were created.

        Nichelle also talked a lot about a one woman show that

        she was doing where she played so many famous black singers, such as Pearl Bailey. She actually went into the attitude of a couple of them and several pictures were shown.

        This is an interesting insight into Uhura, her name, her career, and her singing, and it’s a nice piece showing us Nichelle Nichols and her strength in bringing the character to life.
