In an amazing set of photos from the Desilu studios set of the original Star Trek, Nichelle Nichols (" Lieutenant Uhura") epitomizes grace, athleticism and poise.
I met Nichols once, at an event at the Science Fiction Museum in Seattle, and I was so star-struck that I told her how much I admired her rendition of the little-known lyrics to the Star Wars theme, meaning Star Trek. She was incredibly gracious as I turned purple and stammered out an apology.
