Nichelle Nichols Returns to the Convention Circuit

Nichelle Nichols

You can’t keep the Queen of Star Trek down.

Another one of my very favourite Star Trek news sites is 1701News, run by Michael Hinman who owns Airlock Alpha and the Nexus Media Group.

I’ve been a fan of Michael’s for quite a while, ever since I stumbled across his SyFy website before the SyFy Channel purchased the name and he re-branded it as Airlock Alpha.  Michael is the sort of writer who engages me, and often challenges me because sometimes I agree with everything he says, and then at other times I want to crawl into my computer and slap him.  I love his insights and I really enjoy his writing style.

His great Star Trek news site is reporting that the beautiful and inspirational Nichelle Nichols is back on the convention circuit after the minor stroke she suffered early in June this year.

For my part, it’s wonderful to see Nichelle back in action.  Uhura holds a special place in my heart.  It was Uhura who attracted me to Star Trek and had me give it a chance when I was a child who – at that time – was a huge fan of the original Battlestar Galactica and a devotee of Star Wars.

Welcome back, Nichelle.  82 years young and going strong.
