An icon in her historic role of USS Enterprise communications officer Lieutenant Uhura in the popular Star Trek television series, as well as the succeeding motion pictures, her character was eventually promoted to the rank of Commander.
Her Star Trek character was groundbreaking in U.S society at the time, and civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. personally praised her work on the show and asked her to remain when she was considering leaving the series.
Ms. Nichols will be appearing all three days of Emerald City Comicon.
