This compilation truly captures Nichols’ trailblazing portrayal of Lieutenant Nyota Uhura, a role that inspired many and will continue to do so for many generations to come.

This was a sad day for Star Trek fans, due to the passing of the legendary Nichelle Nichols, who played Uhura in classic Trek. In tribute, please enjoy this compilation of memorable Uhura moments from The Original Series, The Animated Series, and the first six Star Trek films.
