Communications officer Lieutenant Uhura (Nichelle Nichols) not only could translate the language of thousands of different alien dialects, she also wore the most wonderful shortest skirts in the universe. Well she did have the most delectable thighs for it. And she drove this young wolf cub wild!
But wait before I turn this into my teenage fantasy and a dribble-fest reminisce. Please let me reassure you that not only was Uhura an important part of the USS Enterprise with her incredible skill set of linguistics, cryptography, and philology. This sexy black woman, Nyota Uhura, kicked ass. Breaking down prejudices in the backwards world of the 60s as part of the fantastic multicultural Star Trek crew. The future was here at last and she was just wonderful.
Not content with being one of the first African ladies to appear as a major part of television and directly a role model to millions. She also gets credited for one of the earliest, especially on mainstream US TV, interracial kisses. That iconic moment Uruha and Captain James T Kirk (William Shatner) got to embrace for a smooch on the 1968 episode “Plato’s Stepchildren“. Yeah the story might of forced them to do it but we all know these two had hidden desire trying to burst it’s way out.
There was one slight odd thing to Uhura which everyone onboard had noted but wouldn’t dare bring it up. An each to their own, kind of thing. When she left to have some down time on the holodeck she’d always return to the same time? 1974 Los Angeles, California. Going by the name Dorinda, she loved nothing more than relaxing, pimping out her harem of girls and being chased down by bounty hunter Trunk Turner!
Before she had join the USS Enterprise she’d danced her way through musical theatre. Was a singer, a dancer and all round entertainer. Here she is looking dynamite modeling some crazy thigh high boots and well, just hanging out doing lounge stuff. Meow.
Later on Uhura would take on a few different forms, one as an animated seventies version of herself and another as Zoe Saldana.
Well I wasn’t the only guy who’s heart was sent a flutter with those walnut crushing thighs and those drop dead gorgeous eyes. One President Barack Obama also had a crush on Uhura.
Not only that, she’d received a message from Martin Luther King Jr after she had thought about leaving the Star Trek series after the first season, telling her.
“You are our image of where we’re going, you’re 300 years from now, and that means that’s where we are and it takes place now. Keep doing what you’re doing, you are our inspiration.”
“Don’t you understand for the first time we’re seen as we should be seen. You don’t have a black role. You have an equal role!”
The rest they say is history and Lieutenant Nichelle Uhura Nichols has received her coveted Wolfman’s Hot Ladies Of Sci-Fi Award.
