August 6, 2022: Remembering Nichelle Nichols

Nichelle Nichols

An actress. A singer. A dancer. A role model. A trailblazer. Nichelle Nichols was all these and so much more. Her time on Star Trek helped change television and societal norms, while her tireless work off-screen helped push those boundaries ever further. She worked directly with NASA to help diversify recruits to the astronaut program and she personally inspired countless young women to pursue careers in science.
Intelligent, bold, and unafraid to fight for progress, she upheld the ideals of the Federation both on-screen and off. As we salute her accomplishments in life, we commit her memory to history and her future to the stars.
