Captain's log - should've flushed it away, the dirty
buggah!  But enough of such levity!  We gather here today
to admire the womanly charms of NICHELLE NICHOLS.
Just think - WILLIAM SHATNER got to snog her - and
was paid for it, the jammy rascal.   I'd have volunteered to
do it for nowt - even 'though I was only ten at the time.

Apparently she was going to leave the show but Martin Luther King himself persuaded her to stay as it was so important that black people be seen on TV - "a door has been opened that absolutely must not be allowed to close". It's hard to imagine Star Trek without Uhura (with her little ear-plug in) saying "there's Klingons on the starboard bow" - did she ever say that or did The Firm just make it up for their brilliant #1 hit Star Trekkin' ?

Don't know if she ever actually said it, CJ, but I've got that single.

I always yearned for yeoman Janice Rand.

I think we all did, JP. Nurse Chapel also rang my bell.
