To Boldly Go: Nichelle Nichols Sits Down with MuggleNet at Wizard World Des Moines!
We here are MuggleNet are people of many fandoms. That’s why when given the amazing opportunity to interview one of the biggest legends alive right now, it was impossible to turn it down!
I am a relatively new Trekkie, having watched the rebooted films with my husband only a few short years ago and falling in love. It was shortly after that that I decided to give The Original Series a try. I never stood a chance. I was suddenly spending my days binge-watching a show made far before I was born, but I loved it all the same. My favorite character, of course, was Lieutenant Uhura, played by the incredible Nichelle Nichols.
One thing I learned about Nichelle in the few short minutes I spent with her is that she has an unwavering sense of humor and optimism. Her answers to my questions really showed me who she is as a person. But don’t just take my word for it. Check out the interview below!
It’s really hard to put into words what it was like to be in the presence of someone as legendary as Nichelle Nichols, and I was honestly so honored to have been given the opportunity. I’ll just end by saying this:
Live long and prosper, Nichelle. You are everything I hoped you would be and more!
