Lt. Uhura role broke stereotypes about Black women, featured iconic interracial kiss with co-star William Shatner
"Her role in the 1966-69 series as Lt. Uhura earned Nichols a lifelong position of honour with the series' rabid fans, known as Trekkers and Trekkies. It also earned her accolades for breaking stereotypes that had limited Black women to acting roles as servants and included an interracial onscreen kiss with co-star William Shatner that was unheard of at the time." Nichelle Nichols, trail-blazing Star Trek actress, dead at 89
