President Obama gives new meaning to the phrase “to the stars”

It’s official: the President of the United States is a Star Trek fan and has a thing for Uhura. Clearly there’s a wider audience for this site than I anticipated.

Nichelle Nichols, who portrayed the strong and beautiful Lt. Uhura on Star Trek, is a wonderful woman. I’ve seen her in person many times and her stories from the past – television’s first interracial kiss with William Shatner, speaking to Martin Luther King, attending the first Space Shutle launch - are always worth listening to.

And what fanboy didn’t have a crush on her growing up watching Trek re-runs? Barak Obama and myself (and Sulu) weren’t the only ones. Below are photographic examples of her range of talent, from the sophisticated to the sexy. Cheers, Nichelle!
