    Nichelle Nichols was a very nice and sweet person that i had the honor to be her security and escort back at M.O.C. in 1989.
    My deepest and sincerest condolences to her family.

That's totally awesome to hear you actually met her.

I remember reading an article that she was going to quit Star Trek. But it was Martin Luther King that convinced her how important her role as the first African American on primetime TV would serve as a beacon of hope to a future of racial harmony. They backed it up by showing the first interracial kiss between Nichols and William Shatner in 1968.

Star Trek was one of my favorite shows growing up and I loved that she played an instrumental part in many of the episodes. She will be missed but never forgotten!!!
