Nichelle Nichols began her professional singing and dancing career in her home town, Chicago, at the tender age of 14. As a teenager she was discovered by the great Duke Ellington, who hired her to choreograph and perform a ballet for one of his musical suites, and finished the tour as his lead singer. Nichelle has performed in the U.S., Canada, and Europe, including guest artist with Lionel Hampton’s band.When Nichelle was cast by Gene Roddenberry to create Chief Communications Officer Lt. Uhura, fourth in command of the Starship Enterprise, in his legendary TV series Star Trek – in the words of Dr. Martin Luther King – it became “The first non-stereotypical role portrayed by a black woman in television history.” Nichelle subsequently co-starred in six blockbuster Star Trek motion pictures and is still in constant demand to appear before millions of “Trekkers” who keep the dream alive around the world.Among her many notable TV and film credits, she co-starred with Cuba Gooding Jr. and James Coburn in the Disney motion picture Snow Dogs, with Ron Perlman and Daniel Riordan in the TV film Captain Zoom in Outer Space, and with Maxwell Caulfield and Levar Burton in the Sandy Howard film The Supernaturals, as well as singing and dancing with Sammy Davis Jr. in Porgy and Bess. Nichelle also co-starred on the NBC blockbuster television series “Heroes” as Micah’s grandmother Nana in the New Orleans storyline during Season 2.Nichelle’s recent work in several independent features has allowed her to portray other challenging and varied characters. Among them, This Bitter Earth with Billy Dee Williams and Richard Roundtree, Tru Loved, co-starring with Jasmine Guy, The Torturer, a powerful three-character film/play that examines the psychological effect of our presence in Iraq, and Lady Magdelene’s, in which Nichelle both starred and Executive Produced. Lady Magdalene’s also showcases Nichelle’s talent as a singer and songwriter with two of her original compositions being used in the film.She was twice nominated for the coveted Sarah Siddons Award for Best Actress for her performances in the theatre productions of Jenet’s The Blacks and the Oscar Brown Jr. musical Kicks and Company. She starred in the touring Broadway hits, Horowitz and Mrs. Washington, and Nunsense II. In her one-woman show, Reflections, she “becomes” twelve legendary female entertainers, using her beautiful three-octave vocal range to rave reviews.Nichelle was guest soloist with the Erie Pennsylvania Philharmonic Orchestra for their 80th Anniversary Celebration as well as the solo artist with the Symphony Orchestra of the California State University-Northridge, where she previously was commencement speaker for their School of Arts.Nichelle was awarded her much deserved star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on January 9, 1992. Just a few weeks before she became the first African-American to place her handprints and signature in the cement walk at the famous Mann’s (Grauman’s) Chinese Theatre along with her other command crew members of the Starship Enterprise who were also honored in a special exhibit at the Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum in Washington DC, an unprecedented accolade for the entertainment industry.Nichelle’s autobiography “Beyond Uhura”; her first sci-fi novel “Saturn’s Child”; and it’s sequel “Saturna’s Quest” received critical acclaim. Nichelle was conferred a Doctor of Arts, honoris causa, from Marywood College on their 80th anniversary at which she delivered the commencement address. In July 2002 she was inducted as an Honorary Member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority.Nichelle’s public service activities have been equally outstanding. In 1977 and 1978, under contract to NASA, Nichelle took on the daunting task to successfully recruit the first women and minority astronauts for the Space Shuttle Program, for which she received NASA’s distinguished Public Service Award for her pioneering efforts. She supports astronaut Dr. Mae Jemison’s youth foundation The Earth We Share and continues as a member of the Board of Governors of the National Space Society.In 2004 Nichelle was selected as one of the International Human Rights Consortium’s Fete d’Excellence Laureates. The commendation reads: “You have been selected for the Medaille d’Excellence 2004 in the category of ‘Edutainment.’ This is in recognition of your being a true innovator, a woman of courage and commitment to the deepest values of excellence through your artistry within the world of entertainment and also as an innovative educator and patron to learning and inspiring the budding minds and hearts of youth.”NASA and Nichelle are once again working together. Their focus is on President Obama’s STEM Initiative which encourages America’s youth to pursue studies in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math as the US once again takes leadership in the advancement and exploration of space. At the behest of NASA Nichelle now travels to NASA Aames Research Center in California, Johnson Space Center in Houston TX, Cape Canaveral in Florida, NASA Headquarters in Washington DC and other youth oriented programs in support of STEM education and the space program. Partnering with Nichelle in these efforts is Ivor Dawson, the Founder of the Traveling Space Museum.In addition to her work with NASA Nichelle is currently working with filmmaker Gilbert Bell on his new film project Omaha Street. Omaha Street will be shot with Nichelle serving in the dual role of Executive Producer and co-star.To communicate with Nichelle:.Twitter: @RealNichelleFacebook: Nichelle Nichols Communication PageWebsite: www.Uhura.com

"...The Legion is an all-volunteer organization formed for the express purpose of bringing together costume enthusiasts under a collective identity within which to operate. The Legion seeks to promote interest in Star Wars through the building and wearing of quality costumes, and to facilitate the use of these costumes for Star Wars-related events as well as contributions to the local community through costumed charity and volunteer work..." To Promote Interest in Star Wars While a growing number of people areexperiencing a reawakening of their Star Wars fandom, new generations are seeking ways to celebrate their passion for George Lucas's modern mythology. The 501st Legion brings these fanstogether, reinforcing the enduring longevity of the Star Wars saga. To Facilitate the Use of Costumes Some fans are content to collect action figures...other fans want to be action figures. Nothing professes your passion quite like building your own detailed costume replica of a classic Star Wars villain, and there's nothing quite like the feeling that comes from bringing the characters of Star Warsinto the real world and sharing the magic with others.
