I Am Not Okay

...but I will be.

While I am so very grateful this character is getting a second chance on TV, I'm still frustrated that Nichelle Nichols, a woman of incomparable grace and beauty, never got to portray Uhura to her full potential. For over a half a century, Nichols and her fans were horribly robbed.

This does not lessen her legacy, of course. She will ALWAYS be the trailblazer, the symbol, and the inspiration. She will always be the original babe of Star Trek. And she will always have deserved so much better.

Rest now, goddess.
