Star Trek's Nichelle Nichols Talks Trek With Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson On StarTalk Radio

Star Trek's Nichelle Nichols Talks Trek With Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson On StarTalk Radio

Back in January at the Women of SciFi convention in Plano, TX., we overheard Nichelle Nichols mention an upcoming interview with famed astrophysicist Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson. It seems that the most recent episode of the Dr's StarTalk Radio show features our favorite chief communications officer. In the first part of a two part series, Nichelle recounts her time on Star Trek and how her role as Uhura impacted her life and society "over space and time." The second half of the interview will air tomorrow (July 17th) at 6pm ET. You can catch the broadcast on the radio (stations listed below) or streaming via the interwebs here, plus a podcast version is available via iTunes here.

Show synopsis:
Some might know Nichelle Nichols best from Star Trek, but this actress, singer, dancer and space advocate has much to say beyond her role in TV's exploration of the final frontier. In this exclusive interview, she talks about how science fiction and Star Trek—and specifically her ground-breaking role as Chief Communications Officer Lt. Uhura—not only impacted her life, but also had an influence on society over space and time.
