The Birthday Celebration to be Held at La Piazza Restaurant at The Grove in

Los Angeles With VIP Fan Packages to Join Ms. Nichols for

 Her Birthday Dinner, Photo-ops, Autographs, and a Meet & Greet

 

Los Angeles, CA (December 5, 2017) - Legendary Icon, Nichelle Nichols will celebrate her 85th Birthday on Thursday, December 28, 2017.  A favorite actress of fans worldwide, and a trailblazer for women to be considered for substantial positions in the aerospace industry through NASA, she also opened the doors for many women, as a whole, and especially women of color for acting roles of a significant position versus simply a housewife, maid or secretary.  

 

Ms. Nichols, who is a frequent guest at conventions and events across the globe, travels extensively and enjoys meeting the fans.  Private, intimate birthday parties are usually the norm for Nichols, who decided to include 35 lucky fans in on the festivities this year to mark the milestone birthday. VIP packages which include dinner, birthday cake, and a champagne toast, plus a Meet & Greet, autographs, and photos with the birthday girl, are available to ultimate fans.  The birthday dinner party will be held at La Piazza Restaurant at The Grove in Los Angeles, announced Gilbert Bell, of GB Entertainment, Ms. Nichols' manager.

"Nichelle Nichols has a special relationship with her fans, one of mutual admiration and respect.  Many of them stop by every year to say hi when she's in their town at an event or convention.  I knew that for her 85th Birthday, we wanted to do something fun and special for Nichelle and her fans, and the idea for the VIP Fan Meet & Greet packages, which includes dinner at her birthday party, sounded like a unique way to include some lucky fans in the celebration," said Bell.

Star Trek at 50: Lieutenant Uhura teleports into London

From the BBC: Read the article here: 

"As kisses go, it is neither romantic nor explicit. There are some who argue - among them, on occasion, William Shatner - that the lips never touched. Watching it now, the scene seems chaste, almost to the point of self-parody.

And yet, the clinch between Lieutenant Uhura and Captain Kirk in the 1968 in the Star Trek episode Plato’s Stepchildren has become a historic moment in television, even though its claim to be the first interracial kiss on US network TV has been much disputed. (In fact, it may not even be the first interracial kiss by William Shatner on American television).

For Nichelle Nichols, who played Uhura, the kiss has taken on a life of its own, though the act itself was apparently unremarkable.

"It wasn’t a big deal", she says, “because it was scripted. Other shows had similar things, but because it was us doing it, it became a big thing.”

In the original script, Nichols recalls, the Vulcan Mr Spock was supposed to kiss Uhura. But, “Bill Shatner said, ’If anybody’s gonna kiss Nichelle, it’s gonna be me!’ Oh hell, yeah! But you just have to see my family to know that it was not a big deal. It was not a big deal for me.”
