Paramount+ has announced plans to honor the late Nichelle Nichols as part of their upcoming Star Trek Day. The event will feature a “special video to honor the impact and influence” of Nichols, who played communications officer Lt. Nyota Uhura in the original Star Trek series, a role that broke barriers including the first interracial kiss on television with costar William Shatner.
