For nearly 30 years Nichelle Nichols has been part of the "Star Trek" myth as Lieutenant Uhura, Communications Officer on the "Starship Enterprise". In this autobiography she recounts her personal and professional life. Granddaughter of a former slave-owner and raised in a socially progressive family, Nichols charts her career from its beginnings as nightclub and stage performer to film and theatre actress. It contains revelations about her relationship with "Star Trek" creator Gene Roddenbury, her father's involvement with the Mob, and her fight against racism, sexism and an attempted rape.
