I know I'm a bit late in posting this for MLK day,but I figured it was relavent nontheless.....
It's a little excerpt from a documentary where Nichelle Nichols,AKA the Original Uhura,talks about how Martin Luther King emplored her to stay on TOS,and in doing so,admits he's a Trek fan!!!!
Gotta love it!!! If They start selling the Odyssey Class Starships,I'm naming mine after MLK!!!!

It's a great bit of history and I think it speaks to how ground-breaking some of the ideals and concepts of Star Trek were when the show was first on the air. And how important that diversity was.
