Trivia

Nichelle is the only original Star Trek series cast member never to reprise their role on any of the spin-off series or movies.

Nichelle is 5' 5" (1.65 m) tall.

Fed up with the racist harassment, culminating with her learning that the studio was withholding her fan mail, Nichelle submitted her resignation. She withdrew it when Martin Luther King personally convinced her that her role was too important.

Former NASA astronaut Dr. Mae Jemison was inspired by Nichelle when she decided to become the first African American female astronaut. Jemison was a fan of the original Star Trek (1966).

Comedian Whoopi Goldberg lists Nichelle as a huge influence on her deciding to pursue a career in the entertainment industry.

From the late 1970's until sometime in the late 1980's, Nichelle was employed by NASA and was in charge of astronaut recruits and hopefuls.

Nichelle became the first African-American to place her handprints in front of Hollywood's Chinese Theatre, along with the rest of the Star Trek (1966) crew.

In early 1951 at age 18, Nichelle married a dancer who was fifteen years her senior. Within four months they split and by August of 1951 she bore his son. She remarried in 1968, this time to a songwriter, but that marriage also ended in divorce.

Nichelle was discovered by Duke Ellington in her mid-teens, she toured with both Ellington and Lionel Hampton as a lead singer and dancer.

In 1992, Nichelle made use of her voice again starring in a dramatic one-woman musical show Reflections in which she became 12 separate song legends.
