    This one could have been named The world revolves around ME In this book Ms Nichols comes across as a very self indulgent person Hard working no doubt but too ideal and all winged haloed beautiful faultless fierce independent strong loving insertanythingpositivehere Even when she speaks about someone else it screams Look how good it is of ME to value this other person Probably it's not her fault but her editors and co a

    My review is from the memory of reading this book years ago than from any current readings The short sweet of this autobiography is that Nichelle writes about her life before during after Star Trek Rather than go the same route as other ST alumi she tries her hardest to avoid badmouthing the Shatner even though he makes it VERY har

For nearly 30 years Nichelle Nichols has been a part of the Star Trek mythos Lieutenant Uhura communications of. I am very glad I read Nichelle Nichols autobiography She had me in tears so many times reading this The amount of racism that she had to deal with was just staggering I think most people who like Star Trek have heard her tell the story of how she was going to uit after the first season but Martin Luther King told her how important it was that she stay Now she says that she was uiting because she wanted to return to musical theatre or because her part was too small But in the book it is very clear it was because of the racism within the studio and on the set She had to deal with the studio refusing to give her a regular contract because she was a black woman instead she got a day rate and Gene Roddenberry made damn sure she was on the set every day so they d have to pay her than if she had a contract She didn t get her fan mail and faced racial abuse by make up people and security Yet despite all that she was fearless and strong She was very proud of what she achieved It was fascinating to read her early family history Her mixed race grandparents who married at the end of slavery moving north and being entirely cut of from her grandfather s rich white ex slaveowning family The way she was treated as the black daughter of a white man It was an incredible glimpse of social history Then it was fascinating to learn about how she was involved in promoting euality in NASA and managed to have a real and huge impact on the number of applicants they were having from women and BME people It was disappointing to read on here that despite these struggles hard core Shatner fans are still slamming her book cause they think she was too hard on him Personally I thought she was very balanced giving stories where she saw him at his best as well as his worstI thought it was an entertaining and inspiring book One that directly addresses America s racist past and looks with hope towards a better future

Now Nichols with her candid and insightful autobiography takes readers where no book has gone before 40 photos. This was an overall adeuate autobiography I love Star Trek but must admit that the first series is a bit too dated for me I grew up with TNG DS9 and Voyager and those are my true loves However I have always been interested in and root for women who go against the grain and Nichelle Nichols is one of those women Obviously not being alive at the time of TOS it is hard for me to appreciate just how big of a deal it was to have a character like Uhura on a TV show so maybe one of her greatest legacies is that I can watch a black woman character in the 23rd century and just think cool no big dealThe memoir itself was as I mentioned adeuate There were a lot of people named Jimmy and Jim which I found confusing One of her marriages was summed up in maybe two sentences I was definitely interested in the Star Trek aspect of the memoir and not the steamy personal life so that was fine with me it was a bit disorienting to be reading about Star Trek and then all of a sudden she mentions that she d remarried As far as the steamy personal life there really isn t much of that in this book Which is fine with me To be honest I found her writings about her work with NASA to be some of the interesting content I was hoping for her opinions about TNG but she didn t really discuss the Star Trek legacy after the three seasons and six movies that she starred inRecommended if you re a Star Trek fan It gives a nice glimpse of what the world of shooting the show and movies looked like and did give me a bit insight onto how the show became what it is today

Ficer of the starship Enterprise the first African American woman to have a major continuing role in television. While I agree with Wendy s review somewhat mostly that this book is self indulgent disjointed and maybe even egotistical I feel those issues arise in many autobiographies especially from people in the entertainment industry You have to know what you re getting into I decided to pick this up after seeing Ms Nichols relate some of her stories at DragonCon 2012 and there can be no argument that she and Uhura have been great inspirations to people of many races genders and generations I enjoyed learning about this woman her life and the creation of her most famous character even if I do take all of the tales of her cool demeanor perfection and incredible magnetism with a grain of salt
