Nichelle Nichols, turning 85 today and still busy acting, talks about life after 'Star Trek'


Diversity and inclusion on the screen — and behind the scenes — wasn't a hot topic when, on Sept. 8, 1966, "Star Trek" premiered. Yet when Gene Roddenberry's little show introduced Nichelle Nichols to the world as Lt. Nyota Uhura of the Starship Enterprise, she unknowingly inspired millions of young girls and boys, African American and otherwise.

A black woman being given the responsibilities of a bridge crew officer — even in the fictional setting of space — was unheard of in the TV landscape of the 1960s. But Nichols’ performance, with little fanfare at the time, gave generations to come a template of what a sophisticated, multi-talented actress could do.

More than 50 years later, Nichols is still going strong. The musician-turned-actress turns 85 on Thursday and hasn’t stopped working. Just this week, a couple of days before her birthday, she was on set filming the sci-fi parody "Unbelievable!!!" The film, which boasts 40 former “Star Trek” actors — including Michael Dorn, Nana Visitor, Tim Russ, Marina Sirtis and Nichols' onetime "Trek" co-star Walter Koenig — follows the exploits of four astronauts (one is an animatronic marionette) who travel to the moon on a rescue mission.

Nichols is also working on "Noah's Room," a film about a black family that takes in a white youth who's been abused by the foster care system. She plays the matriarch of the family in the faith-based drama.

Thursday Toon Roundup 1 - Indict the Bastard


















44 percent of Republicans think Trump repealed Obamacare

One-third of American adults believe that President Trump has successfully repealed Obamacare, a new poll from the Economist and YouGov finds.

The poll of 1,000 adults shows that 31 percent believe Trump has repealed the Affordable Care Act, 49 percent say he hasn’t, and 21 percent are unsure.

Of those who identify as Republican voters, 44 percent say that Trump has repealed Obamacare.

Just to be clear, Trump hasn’t repealed Obamacare. Most of the Affordable Care Act is still the law of the land. But the Republicans’ new tax bill did repeal a key feature of the law, the requirement that all Americans carry health insurance coverage.
