Thank you! That's an awesome video and Nichelle Nichols is so frickin' awesome! This is also what I love about Start Trek, and sci fi in general, it allows for exploration and experimentation of our own world outside of its boundaries, stereotypes, and expectations.

Leonie (leonierogers) | 152 comments I know! She's just amazing and was such a trail blazer. I think it's really empowering to hear her explain how she put aside her first love of musical theatre, and look at the greater good she could do as a woman who was black in a position of authority in front of millions. And I agree about scifi and fantasy as well - it's such an opportunity to explore beyond the stereotypes.
