Happy birthday to math and language prodigy, Nyota Uhura! She served the USS Enterprise(s) well beyond her rank.
Uhura was an important part of the original series’ multicultural crew and one of the first characters of African descent to be featured in a non-menial role on an American television series. (Wikipedia)
Go read her illustrious career at Memory Alpha; note the number of times she was the first to notice something.
To quote Ms. Uhura, hell yes!
