Nichelle Nichols was born in Illinois in 1932 as Grace Nichols and portrayed Lt. Uhura in ST:TOS starting in 1966.
FedXVIIICon took place from May 1st through May 3rd in Bonn's Maritim Hotel.
After 1998 and 2004 it was the third time for Nichelle to come to Europe to see her fans.
At FedCon she had for one thing a single panel where she answered the questions of the fans and for another thing she went on stage with her colleagues Nana Visitor, Robert Picardo, John Billingsley, Connor Trinneer and Richard Arnold fand did the Star Trek Tribute Panel.
Lt. Uhura was the communications officer on the Enterprise and the only woman to appear in the regular cast.
Her film kiss with the white Captain Kirk in the episode "Plato's Stepchildren" rocked the boat in the sixties - some US TV stations even refused to broadcast the episode.
