Quite enjoyable read but nothing amazing. As a fan of Star Trek I found myself switching off at the none Trek stuff. Also, this quite an old book now and nothing about recent Trek events.

If you want 400 pages of Star Trek, this may not be the book for you. If, on the other hand, you want to read a biography of a woman who has broken down barriers and lived a life few people even dream of, this book will have you enthralled. Nichols has done so much in her life, and rubbed elbows with so many incredible people--Maya Angelou, Duke Ellington, the astronauts of the space shuttle Challenger--that she's lived far beyond her role as Uhura on Star Trek. She does talk about her Star Trek career, but there's so much more to her than that. This memoir is inspirational, sometimes hysterical, and always a great read. You won't be disappointed in this book!

Nichelle Nichols's character of Uhura served as an important role model for minorities as one of the first regularly appearing African American characters on television (and an officer!). For this reason, Nichols memories of Star Trek are interesting and enjoyable (but perhaps a bit exagerated).
