Almost quit ''Trek'', but a fan told her that she was breaking new ground; it was inspiring for America to tune in every week and see the human race being represented, at least in part, by a black woman. The fan? The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and of course you don't argue with him. Besides, King was right... two decades later, a young African-American woman who had grown up watching Nichelle on ''Franchise/StarTrek'' asked for a recurring role on ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' and credited Nichols with being her inspiration to go into acting. This young lady was Whoopi Goldberg, and she played Guinan, the mysterious barkeeper in Ten Forward, for the rest of the series' run.
