Very much not shy to shuck her clothes. (see: ''Film/StarTrekVTheFinalFrontier'') Fans approve of this, as Nichelle is quite possibly the living definition of a foxy grandma.

In an even more awesome CMOA, a young African-American woman applied to NASA, citing Nichols as her inspiration to go into ''space''. This was Dr. Mae Jemison, the '''first female African-American astronaut.''' LifeImitatesArt indeed!

Famously took WilliamShatner down several hundred pegs. When Shatner interviewed her for ''Franchise/StarTrek Memories'', she said, "All right, [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech now I'm going to tell you why I despise you.]]" She then ripped into him for, essentially, being an arrogant cad on set - which he kind of was. He and Nic have since made up, at least partly. In fact, by ripping him apart, she may have begun his redemption.

Oh, and she can act, too!

Has lent her support to several fan productions, along with costars WalterKoenig and GeorgeTakei.

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.

In a truly sad case of {{irony}}, her brother was one of the members of the Heaven's Gate cult, who committed suicide in order to join a flying saucer he believed was behind the Hale-Bopp comet.
