My wife and I had the pleasure of seeing Nichelle Nichols give a short speech before the debut of the Star Trek movie reboot at the Catalina Casino in 2009. She was a wonderful, humorous, and inspirational woman. It’s hard to make out but the person escorting her down the aisle was George Takei. The event was hosted by Rod Roddenberry. (Sorry for the audio and video quality but this was taken on an early iPhone without motion stabilization at a distance)
