Nichelle Nichols doing a Reddit AMA (Ask me anything):

In spite of her stroke, probably not a good pick next year.

Nana Visitor (DS9) has not been well. Underwent surgery within the last week. https://twitter.com/...762681027964928

Nichelle Nichols has suffered a "mild stroke". Might be one to keep an eye on.

I was shocked to discover that Nicelle had been omitted from all my list including my 1000 watching list.
 
Epic Fail
Is Nicelle what you get when a teleporter accident fuses Nichelle with the Enterprise's nacelles? (Sorry, couldn't resist.)

 

I have now managed to rectify this as Richard Johnson vacated his slot on the 1000 list which Nichelle has now filled.

Nichelle Nichols  The actress who played Lt. Uhura in the Star Wars film has suffered a stroke.  Someone to keep an eye for 2016 maybe as she is 82

Not Star Wars - Star Trek :shoot:

TNG:
 
Patrick Stewart (Captain Jean-Luc Picard) b. 13 July 1940 (Mirfield, Yorkshire, UK).
Jonathan Frakes (Cmdr William T Riker) b. 19 August 1952 (Bellefonte, USA).
LeVar Burton (Lt. Cmdr Geordi La Forge) b. 16 February 1957 (Landstuhl, Germany).
Michael Dorn (Worf) b. 9 December 1952 (Luling, USA).
Gates McFadden (Dr Beverley Crusher)  b. 2 March 1949 (Cyahoga Falls, USA).
Marina Sirtis (Counselor Deanna Troi) b. 29 March 1955 (London, UK).
Brent Spiner (Lt Cmdr Data) b. 2 February 1949 (Houston, USA).
Wil Wheaton (Wesley Crusher) b. 29 July 1972 (Burbank, USA).
Denise Crosby (Security Chief Tasha Yar) b. 24 November 1957 (Hollywood, USA).
Diana Muldaur (Dr Katharine Pulaski) b. 19 August 1938 (New York City, USA).
Whoopi Goldberg (Guinan) b. 13 November 1955 (New York City, USA).
Dwight Schultz (Lt. Reg Barclay III) b. 24 November 1947 (Baltimore, USA).

My Trekkie work colleague claims that Denise Crosby was an alcoholic too, during her time on TNG, which is why her character (the butch security guard, Tasha Yar) was killed off early on and only made occassional reappearances.
She believed that it would hurt her acting career to be type cast in that role. Thus, she passed on making a million or ten from regular work for a life time. Doh!
