Nichelle Nichols played Uhura in the 'Star Trek' series and films. In real life, Nichols helped recruit more women and people of color for NASA's astronaut program. Martin Luther King Jr. was key in urging Nichelle Nichols not to quit 'Star Trek.' ... In 1977, Nichols was appointed to the board of directors of the National Space Institute and later was invited to NASA headquarters, just as NASA was looking to expand its pool of talent and diversify. NASA asked Nichols, who had also started a consultant firm, Women in Motion, to help recruit more women and people of color applicants for the astronaut program. In just four months, Nichols was credited with bringing in more than 8,000 applications, of which more than 1,600 were women and more than 1,000 were people of color.
