It’s Official: Slag This Year

This happened yesterday: Nichelle Nichols passed away at the age of 89. I don’t have words. Really. I grew up with Star Trek; I saw the starship Enterprise as a representation of Earth, of how things should be. There were all sorts of people who made the Enterprise run; that’s how things were supposed to be on our planet.

It was a future I could envision happening.

All I can really say now is thank you. Thank you Ms. Nichols for all that you did, for the trail you blazed, for everything. The stars shine brighter, but the Earth has lost its luster.

About Silverwynde

I'm a Transformers fan, Pokémon player, Brewers fan and all-out general nerd. I rescue abandoned Golett, collect as many Bumblebee decoys and figures as I can find and I've attended every BotCon--official and non--since 1999. I'm also happily married to a fellow Transfan named Prime and we were both owned by a very intelligent half-Siamese cat, who crossed the Rainbow Bridge on June 16, 2018. We still miss him. But we're now the acting staff of a Maine Coon kitty named Lulu, who pretty much rules the house. Not that we're complaining about that.
