Very sad day today. I saw her in person many times and she was always very gracious and classy with Trek fans. RIP.

RIP to Ms. Nichols and must respect for taking part in the first interracial kiss on network TV at a point where such a thing was “scandalous”.

Barack Obama had a crush on her. So did I. She was a very attractive lady. RIP

Her speech is slowed and somewhat slurred. Her illness is obvious.
