Nichelle Nichols To Appear In Heroes August 10, 2007

by Anthony Pascale

Is the NBC hit Heroes becoming a proxy for Star Trek?. First there
was the popular recurring role for George Takei (TOS: Sulu), then
Dominic Keating (ENT: Malcolm Reed) was announced to recur in the 2nd
Season and then series regular Zachary Quinto was announced as the
new Mr. Spock for the new Star Trek movie. Earlier this week Heroes
creator Tim Kring told E! News that he was looking "for another face
that will have a very similar impact" to Takei when he came onto the
show. Now TrekMovie.com can reveal the `face' Kring was talking about
is none other than Nichelle Nichols, the original Uhura. Last week
TrekMovie.com was told by a source about the Nichols casting and
today had a chance to ask the actress herself about it (at the Las
Vegas Creation Star Trek Convention). Nichols confirmed that she will
have a recurring role, but couldn't give any more details - noting
the show's penchant for secrecy. According to our source Nichols will
appear in 5-6 episodes of the second season of Heroes.

How much do you want to bet that the next guest star afyer this will be Patrick Stewart? Then it will really be a ripoff of X-Men LOL.
