On December 28th please join us in wishing the best of birthdays to Nichelle Nichols, known in our universe as the incredible Commander Uhura. A powerful trailblazer in media, Nichols became the first African American woman on television to star in a major, supporting role. Her character is remembered and revered in the Star Trek world for her ferocity and prolific intelligence. We honor Nichols and her Uhura with a collection of books that encapsulate her importance to us and the greater Star Trek franchise.
Years ago, Lt. Uhura befriended a diplomat from Eeiauo, the land of graceful, cat-like beings. The two women exchanged songs and promised never to reveal their secret.
Now the U.S.S. Enterprise is orbiting Eeiauo in a desperate race to save the inhabitants before a deadly plague destroys them. Uhura's secret songs may hold the key to a cure.
Gamma Xaridian––a peaceful Federation research colony that becomes the third Federation world to suffer a brutal attack athe handsof a mysterious alien fleet. With Lt. Uhura gone on an important mission of her own, Captain Kirk and the U.S.S. Enterprise are dispatched to investigate the attacks, only to find the planets completely devastated.
The Tears of the Singers
Captain Kirk and the U.S.S Enterprise join the Klingons to avert disaster in the Taygeta V system––where a time/space warp has swallowed a spaceship without a trace. Spock suspects a link between the anomaly and the inhabitants of Taygeta, semi-aquatic creatures killed for the jewel-like tears secreted at the moment of death. But a mutinous Klingon officer threatens the vital mission, as a desperate Kirk and Spock race to save the Taygetians, the Federation––and the entire universe!
When a covert Elasian mining operation interferes with a Federation geological expedition, Captain James T. Kirk and the crew of the Starship Enterprise are dispatched to the planet Rakatan to mediate between the rival parties. While Lt. Commander Uhura and a landing party struggle to determine if the Dohlman's are rightfully in control, Captain Kirk puts his ship on the line to keep the two ships from each other's throats.
