She Lived Long, and Prospered

(click to enlarge)

This has to be my favorite picture of the week. I’m not quite sure what the occasion was, but Star Trek’s original Uhura, Nichelle Nichols, stopped by the White House to hang out with Obama and take probably what has to be one of the coolest pictures of his presidency.

Back in the ’60s, the Uhura-Kirk kiss was the first interracial one on TV, and President Obama admitted to having a crush on Nichols when he was a kid.

Wicked cool photo, but isn’t that shirt a tad low cut for someone that age? And when you’re uh…meeting the president? Whatever, Uhura does what she wants.
