Nichelle Nichols Hospitalized


Sr Member
According to a post on her facebook page (via Trek Core on twitter), she was taken to the hospital after a mild stroke, and they're doing tests to see how severe it is. George Takei has also tweeted that she was hospitalized.

I got to see her in person at the anniversary gala at the Science Fiction Museum in Seattle a few years ago, and she was amazing to listen to. I've been following her on twitter since, and I've been worried that nothing's come over her feed for a while.

She seemed very fragile when she was in Australia earlier this year.
My dad had a small stroke 2 years ago and made a 95% recovery and can still drive so I pray its a small one.
