We understand #NichelleNichols has been rushed to the hospital. We don’t have any diagnosis on her condition, but our thoughts are with her.

Nichols played Lt. Uhura on the original Star Trek television series from 1966-1969 and reprised her role in six Star Trek films.

The actress is reportedly resting comfortably in a Los Angeles hospital after undergoing treatment and tests.

Hopefully, she continues to live long and prosper so don’t beam her up just yet Scottie.
