What's on your mind?
In honor of the passing of the beloved Nichelle Nichols, I wanted to share a piece of information that I just learned myself, and, much to my surprise and delight, it’s CANONICAL!
I did not realize this, but Uhura ended her career as a Captain, having commanded the USS Leondegrance for the last 30 years of her service to Starfleet.
Please read up below, but the wonderful production team of PIC slid this Easter egg in as tribute to Nichelle and Uhura. Pretty cool!
(note: while Uhura’s captaincy is canon, the above image is not. Sourced from one of the fan films Nichelle did in her later years).
If I wanted to officially get into the franchise, I should start with the original series, right? Also, Tendi from Lower Decks is cute. :3

What is the size of Voyager J? I can't find any info on it's dimensions
Which one(s) would you choose, and who would like to see them as??? Me, with Patrick Stewart as my top personal-favorite live-action actor (and since he portrays Jean-Luc Picard), I for one would like to see my top personal-favorite live-action actress, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, portray a ship's counselor in a future Star Trek project.
Though I also have a feeling that this probably won't be the case, since her second and current husband, Ewan McGregor, portrays Obi-Wan Kenobi in Star Wars and he's announced that she's slated to play a character in Ahsoka in the latter franchise. Bummer.
With Picard being promoted to admiral during the Romulan evacuation, and Riker and Troi having been posted on the U.S.S. Titan (NCC-80102) at that time, the book Star Trek: Picard - The Last Best Hope revealed that Worf was promoted to captain of the Enterprise-E. So it makes one wonder what the new Enterprise crew under Worf's command was doing during the Romulan evacuation, and if they'll reunite aboard said ship. If you ask me, reuniting with The Next Generation crew wouldn't be complete without the starship Enterprise. I mean, personally speaking, the Enterprise-D is my top personal-favorite version of all the Federation starships that have carried the name Enterprise, but the thought of The Next Generation crew being back on the Enterprise should help bring a sense of finality to both The Next Generation and Picard. But what do you all think of this???

To be clear, there have been absolutely no development, discussions, planning, or pitch made for a film, nor have I heard any rumors of such. This is merely saying Sir Patrick has not ruled it out. 🖖🏾
R.I.P Nichelle Nichols.
Romulans and Vulcans have a common ancestor but they can't share blood transfusions, yet they can have kids. It takes species millions of years ro diverge from their ancestors yet it took Romulans only about 1,000 years to evolve into a subspecies of vulcan to the point where they are no longer capable of sharing a blood transfusions.
