W.O.C. In Star Trek

Star Trek has had many prominent characters played by and written for Women of Colour.

Here are a few of my personal favourites.  I hope you like.

Iman - Martia in Star Trek VI : The Undiscovered Country

Alfre Woodard - Lily in Star Trek : First Contact

Zoey Saldana - Lieutenant Nyota Uhura - Star Trek (Reboot)

And the one who started it all... the always elegant and eloquent Ms Nichelle Nichols ...
Lieutenant / Commander Nyota Uhura... Star Trek : The Original Series
(In the novels she becomes both a Captain and an Admiral!)

UPDATE - I didn't initially include Whoopi Goldberg because I am not too fond of the somewhat weird way she has gone these days.  But she WAS very good as Guinan in Star Trek : The Next Generation.
