The BFI is getting into the spirit of the Star Trek 50th anniversary celebrations, with a celebratory on-stage event with special guest Nichelle Nichols planned for this coming October.
When the original Star Trek launched 50 years ago, Nichelle Nichols' ground-breaking performance as Lt Uhura (one of the first black series regulars on US TV in a non-subordinate role) was one of the many factors that made the series stand out and resonate with fans throughout the world. Since then the original idea has been revised, re-imagined, spun-off and totally reinvented. This on-stage event - hosted by Samira Ahmed (with other guests to be announced nearer the time) - will look back at the whole, hugely successful Star Trek franchise, including the recent J J Abrams films and the upcoming TV series Star Trek: Discovery.
