President Obama & Lt. Uhura, Live Long And Prosper

Last night, Nichelle Nichols (aka Uhura from “Star Trek”) posted this incredible photo on her Twitter (I follow her, obvs) featuring her and President Obama throwing up the Vulcan salute for “live long and prosper.” In addition to being totally nerdtastic, it’s also quite moving. Martin Luther King Jr. once told Nichols that her role on “Star Trek” was important justice work and convinced her to stay on the show. And here she stands, years later, with the first African-American President. How could you not adore this photo? It would be illogical. [Twitter]
