This Friday and over the next several months, seven FUNKY Sci-Fi flicks are set to hit the silver screen. Starring the likes of Will Smith, Tom Cruise, Jodie Foster, Morgan Freeman, Harrison Ford, Tilda Swinton, Idris Elba, Matt Damon, George Clooney and Sandra Bullock, it looks like we’re in store for some great acting amidst the stars.
Star Trek was adapted for comics by Gold Key. The first issue was published on July, 1967. This series ran for sixty one issues, through 1979. Lieutenant Uhura, played by Nichelle Nichols, was one of the first positive Black characters on television and also one of the first positive Black characters to appear in a comic book series and later in a Saturday morning animated series.
Below is a short called “Trek Turner”, a remix of the cartoon version featuring Lieutenant Uhura from the Star Trek animated series, dubbed over with Nichelle Nichols’ dialogue from the 1974 blaxploitation film “Truck Turner”. Animated or live action, that’s one Bad Ass Bitch!
