Last month we reported there was a new documentary coming later this year called From The Bridge, which explores the history of sci-fi and comic book fandom. The doc is hosted by Star Trek’s George Takei and features interviews with a number of Star Trek luminaries, including the original Uhura, Nichelle Nichols.
A new clip from the doc has just been released featuring Nichols telling the story about how civil rights leader Martin Luther King convinced her not to quit Star Trek.

More from of From the Bridge will be shown at Comic-Con at a panel in Ballroom 20 on Thursday, July 19th a 10 am. The panel will be moderated by Greg Grunberg (Star Trek Beyond), and will include doc writer-director Spencer F. Lee, along with Nichelle Nichols, Rod Roddenberry, Kerry O’Quinn, Tom DeSanto, and other special guests.
