I saw someone say a thing about Uhura's first name and I wanted to make it known to everyone that Uhura's first name, Nyota, was suggested to Gene Roddenberry in 1969 and he told the writer they had to ask Nichelle and when she was told "Nyota" mean "star" she enthusiastically gave permission. Nichols tells people that Uhura's full name is Nyota Upenda Uhura, meaning (very) roughly in Swahili "star of freedom and peace".
