Earlier this year Nichelle Nichols (aka Lieutenant Uhura for those of you with lives) visited President Obama at the White House. Though the official photos were taken back in February, it took several weeks for Nichols to receive her copies. So she tweeted one last night showing Obama giving the Vulcan salute while admitting to Nichols that ”he was definitely a Trekker!” Which tonight prompted Conan O’Brien to joke: “Trekkies say he doesn’t qualify because he has a wife and a job.” On the other hand, maybe Paramount forked over a big fat donation to his reelection campaign in exchange for all this free publicity.
