Universe : Prime Timeline
Name : Nyota Uhura1
Species : Humans
Associated with : The Original Series

Nyota Uhura was born in Africa on the planet Earth. A skilled musician and singer,2 she was also something of a linguist and entered Starfleet in 22573 in order to work with alien languages. She chose communications as it seemed the closest match for her skills, and excelled in this position. Like most of the senior officers of the original Starship Enterprise she became something of a legend in Starfleet history. She continued to serve on the Enterprise for the entire remainder of her career, apart from the short break between Starfleet's attempt to retire the Enterprise and the commissioning of the Enterprise-A, in which she served as a transporter operator on Earth's Spacedock.4

After leaving Starfleet in 2293, Uhura became something of a diplomat. She toured many worlds, successfully promoting greater integration between Federation members.
