The news was broken by Nichelle Nichols agent Zach McGinnis on facebook last night , in an update to the original announcement McGinnis said Nichols was ...

"awake, eating, in good spirits and able to have full conversations."
"Her right side has shown minor signs or mobility loss but she is not showing any signs of paralyses."
"We greatly appreciate all of the love and support her fans are showing at this time."

Get well soon Lt Uhura.

Yes, get well Uhura!

One of the most gracious, lovely, role models for young women there ever was!

Its a bloody good thing the sick bays are of a decent standard where she is.

I am glad she made it through. Although stroke is becoming more survivable, and more and more of a persons original level of function is being retained by increased understanding of stroke and better treatment methods, it is still a serious medical complaint. She's one tough lady!

Bah! She will pull through and be good as new.

Sorry to hear about the setback though, I hope she gets better soon.

Remember when she had her brain erased? She was back on comms the next episode.

If that doesn't establish her resilience, what could?

I wonder if it was caused by the fumes from her travelling companion again

Nichelle Nichols has given an interview with Entertainment Tonight in which she talks about her stroke and the road to recovery.

"I am feeling the best that I felt in a very long time," Nichols said, smiling.
Nichols added that there's been no loss of mobility in the wake of her stroke, telling ET, "I am as wild and woolly as I have ever been."

The acclaimed actress says that she was able to get past her illness using a coping technique she learned from her parents.
"Things I can't deal with and have no say over, I deny them," Nichols explained. "And strangely enough most times they go away. So this was one of those times."

But she recognizes that simply denying something won't always work, and sometimes you have to fight hard to get past obstacles.
"Yeah, I am a fighter," Nichols said. "Don't be messing with my game. My game is my career."
