Emerald City Comicon Announces Nichelle Nichols as Their First Celebrity Guest for 2014

Press Release:

Hailing frequencies are open in Seattle! Emerald City Comicon announces first celebrity guest of 2014!

Time to plan the “trek” to the largest comic book and pop culture convention in the Northwest!

UhuraSeattle, WA – Legendary actress Nichelle Nichols (“Lt. Uhura” from the classic Star Trek) is the first celebrity guest announced (as well as the fifth and final original cast member to attend over the last five years) for the upcoming 12th annual Emerald City Comicon taking place on March 28th – 30th, 2014 at the Washington State Convention Center. She will be appearing all three days!

Nichelle Nichols is truly one of the most trailblazing figures in television, with her regular role in Star Trek being one of only a small handful for black actresses that were featured prominently each week in people’s homes. So much so that civil rights leader Martin Luther King, Jr. himself pleaded with her not to leave the sci-fi series because  she was serving as a crucial role model not only for women but for African-American’s everywhere.

Known quite literally around the galaxy, Nichols’ portrayal of “Lt. Uhura” on Star Trek spanned three seasons during the original series, a subsequent animated series and six feature films. Her professional career began with the 1959 film Porgy and Bess starring Sidney Poitier and Pearl Bailey, followed by appearances on the television series Tarzan and Gene Roddenberry’s The Lieutenant. Post-Star Trek work include roles in Snow Dogs, Are We There Yet? and episodes of Heroes and Futurama.

Nichols is also an accomplished singer, having released two albums of standards. She published her autobiography, ‘Beyond Uhura’, in 1994. Ever since the cancellation of Star Trek, she has been an advocate for NASA and began working directly with them to recruit both women and minorities into the space agency. Since the mid-80s, Nichols has also served on the Board of Governors of the National Space Society.

Nichols is the first of roughly two dozen celebrity guests to be announced for this spectacular weekend, in addition to hundreds of popular comic guests, exhibitors and several exciting new offerings and surprises.

Coming off of a sold out 2013 show, tickets for Emerald City Comicon 2014 will be in high demand when they go on sale September 1st, 2014!

With a record turnout of 64,000 patrons in 2013, Emerald City Comicon consistently ranks as one of the Top 10 most attended conventions of its kind in North America as well as increasingly becoming the favorite show among many fans, comic guests, journalists and celebrities.

Established in 2003, Emerald City Comicon, while renowned worldwide for its growing popularity, continues to remain the Northwest’s premier comic book and pop culture convention founded in the belief that investing in local artists, companies and individuals is a lasting recipe for success and longevity.

Look for regular press releases containing all of the latest news leading up to the show in March 2014. For more information, please visit ECCC’s website at www.emeraldcitycomicon.com
