It's true! Nichelle Nichols, the extraordinary actress who plays Lt. Uhura on Star Trek, says she wants to be my Valentine!

Okay, so I admit, she also says she wants to be your Valentine, too. As a matter of fact, Nichols says she wants to be the Valentine for anyone who doesn't have one of their own this holiday. Why, you ask? Because, she is just that cool.

Happy Valentine's Day! For those with their own Valentine - that's fantastic. If you don't have one - please allow me to be your Valentine." - Nichelle Nichols (Facebook)
