Goldberg made me feel like this was an incredible accomplishment, and she encouraged other women to go into space, according to her. She was incredible, and I was fortunate enough to spend time with her over the years. She will be missed.

Deleted Scene of Uhura and Spock
Nichols Star Trek past video was shared by a fellow fan on her YouTube channel. In this deleted scene from the Season 3 episode of The Original Series, Nichols quizzes Spock (Leonard Nimoy) about playing the Vulcan lute. This musical instrument was used during the Charlie X, The Way To Eden, and Amok Time episodes.
The Enterprisesarboretum was only seen in two episodes of TOS. The scene has not been color-adjusted or special effects. According to Memory Alpha, the scene was one of just three that was filmed.
In a way, this interaction between Spock and Uhura seems to be almost flirtatious. These interactions were why the characters were lovers in the Kelvin movies that followed.
According to Roberto Orci, who co-wrote Star Trek (2009) with Alex Kurtzman, the original series had a little flirtation. In 2012, Orci spoke with IGN.
We thought that since we were harmonising on some of the things that were previously, what occurred in the original series? said Orci. The first interracial kiss was with Kirk (William Shatner). So we thought, what can we do that is different, but still pays homage to that? Spock!
