Artist Inspirations: Uhura (2007-2020)

Uhura in her iconic pose, left hand up to her ear and elbow pointed out, was recreated in Keepsake form in 2007.
Left: Uhura in “The Carbonite Maneuver”.
Right: The 2009 convention exclusive ornament is a simple repaint of the 2007 Uhura in red, happily, she strikes her famous pose wearing gold in the “The Carbonite Maneuver” (S:1, E:10). The back of the Hallmark box states Uhura had only wore gold in that one episode although she had donned it previously in “Mudd’s Women” (S:1,E:6).
Left: Nichelle Nichols as Uhura in a 1966 publicity still.
Right: 2015 Legends Series: Uhura ornament with slightly less hair and missing the front overlap on her skirt.
Left: Uhura in “Mirror, Mirror” (S:2, E:4).
Right: 2020 Storytellers Series: Uhura ornament.

    Ha! Way to point out my flub! 😉 Yeah, I wrote that box back and completely forgot about “Mudd’s Women.” In my defense, she had five lines across three scenes in that episode and no one even called her by name. (Kirk calls her “Communications” twice.)
