Box Text: “Hailing frequencies are open.” From the command deck of the Starship Enterprise, Lieutenant Uhura breaks the silence of deep space. As communications officer, she transmits messages in all the languages of the known galaxy. Hers is often the first human voice to be heard by alien races in unexplored star systems. Both Uhura’s name and her spirit reflect the Swahili word for “freedom.”
Usually seen in “engineering and security” red. Lieutenant Uhura wore this striking “command” gold uniform in only one original episode, “The Carbonite Maneuver” (1966).
This special event edition repaint of the 2007 Lietenant Uhura limited quantity ornament was created for exclusive distribution at major collector events and conventions.
