Nichelle Nichols did us all a favor on her Facebook Fan page (Nichelle Nichols Communications Page) today! She announced her upcoming appearance on PBS’s Tavis Smiley show. It looks like she’s recording the program tomorrow with scheduled runs this Wednesday the 12th and this Thursday the 13th.
Our local PBS station lists the first airing of Nichelle’s episode as Thursday, the 13th 12am, with several replays throughout Thursday afternoon and evening. Check your local listings to find out when it will air in your area. Here’s a link to the upcoming episode at the Tavis Smiley website.
I can’t imagine if we had missed the show. I think we would have cried. Thanks Nichelle for letting us all know!
We’d like to wish Aron Eisenberg a very Happy Birthday today, as he turns 42. All of you reading this remember him as Nog, everyone’s favorite teenage Ferengi on Deep Space Nine. Without Aron, one of our favorite DS9 episodes, It’s Only a Paper Moon, wouldn’t exist. Anytime we’re feeling down (and even sometimes when we’re not) we watch that episode and it cheers us right up. So we here at Subspace Communique are especially grateful that Aron shared his talent with all of us while on DS9.
Currently he’s the owner of Reel Life Pictures a photography and videography company in Southern California that specializes in weddings and events productions. If you’re able, take a moment and visit his site. The images are beautiful.
Happy Birthday Aron! Thanks so much for entertaining us and lifting our spirits on Deep Space Nine.

It would seem that December is rife with Star Trek birthdays. Today is the birthday of our lovely Lt. Uhura, Star Trek's own Nichelle Nichols. Before joining the crew of the Enterprise in 1966, Nichelle was an accomplished theatrical actress and singer, touring with Duke Ellington and Lionel Hampton. As we reported earlier this year, she originally saw "Star Trek" as a way to further her career on Broadway.
"It was rather interesting to me to be cast on the show, because I came up in musical theater," Nichelle said. "And somehow I was, like, really on my way to break through and do all of the things that I really wanted to do on Broadway. And I took 'Star Trek' because I thought it would be a nice adjunct to my resume and I'd get to Broadway quicker and as a star. And, I still think that way, but 'Star Trek' interrupted my career."
"I kind of got stuck there," She said. "As a matter of fact, I even tried to leave after the first season, because I thought, 'Oh, this is going nowhere for me."CONTINUE READING >>

Happy birthday to Nicole de Boer, she turns 40 today. Many of you remember Nicole as the second incarnation of Dax (or is that 11th); Ezri Dax from the last season of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. After leaving DS9, Nicole went on to star opposite Anthony Michael Hall in "Stephen King's Dead Zone" from 2002 to 2007. According to IMDB, she also has several upcoming TV movies in the works.
Something we didn't know, she also had a small role in the Kids in the Hall movie "Brain Candy". Hailing from the Great White North, just like the "Kids", Nicole is currently married to film score composer John Kastner. We'd like to give warm birthday wishes to Nicole. Happy birthday.
Hat tip to Cmdr. Torkadon for giving us a heads up.
We just found out, via LeVar's twitter feed, that today he's on the set of the NBC hit "Community" filming an upcoming episode. Okay, we love "Community" and LeVar so, it's a perfect fit. He'll be playing himself in the episode and that's about all we know, but check out the tweets below with links to his call sheet and a pic with "Community" star Donald Glover.
