First Look: Star Trek’s Uhura on HEROES

Here is a first look at Star Trek‘s Uhura (aka Nichelle Nichols) in HEROES. She plays Monica’s (whom we haven’t met yet) grandmother, Nana Dawson, from New Orleans.

Don’t forget to watch Heroes “Kindred” on Monday, October 8th on NBC at 9pm.

I personally never watched Star Trek so my excitement is limited to wondering if this new character will have a new power – there hasn’t been an official statement yet.
