New documentary explores ‘Star Trek,’ Nichelle Nichols and NASA’s 1970s astronaut search

In the 1970s, “Star Trek” actor Nichelle Nichols saw an astronaut corps lacking in diversity and did what she could to change it.

The story of how Nichols went about it – and the various people she inspired – is told in the new documentary “Woman In Motion: Nichelle Nichols, Star Trek and the Remaking of NASA.” The feature-length show is available today on streaming service Paramount+.
