UPDATES: Best wishes to Nichelle Nichols for recovery

By now many of you have heard the official news, posted by her people on Facebook at Galactic Productions, LLC , that Nichelle Nichols suffered a "minor stroke" last night at her home, was rushed to the hospital, and is recovering now, undergoing tests to see its effects.

"Update #2 10:15am June 5, 2016
“The MRI showed that Nichelle Nichols had a MINOR stroke. She will start therapy this morning to evaluate how much damage was done, and try to determine her chances for a full or partial recovery. The therapists will test her hand at writing and legs to see if she can stand and walk on her own. Last night Nichelle remained alert, and cheerful.
When we told her about the love and support coming in from around the world she smiled and asked to see the posts on her facebook.
Thank you again for all of your kind words. Keep them coming because Nichelle is reading them.
Feel free to post your pictures with Nichelle and a story about when you met her.” -Zach McGinnis, Galactic Productions, LLC​"

If there was anything more to top to joy, entertainment,  awareness and outreach she has given so many over all the years already … it has taken Enterprise in Space to remind me of her huge NASA recruiting efforts for diversity and opportunity among our real-space travelers … and our blessed and timely shoot for The Con of Wrath to provide the selfish pleasure of having her before my own camera.

In this pre-anniversary year when we have had headlines enough in Trekland, I hope you join me in sending Nichelle a Priority One message full of best wishes for smart docs and a speedy recovery!
