Nichelle Nichols, Star Trek's legendary Uhura, is recovering from her recent stroke -- and she's doing so at warp speed. The actress gave her millions of fans worldwide a scare after being hospitalized on June 3, but she's already back home, undergoing physical therapy and she even granted an interview to Entertainment Tonight that aired on Monday.

"I am feeling the best that I've felt in a very long time," Nichols said, smiling broadly. "I have this thing about so-called sickness. I can't say it about everything, but I've always felt, since I was a little girl, that if you deny it, it will go away. And it does."
