Years ago, Star Trek legend Nichelle Nichols, in her capacities as a longtime NASA supporter and recruiter, informed the public about the Space Shuttle program. And now, Nichols is on board once again with NASA, this time to introduce the space program's newest vehicle, the Orion. As she says in a just-released video, the Orion "will take us deeper into the solar system than we have ever gone before."
