Nichelle Nichols of Star Trek fame suffered a stroke on Wednesday night, but according to her manager, the damage was only mild.
The 82-year-old actress was reportedly in her Los Angeles home when she experienced the stroke and was rushed to a nearby hospital where she is still being treated.
Her managerial team shared the sad news on Nichelle's Facebook page on Thursday, saying:
We're glad she is doing okay, but we really hope that she pulls through once the testing is completed.
Nichelle's castmate Leonard Nimoy passed away back in February, so we'd hate for their TV family to experience any more sadness.
Get well soon, Nichelle!
