    Star Trek actress Nichelle Nichols briefly detained at LAX after travelling companion is 'busted for having meth in his suitcase'


    Nichelle Nichols - who played Uhura in the original 1960s series - was reportedly detained temporarily at Los Angeles International Airport.

    The 81-year-old actress' male companion was recently busted by authorities for having meth in his luggage, according to TMZ.

    The two had been going though American Airlines' terminal when the discovery was made.

    The companion's suitcase was said to be attached to Nichols' bags and bore her name on the tags.

    Law enforcement officials discovered the meth when the companion's suitcase fell to the floor and spilled open, revealing 'meth and drug scales,' TMZ reported.

    The companion was allegedly arrested for drug possession.

    Nichelle was apparently just as surprised by this discovery as the airport officials.

    Once her innocence was established, Nichelle was able to proceed with her scheduled flight solo.

    Nichelle is most famous for playing Uhura in the '60s version of the popular sci-fi series, and she also reprised her role as the spaceship lieutenant in the Star Trek feature films in the 1980s.

    Crystal meth is a great drug if you want to walk to Ceti Alpha V one weekend.

    She's a hundred years old. Who was her male companion? Had to be a grandson. Would be funny if it was an old gent though.

    ichelle Nichols, who played Uhura in the 60's TV version of "Star Trek," did better on spaceships than planes because her travelling companion was busted at LAX after meth fell out of his suitcase ... law enforcement sources tell TMZ.

    We've learned the 81-year-old actress was with a male companion in his 20's at the American Airlines terminal. We're told he had attached his luggage to hers and her name tags were on his bags.

    Here's the rub. Law enforcement sources tell us, his suitcase fell to the ground, opened and a bag of meth and drug scales spilled out.

    The guy was arrested for drug possession. The unsuspecting Nichols was in the clear and allowed to make her flight.



    Nichols rep tells TMZ ... the companion is her assistant and all cops found was an e-cigarette. Our law enforcement sources beg to differ ... they say they found meth.

    Should've stashed the meth in the shuttle with the Tribbles.

    Back in our youth, most of my white, suburban, middle class buddies and I all wanted to bang the usual suspects of the day...various Charlie's Angels, the hot daughter from Eight Is Enough, Susan Dey, Goldie Hawn, Marcia Brady, etc...

    Our friend Steve wanted nothing to do with any of that. He wanted Uhura. Badly. I'll bet he would snort that crystal meth off her 81 year old ass today if the opportunity presented itself.

    They say blacks hold their age well,"Black don't crack". Bullshit, Uhura didn't hold up nearly as well as Shatner. Better surgeons I suppose...

    She was not bad looking in her day, I'd have tagged it if given the chance. Now she's in the same league as Robin Q. Minus the colostomy bag of course.

    No doubt and a lot of people don't know that she really worked for NASA...

    "From the late 1970's until the late 1980's, NASA employed Nichelle Nichols to recruit new astronaut candidates. Many of her new recruits were women or members of racial and ethnic minorities, including Guion Bluford (the first African-American astronaut), Sally Ride (the first female American astronaut), Judith Resnik (who perished during the launch of the Challenger)"
