Love Uhura More
Celia Rose Gooding stars in the “Star Trek” prequel series "Strange New Worlds" as Nyota Uhura, an important character in the "Star Trek" franchise.  On the show, Uhura is a cadet specializing in linguistics, and it looks like "Star Trek" fans are already falling in love with the way the character is depicted in "Strange New Worlds."
A captured scientist is beamed up to the Enterprise in the premiere episode and poses a potential danger to the ship. Uhura uses her knowledge to befriend him, which sets the scientist up to be recaptured and sedated again, showing how ingenious and intelligent Uhura is.
