Walter Koenig has already announced that he will be playing the character of Pavel Chekov one final time in the Star Trek: Renegades 2-part finale episode “The Requiem.” Now it’s official that Nichelle Nichols will be joining him to reprise her role as Uhura (previously, she was only “in talks”).
Her scenes will be shooting in Los Angeles on June 22nd, and Renegades is offering fan donors a unique opportunity to attend the filming…for a $2,000 donation. It might seem like a lot, but this will be the last time these two actors will be playing their characters together in the same scene(s), and that’s quite a special moment to see live (if you can afford it–I certainly can’t).
Here is the announcement from the Renegades Facebook page:
CONFIRMED. Nichelle Nichols will be reprising her role of Uhura in “The Requiem” parts I & II. We are so thrilled to be working with this science fiction and cultural legend. What is your favorite Uhura moment?
We want you to be a part of the historic “Legends Day” shoot on the 22nd! Join us to watch, in person, what is likely the FINAL TOS scene between two Original Series actors, portraying their beloved characters Chekov and Uhura.
