Nyota[3] Uhura was the senior communications officer aboard the U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701.[4] A gifted linguist, Uhura could speak English/Galacta,[4] Swahili,[5] French,[1][2] Klingonaase, Orion, Romulan,[6] and Gorn.[7]

Star Fleet Assignments

At the age of 17, Uhura was already a student at the University of California, Irvine when she was accepted to Star Fleet Academy. Upon her graduation, she was assigned to the transport ship U.S.S. Elst Weinstein NCC-6005 as an assistant communications officer. Following that, she was transferred to the Saladin class destroyer U.S.S. Azrael NCC-517 as a communications officer.[1]

In 2205, the Azrael was in dock at Earth for a refit, which included the installation of new phasers.[12] During this time, Uhura became involved with a soldier from her home country, Jomo Murambi, whom she met while on leave. Although the relationship became serious enough that Uhura considered leaving Star Fleet, Murambi was killed in an incident with a Somali separatist group.[1]

Uhura transferred to the Constitution class heavy cruiser U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701 in 2207, where she served as Chief Communications Officer during that vessel's famous five-year mission.[4]

Following the V'Ger incident in 2217, Uhura served a limited tour of duty aboard the refit Enterprise before transferring temporarily to the U.S.S. Hornet NCC-1778[9] before returning to the Enterprise. She again served temporarily on another vessel, this time the U.S.S. Antares NCC-1820, then returned once more to the Enterprise.[1]

  3. The Star Trek: The Next Generation Officer's Manual (FASA-2012) listed a starship named "U.S.S. Samara Uhura," which was presumably named after Uhura, but multiple other sources of the era, including Star Trek II Biographies, gave her name as Nyota (which was later used on screen in both the Prime and Kelvin Timelines). As that single source was widely contradicted, and did not explicitly establish that the reference was to Nyota, it has been ignored.

  9. 9.0 9.1 Although Star Trek II Biographies states that Uhura served briefly aboard the U.S.S. Hornet NCC-1718 following the V'Ger incident, other sources established that vessel had been decommissioned nearly two decades earlier and succeeded by the U.S.S. Hornet NCC-1778. The registry has been adjusted in this entry to correct the discrepancy.

  12. The dates in Star Trek II Biographies conflicted with all other dates established in other sources; e.g., the book stated that Uhura was born in 2140, rather than 2178. All date reference have been adjusted to align with other FASA Timeline sources.
