Nyota Uhura served in Starfleet in both the 23rd century and the 24th century. Nearly thirty years of that service was under Captain James T. Kirk, aboard the USS Enterprise and the USS Enterprise-A.


Early Life

Uhura was born in 2239 on Earth, in the United States of Africa. Her mother, M’Umbha gave birth to her in 2239. Nyota learned to speak Swahili. (TOS: "The Man Trap", "The Changeling", "Spectre of the Gun")

USS Enterprise (NCC-1701)

In 2266, she was posted to this Constitution-class vessel and held the rank of lieutenant. Uhura was assigned as communications officer. Although, she proved to be a capable technician and even took the helm on occasion. (TOS: "The Corbomite Maneuver", "The Balance of Terror")

On stardate 3541.9, Uhura had her mind wiped by the Nomad probe. Christine Chapel was later able to restore her memories through a combination of educational and medical techniques. (TOS: "The Changeling")

Uhura in 2269. (Star Trek: New Voyages)
Sometime prior to the Enterprise’s refit, in the early 2270’s, Nyota was promoted to lieutenant commander. She continued to function as the communications officer, under the command of Willard Decker. Admiral Kirk, once again, assumed command of the ship during the V'Ger incident. (Star Trek: The Motion Picture)

Once the Enterprise was assigned as a training vessel, Nyota was promoted to commander and was transferred to Starfleet Command communications. Her duties also involved speaking at Starfleet Academy. She was on the Enterprise when the scientists in charge of Project Genesis contacted Admiral Kirk. (Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan)

Later that year, Uhura aided Admiral Kirk, and other crew members, in stealing the Enterprise. The ship was later destroyed. She then, joined the survivors on Vulcan. (Star Trek III: The Search for Spock)

She was forced to travel back in time, along with the rest of her crewmates, in an attempt to save Earth from the Whalesong probe. The mission was a success.

Upon returning to 23rd century Earth, the charges against her were dropped. (Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home)

USS Enterprise (NCC-1701-A)

Nyota was assigned to the Enterprise-A. In 2287, the ship was hijacked by a group of zealots led by Sybok. Uhura refused to resist him after she had ‘shown him her pain.’ (Star Trek V: The Final Frontier)

Six years later, she and the crew were involved in exposing the Khitomer conspiracy. After the Enterprise’s decommission, she returned to teaching at the academy. (Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country)

Star Trek: Of Gods and Men

In 2306, the USS Gunterman ferried Uhura to join USS Enterprise-B Captain John Harriman and Captain Pavel Chekov aboard the newly-commissioned museum USS Enterprise (NCC-1701-M). She admitted in her personal log she still hadn't recovered from the death of James Kirk in 2293.

With the Enterprise-M forced to race to the planet Gateway housing the Guardian of Forever, Uhura accompanied Harriman and Chekov to the planet's surface to investigate an unwelcomed visitor on the surface. Charlie Evans activated the Guardian, jumping back in time and preventing James Kirk from being born, creating an alternate reality.

In this alternate reality, Uhura lived on Vulcan and was married to Stonn. The pair had a married son, Sevar, and two grandchildren. Uhura was convinced that even if Vulcan ceded from the Galactic Order that the Order would not let it lie so easily. She, and her family, escaped the planet before the Omega weapon destroyed Vulcan. (Star Trek: Of Gods and Men)

United Trek fan fiction universe

Uhura became Head of Starfleet Intelligence in 2334, at the age of 95. She served in that role for nearly thirty years. An entire generation of SI operatives became very loyal to the elderly woman.

She became aware of Section 31 and began organizing a counter group with officers she could trust. Upon "retirement" in 2362, she continued her efforts against Section 31. Thirty-one now considers her one their greatest internal problems. She lives in hiding while still keeping contact with officers in the fleet.

In 2376, she is still alive at the age of 137.

Personal life

In her youth, she could be described as the life of the party. Uhura often performed, in the form of singing, for the crew. (TOS: "The Conscience of the King", "The Changeling")

Nyota apparently held some affection for Montgomery Scott. (Star Trek V: The Final Frontier)


In the novelization of Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home, Chekov said Uhura was from the Bantu Nation.

Uhura appeared in several published works, including: The Art of the Impossible, Catalyst of Sorrows, and Vulcan's Soul, Book I: Exodus.
