Image of the Day: President Obama Can't Hide His Star Trek Fandom

Apr 04, 2012

It really shouldn't matter what your politics are, the above image of President Barack Obama posing with original Star Trek actress Nichelle Nichols has to give you a nice, geeky smile. It was taken in the Oval Office this past Leap Day when the USS Enterprise's chief communications officer visited the White House, presumably to advise the Commander in Chief on all things Tribbles, Gorn and Klingon.

Nichols shared the image last night on Twitter, and if you're dying for more info on the salute, her character, and Obama's Trekkie track record, check out our pal Jordan Hoffman's piece at Screen Crush, a new movie site you should add to your normal reading rotation.
