The connection between Heroes and Star Trek is strong, and getting stronger: first George Takei (TOS: Sulu), then Dominic Keating (ENT: Malcolm Reed).

Then Zachary Quinto cast as Spock… and earlier this week Heroes creator Tim Kring told he was looking “for another face that will have a very similar impact” to Takei when appearing on the show.

The ‘face’ Kring was talking about is Nichelle Nichols, (ST: Uhura), and she’ll appear on six episodes of Heroes Season Two.
