Season 3, Episode 10
Nichelle Nichols pays the Stash a visit, looking for an Uhura Mego doll from the '70s. An X-Men fan buys the first appearance of the Phoenix.
Comic Book Men returns to AMC Sunday, February 14 at Midnight/11c.
Someone comes into the Stash and asks for a Meego figurine of Lt. Uhura from Star Trek. Mike Zapcic recognizes the customer as Nichelle Nichols, the actress who played the communications officer in the original Star Trek TV series. She's leaving town in a few hours but Walt promises her they'll find the action figure in short order. With that in mind, Ming leaves to pursue a lead. While she awaits Ming’s return, Mike asks her whether Martin Luther King Jr. actually requested that she not quit Star Trek. (He did!) When Ming finally arrives with the action figure, Bryan pays for it on the condition that she’ll reenact Uhura’s famous kiss with Captain Kirk with him. (She does!) Separately, Walt purchases a He-Man statue then passes on a helmet worn by Rick Moranis in Spaceballs. Walt also sells X-Men #101 to a Jean Grey fan with a Phoenix tattoo on her wrist.
