1.0 out of 5 stars Terribly sad amateurism March 16, 2000
Format:Audio CD
First off, I'm a big Star Trek fan. Have attended conventions (back in the 70's), know every original series episode by heart. However, I'm also a musician and music lover.
This is a terrible, terrible collection of songs. Nichols' voice is adequate; that's not the problem. I don't know the story of how this album got produced, but the songwriting in it is so embarrassingly poor that it puts a huge mark of shame on the otherwise distinguished career of Ms. Nichols. The production sounds like it was done on someone's PC, and is likewise extremely amateurish.
Please do her a favor and don't buy this. Listen to this clips provided here and you'll see what I mean. How sad.

4.0 out of 5 stars If you have poor taste in music... July 1, 2005
Format:Audio CD
...then come sit by me and we'll pop this in the CD player. The production is atrocious and the lyrics are cheesy and embarrassing, but I just can't help liking it. Highlights are the title track, where Nichols appears to simulate an orgasm, and "Star Rock" which is just a terrible, but still somewhat compelling, song.

2.0 out of 5 stars I got my copy autographed! December 28, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Here we have an album by Star Trek's "Uhura". Sure, she can sing, but to be perfectly frank, most of the songs here aren't very good. Most of them have "outer space" themes, and they are pretty cheesy. And can you handle TWO versions of Nichelle's tribute to Gene Roddenberry?(one is sung, one is spoken, both have the same backing track.) The CD concludes with a 25 minute interview with Nichelle, which is sort of interesting to hear once, but I can't imagine too many people will want to hear it more than once. This CD will really only appeal to Star Trek fans, who of course are the only ones who would buy it anyway.

1.0 out of 5 stars Buy "Down To Earth" instead June 18, 2005
Format:Audio CD
While Nichelle Nichols voice is as lovely as ever, the production on this CD is just awful! It is just about un-listenable. When listening to the version of the Star Trek theme song on this CD, I couldn't help but think of Bill Murray on SNL doing his bad lounge singer routine when he sang "Star Wars"...this song is just as bad. If you want to check out Ms. Nichol's singing, do yourself a favor and buy "Down to Earth" instead...that CD is the way she was meant to be heard.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nichelle Communicates A Winner December 8, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Nichelle Nichols, best know for her work on Star Trek, is charming on "Out of This World". Nichols, who once toured with Duke Ellington in the 1950's, jumps all over the musical map. Everything from pensive ballads, the wonderful and emotional "Gene", to all-out rockers, like the spellbinding "Ancestry". This song is a classic that should have found a home on alternative rock radio. Her delivery is almost punk-rock in it's unique phrasing. Very refreshing indeed! If you appreciate alternative music, you'll just love this album! I only wish she was still recording!
