That's actually a nice photo below of Nichelle from "Plato's Stepchildren" that I had never seen anywhere before, so sometimes they printed something not seen absolutely everywhere else.

Back in the late 70's and early 80's there were a number of cheaply-produced magazines put out to capitalize on the sci-fi boom by one company, all with photo-montage covers or strange generic sci-fi paintings. They carried names like "Space Trek," "Space Wars Heroes, " "Weird," "Warp," etc., all put out by the infamous Myron Fass, known for his multitude of exploitational and trashy publications (read the whole sordid story here, a NSFW link). Sucker that I was for anything Trek-related, I bought some of them as well, and occasionally a recognized author like Allen Asherman would contribute, like in today's featured interview with Nichelle Nichols. This is from the first issue of "Space Trek" put out in winter of 1978.
