The figure is a female with dark brown skin and rooted black hair. It comes with red tunic, brown tights, black boots, and a light blue Tricorder accessory. The red outfit indicates she is part of the Engineering division of the Enterprise.
On the show, Uhura (played by Nichelle Nichols) was the chief communications officer aboard ship. Uhura was one of the first important African-Americans on television, since she was considered an equal among the other officers (at least where rank was concerned), and proved to be intelligent, resourceful, and brave without any condescending comedic aspects.
Uhura is today considered probably the fifth most important of the original Star Trek characters, after the Holy Trinity of Kirk, Spock, and McCoy, and then Scottie.
