    Star Trek Lt. Uhura Production Cel and Master Production Background Setup (Filmation, 1973). She was the Communications Officer and a valued member of the crew. Uhura did not beam down for many away-team missions and this cel may explain why! She is surrounded by a yellow force field (on a separate layer) in this setup. The two cel layers are hand-painted production cels in 12 field 3-peghole format. They are placed on a hand-painted Master production Star Trek background. The background itself is a lovely piece of art. Uhura measures 7.5" long on this cel and the aliens responsible for her condition stand just under 1" tall in the distant background. Nichelle Nichols returned to voice the character of Lt. Nyota Uhura for this cartoon. She was originally not cast in the animated series, but Leonard Nimoy insisted on her addition to the cast. Some pegholes have torn out, there are slight tears in the yellow force field layer. Slight overall surface dirt on all cels, otherwise in Fine condition.
