"Nichelle Nichols has a special relationship with her fans, one of mutual admiration and respect.  Many of them stop by every year to say hi when she's in their town at an event or convention.  I knew that for her 85th Birthday, we wanted to do something fun and special for Nichelle and her fans, and the idea for the VIP Fan Meet & Greet packages, which includes dinner at her birthday party, sounded like a unique way to include some lucky fans in the celebration," said Bell.
