Star Trek is one of the reasons I’m here — but now all that’s in doubt.

Follow me for a minute.

This is Lt. Uhura, who was played by Nichelle Nichols in the original series.

Here’s me and my friend TJ meeting her at a convention, sometime in the 1980s.

Nichelle Nichols was part of TV’s first interracial kiss, with her and William Shatner. That happened in “Plato’s Stepchildren,” originally broadcast Nov. 22, 1968. That’s this here:

My mom was a big fan of the original show. Then, in 1975, she married a black dude. A year later, I was born. So I owe my very existence to Star Trek.

But.

The new movie establishes an alternate timeline for Star Trek … one in which certain events from the original series may not have happened. So … did the kiss still happen?

Am I still in canon?

Will I cease to exist?

Animated Kirk says it makes his head hurt.
