Uhura, from the United States of Africa, speaks Swahili and was born January 19, 2233. Uhura first appears in the episode "The Man Trap," joining the crew of the USS Enterprise as a lieutenant, and serves as chief communications officer under Captain Kirk. She is depicted as a capable bridge officer and readily manned the helm, navigation and science stations on the bridge when the need arose. Uhura was also a talented singer, and enjoyed serenading her shipmates when off-duty; Spock occasionally accompanied her on the Vulcan lyre. In "The Lorelei Signal", a 1973 episode of Star Trek: The Animated Series, Uhura takes control of the ship when the male officers fall victim to a species of sirens and leads an all-female rescue party. After the sirens are defeated, the Enterprise helps the sirens, and Uhura bonds with the sirens, who are happy at the thought that they might meet men and have children. She is later promoted to lieutenant commander in Star Trek: The Motion Picture, and to full commander in Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan.

The reverse design features selective colour and detailed engraving in the side-by-side depiction of a beloved Star Trek character, and the innovative Trek technology that is often associated with her. On the left side is a portrait of Communications Officer Nyota Uhura (portrayed by actress Nichelle Nichols) in a red uniform as she holds the scientific device designed for data sensing and analysis: the tricorder. A larger engraved rendering of a tricorder is to the right and offers a closer glimpse of the screen on its rotating hood, its control buttons and compartments, and the shoulder strap that allows it to be carried during away missions. Both Uhura and the tricorder casually overlap the outline of Starfleet’s Delta Shield Insignia engraved in the background.
