Any time television characters kiss for the first time, it 's good for ratings. When Captain Kirk and Lieutenant Uhura locked lips, it was historic. As fans celebrate the show 's upcoming 50th anniversary, we reflect on one of entertainment 's most influential milestones: American TV 's first interracial kiss. The "Star Trek" series was known for shattering taboos, casting diverse leads, and writing plot lines that challenged social norms. The forthcoming film"Star Trek Beyond "seeks to carry on that spirit by writing the Sulu character as gay. The decision was met with some controversy — to the surprise of the film's creators — but screenwriter Simon Pegg called it a tribute to the original Sulu and openly gay actor George Takei. The kiss between Kirk William Shatner and Uhura Nichelle Nichols , on the other hand, was anticipated to be contentious. In fact, the scene wasn't intended for the entire country to see. NBC executives were concerned the kiss would anger viewers in the South. According to reports, they planned to censor the kiss from Southern viewers entirely, showing only an embrace.
