Re: Episode of the Week : The Cage

Compared to the all-white Lost in Space, Uhura was notable, but compared to I Spy ('65) or Mission: Impossible ('66) her role wasn't anything to shout about.

Inside Star Trek: The Real Story definitely makes the point that NBC wanted a multi-racial cast from the beginning; I can consult the book a little later if someone is interested in a quote.
