Star Trek star Nichelle Nichols was stopped at LAX on Friday because her traveling companion was carrying drugs.

According to TMZ, Nichols, who played Lt. Uhura on the cult-classic TV classic, was at an American Airlines terminal when her male companion’s suitcase fell open, revealing a bag of meth.

Nichols was released and allowed to board her flight after assuring police that she knew nothing about the drugs, but the man was arrested for drug possession.
