"Star Trek" star Nichelle Nichols, known for her Lieutenant Uhura role, was hospitalized Wednesday in Los Angeles after suffering a minor stroke at her home.

The star’s agent, Zach McGinnis, updated Facebook Friday morning, saying an MRI confirmed Nichols’ stroke was minor.

"She will start therapy this morning to evaluate how much damage was done, and try to determine her chances for a full or partial recovery," he wrote. "The therapists will test her hand at writing and legs to see if she can stand and walk on her own. Last night Nichelle remained alert and cheerful. When we told her about the love and support coming in from around the world she smiled and asked to see the posts on her Facebook."

McGinnis, 82, posted later in the morning, responding to her friend Karan Ashley, who sent get-well wishes:

 

Thank you sweet heart. I'm feeling much better. Have a good weekend at Niagara Falls Comic Con. I look forward to getting back on the road with you.
