In 2249, there was a fire in Nyota Uhura's dorm room at the Institute for Advanced Mathematics. Uhura's roommate, a girl named T'iana, was trapped under a fallen beam, and Uhura was lit ablaze. Uhura was unable to save T'iana before succumbing to the effects of the heat and fire. For years afterwards, Uhura would have dreams about T'iana's death and Uhura's subsequent rescue by adults. The fear recurred most vividly in 2269 when Uhura was part of the USS Enterprise crew facing a deadly heat effect that began in the Beta Castelli star system. (TOS novel: The Three-Minute Universe)
