Wow- I missed this yesterday.

She was responsible for a lot of what the Trek legacy is today. Heavily involved with many TOS and early TNG scripts/stories with credits on many episodes of both series and other Trek series.

I was hoping to meet her at a con or other event in the next year or two- should have made it a priority in recent years.

You knew you were in for a good Trek episode when you saw her in the writing credits!


RIP DC...

A legend in the Star Trek universe.

Sad news indeed.
