I just saw 'Skin of Evil'. The Black-Soot Oil creature that killed Lt. Yar.
Why did they kill her off? Career-move? Anyone remember why she was let go?
Hey, trekjiro. I believe Denise Crosby felt she wasn't getting good plots as Tasha Yar, so that's why she was killed off. Of course, Tasha's character being iced gave Michael Dorn more screentime as Worf became security chief. If that hadn't happened, his character would've developed quite differently, I'm sure. -- RR
