Re: Marvel's Star Trek Comics (1980-82)

^Well, the idea of Joanna existed before TAS, in a 16-page story outline by D. C. Fontana, but as far as I know, "The Survivor" is the first time Joanna is referenced in an actual, completed and released (and arguably canonical) work of professional fiction. Even the Gold Key comics that give McCoy a daughter named Barbara were published after TAS ended, as was Joe Haldeman's Bantam novel Planet of Judgment (which referenced Joanna as McCoy's daughter but used "Honey" as his wife's apparently legal name).
