RIP "Charlie Star Trek" Washburn

Larry Nemecek's blog reports that Charles C. "Charlie Star Trek" Washburn has passed away of April 13th, age 73 (link).

Charlie was reportedly the first-ever African-American to be a 2nd Assistant Director in Hollywood, in 1967. Charlie worked on Star Trek and four episodes of TNG amongst many other TV series.

His IMDB listing (link).

That's a shame. I know he shows up a bit on some of the special features that are found on the Star Trek Blu-Rays, but was he ever extensively interviewed about his role on the show?

Re: RIP "Charlie Star Trek" Washburn

Thanks for the post, Maurice. Mr. Nemecek's blog post is very nice tribute to Mr. Washburn - and there are some great photos as well. It would have been great if Mr. Washburn had published a "Charlie Star Trek" book. I'll bet he had some great stories.

He wrote one of the finest behind-the-scenes on TOS articles I've ever read (years ago in "Starlog").

RIP

You are right, Sir Rhosis. Easily trackable on line, his 'Starlog' article is great. Given enough material, his would have been a remarkable book. Thanks.

I found it, on MyStarTrekScrapbook. Definitely worth a look. Reads like a few pages from "Inside Star Trek".
