    aka Lursa of the House of Duras. Sad news, apparently she died on Sunday after a battle with cancer. :(

    Something I never even knew 'til just now, she was married to Alan Scarfe for forty years. A Klingon and a Romulan in love...just like the storyline* he appeared in, Birthright part II.

    *One of several.

    Rest in peace. I had no idea that she was married to Alan Scarfe.

    That's horrible. She and Walsh were great as the Duras sisters. Condolences to the family and may she RIP. :(

    I should imagine being dead is less painful than being alive. Congratulations on your death.

    I recall briefly considering doing this when my father passed away in the hospital ICU seven years ago. Not sure if the rest of my family would have appreciated it.

    Rest in peace Barbara March, gone too soon.

    I had an old dog who used to sit with me when I watched Star Trek, he used to run to the screen when the Klingons were on. I gave that scream for him when he died, still miss the little guy now.

    I think I understood where you were going at with this statement, but that might be misconstrued as crass.

    My father was an old Marine and a Trek fan, he would have appreciated it.

    RIP. Lursa and B'Etor were brilliant villains. The two actresses had great chemistry together. I always lamented they were killed off so soon. They'd have been great in the later seasons of DS9.

    My friend (may he RIP) and I went to a convention to see them back in 2010. That was the Chicago convention where Leonard Nimoy had to cancel because he was having gall bladder/appendix surgery. Anyway, they had started the panels about an hour sooner than in the schedule, and my friend and I had just arrived not even yet signed in to pick up our passes. So we missed those two entirely, and I still hate that because I wanted to meet them both. I love a good scene chewing villain, and with Lursa and B'etor we had two great ones.

    Rest in peace, Barbara, you will be missed. :(
