    One of the foundational Trek writers. Her contribution to Trek as we know it cannot be overstated.

    Star Trek wouldn't have been the success it was without her. A sad day.

    Dang. Dorothy Fontana was a huge influence on Trek. Far beyond the handful episodes that she wrote. Her role of telling Gene "No" when he had a bad idea is something that can't be overstated. Every franchise needs such a person, and she did that job well.

    If you want to see something fun that sh did, look up the "Where No Sprite Has Gone Before" episode of ReBoot.

    Definitely one of the greater contributor towards making TOS, and by extension the Trek franchise what it has become.
