    Great detective work. I'm thrilled that this mystery has finally been solved.

    Let's hope this drives a stake through the Victoria Vetri myth once and for all . ...

    We finally know. And we got a great little anecdote about the Mystery Lady and Shatner.

    Didn't Shatner have lots of anecdotes about guest actresses from TOS?
    I think there was something about Shatner and the lady who played Miramanee, Joan Collins. OK thats only 3

    Sabrina Scharf played Miramanee; Joan Collins played Edith Keeler.

    The article says that tomcat Shatner asked her out for lunch. She didn't tell him that she was engaged to be married. IIRC, Shatner didn't get divorced until the 3rd season(?) Maybe indiscretions such as this accelerated the split up.

    I rather winced at her interview. "I went out with him even though I was engaged." (not exact words). And "I thought about calling off the marriage."

    And she went on honeymoon without her husband because he couldn't go. Huh? Isn't the point of the honeymoon for the newlyweds to go together?

    Not very smart to tell that story. Makes her look kind of dumb, especially since I doubt Shatner fell for her at the lunch.

    Didn't Shatner go one step further with Tanya Lemani in Wolf in The Fold? I've heard she claimed Shatner was her lover during the making of the episode! :eek:

    According to Memory Alpha, she filmed her scenes on only one day (July 3, 1967) so it must have been a very brief courtship (unless they spent the July 4 holiday together as well).
