Many people who were part of Star Trek's mission to "explore strange new worlds ..." passed away.
In their honor, let's take a look back at some of their finest TV adventures.
Star Trek wouldn't be the Star Trek we know and love without D.C. Fontana. She wrote many of Star Trek's best episodes and shaped its most iconic character, Spock. She also wrote for Star Trek: The Animated Series, Star Trek: The Next Generation, and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.
The Fontana penned Star Trek Season 2 Episode 15 is great as a standalone story. It may also be the franchise’s most influential episode. Star Trek: Discovery drew a lot of inspiration from the Spock family dynamic Fontana created in that episode.
Robert Walker Jr.
Trek characters encountering creepy adolescents happened a lot.
