Original Star Trek actor Grace Lee Whitney dies at age 85 .
Sad news, indeed. The cast of TOS is starting to get smaller more quickly.
Another cast member gone.
Very sad, she and Nichelle Nichols were great role models for women.
Yep. A great show, way ahead of the times.
another one gone to the stars
We lost another Star Trek Original Cast Member
Yeoman Rand played by Grace Lee Whitney has passed away May 1st at the age of 85
I'm a huge fan of the original Star Trek and always had a special place in my heart for Yeoman Rand. I'm 63 and the reality of our mortality is becoming more and more real everyday
Was also one of my favs
While I agree with you wholeheartedly, let's not sell Majel Barrett short..
While the actual TOS series was before my time, I don't recall a female first officer in any branch of the military at that time; yet there she was.
The original Star Trek woman was great. Do sad she passed away.
Ughh HOW could I neglect her???
Man, I haven't though about Yeoman Rand in at least forty years. As a child I had a real boy-crush on her. She had a certain sadness about her and seemed particularly vulnerable, and it struck a prepubescent chord in me. I didn't know she was an alcoholic (I didn't know anything about her until tonight) and now I believe she was channeling her real-life problems into her ST role. I think that is a sign of true talent. Anyway, R.I.P.
