Now who will open hailing frequencies?

Amazing lady who helped make (2nd & 3rd season) Star Trek TOS what it was!

Sad to hear. Fewer and fewer of the original Star Trek cast left. Her health had been in decline for some time, though. She shares a great legacy with her castmates, even if they did not, or still do not, see eye to eye all the time.

One thing hit me: she was 89?!

She was 34 y.o. in 1967 when the 2nd season aired? I coulda sworn she was in her 20's. Lovely lady, on top of everything else.
The closest thing Trek TOS boasted IMO to Princess Leia in the RotJ slave-girl gold bikini, was alternate-Uhura's rather brief uniform in the alternate "Mirror Mirror" universe!

Found a pic!

And another!
