@Brandon9000,
She was also in The Outer Limits, The Twilight Zone and, yes, The Monkees. Also Hogan's Heroes and The Man from UNCLE.

She was quite a beautiful woman. People I know who've been to Trek conventions say she was always gracious and kind.

That's nothing to be ashamed of Jespah, you can just admit it.

@maxdancona,

I 've been to about 5 of them
annually in the 1970s, in NY on Lexington Ave. & 42nd St. Grand Hyatt
Thay were phenomenal. I was thrilled; felt sad to leave on Sunday. Deep fun.
Extremely, mindblowingly creative.

The costume contests lasted about 4 or 5 hours
at night as competitors walked across the stage
in their colorful Star Trek costumes; good hortas.

Great sculpture! Imaginative Romulan War Birds,
maybe 18 feet long, sculpted in wood, with colored flashing
computer lights visible thru the windows of the Romulan Bridge.

@OmSigDAVID,
David, did you ever go in costume? Who (famous) did you meet there?

I went to the first few ever "Star Trek" conventions in NYC in the mid and late 70s.

No.
Several of the cast members spoke. Classic Trek. Maybe all of them.
I did not meet them personally.
