D. C. Fontana writer and story editor for a number of television shows over the years, but maybe best remembered for her work for Star Trek over the Original, Animated and Next Generation shows.  I just finished watching THE FANTASTIC JOURNEY series she was story editor for.

I remember Rene best from Benson. I thought he was the funniest thing ever in that show, at the time, the way he straight-man bounced off Robert Guillaume. His DS9 chr. was one of the things I liked about that show.

am having multiple recollections o' rené on benson with a cigarette in his hand.

maybe smoking were not a cause o' rené's cancer. dunno. nevertheless reminds us just how many has died from the habit.

even so, most memorable rené moment for us were from mash

Was not familiar with the person, but was with the art. A very iconic style that helped color the tone of an era.

Syd Mead, 86

Easily the greatest Sci-fi artist of all time, and probably forever more. Now the vision of the future is so diluted, over-shared, crowded. Never again will their be such a stark authoritative vision of the future brushed into the zeitgeist.

Wasn't a huge Rush person, outside of those few earlyish hits, but another one of those "my childhood past is dying" reminders. RIP  :(
