In any event, word reached us at SciFiHistory.Net that Star Trek's Joanne Linville has left us.
Star Trek fans will tell you that the third season of the beloved franchise was an awful lot of hit-and-miss, though it leaned heavily more in the 'miss' category than anything else. Much of this was owed to the kinda/sorta departure of Gene Roddenberry who kinda/sorta bowed out to focus on some other ventures; but it is what it is. However, I've always thought that 1968's "The Enterprise Incident" was a better-than-average outing for the crew, some of which is owed to Linville's performance as a Romulan commander. She did an exceptional job giving her character an adversary's nobility that served as a counterpoint to the Starfleet focus of Kirk and Spock.
With 84 different screen credits to her name, Linville definitely explored what she could do with her craft across all genres. I'll probably remember her more for her work in television than movies (the feature films lean toward conventional drama, which I really don't much explore). As I look over her entire roster of work, I do see much worth savoring, including roles in One Step Beyond, The Twilight Zone, and The Invaders.
Also, I'd be remiss in my duties if I failed to mention that she also put on her Trek shoes again in 2016 with some work aboard a web-based project, Starship Excelsior, for Excelsior Productions.
Though she's no longer with us, we'll always have her performances to remember her by.
Thoughts and prayers go out to families and friends.
