To boldly go where Yoeman has gone before

Grace Lee Whitney, who played Yoeman Janice Rand in the original Star Trek series has died.
Quote
Her son Jonathan Dweck said she died of natural causes Friday in Coarsegold, California, about 50 miles north of Fresno.
Whitney played Yeoman Janice Rand in the first eight episodes before being written out of the series.
Although she only appeared in 8 episodes it seem like it was a lot more. She did appear in several of the movies, though.
Not many of the original cast left now, sadly; Kirk, Sulu, Chekov and Uhura.

I always liked the bit where she said she new her trek days were numbered because there was two blonds in the cast.
Nichols was safe as the only black women but as Barrett was going out with the big boss she knew her time was up.
