One of my favorite unsung characters the actress playing her has died. I read once that it was Leonard Nimoy who helped get her into the Star Trek films another reason to love him. She left the show for alcohol problems and had alcohol problems for many years after but did recover.

I always wondered what would have become her character. I know lots of fanfic was written. It would have been nice if Captain Janeway could have been a Rand just to link with the original series.

We lost two Star Trek actors this year. Where has time gone. She was 85.
