Remembering Those We Lost In 2013

All 31 people who sought out new frontiers remembered here

With so many hours of Star Trek available in both television and movie form, it's almost impossible to keep up with all the people who worked both in front of and behind the cameras for the franchise, and who deserves at least one last remembrance when they pass on.

Sure, we get some of the big names, like Michael Ansara, and more recently, Joseph Ruskin. But what about Katherine Woodville? Buddy Garion? Or even Nicole DeFrancesco?

Our researchers here at 1701News looked for those who may have been overlooked this past year, and are hoping you will take a moment to read a little about each one, and what they did to continue Star Trek over the last half-century.
