Star Trek vets Die in Threes in a big way
Wow, when it comes to Dying in Threes, you can't get more obvious than the recent deaths of veterans of the original Star Trek TV series.
The announcement today that Robert Justman, a producer on the original show and one of its creative forces, died Wednesday at 81, comes close on the heels of two other Star Trek obits in the LA Times:
Joseph Pevney, a film and television director who directed some of the most popular episodes of the original "Star Trek" TV series in the late 1960s, died at 96 on May 18th.
Alexander “Sandy” Courage, who composed the soaring Star Trek theme, died at 88 on May 15th.
(FUN FACT: The last episode of Star Trek aired on June 3, 1969.)
