In The Movies!
Gene invited the fans to participate in the "Rec Deck" scene of Star Trek: The Motion Picture. And he made sure that I had a close-up! Here I am -- third white jumpsuit from the left, looking very sad, on cue. that's because director Robert Wise has just told us that our fellow Starfleet comrades have all been blown up by "something out there." After this brilliant acting debut -- and in true Hollywood tradition -- I ended up on the proverbial cutting room floor! Gene signed this picture for me at our Christmas party; I was delighted when he drew little hearts and arrows to show his affection for me! Gene wrote: Happy Holidays '78 to Susan from Gene. And Special affection to the real "behind the scenes" Producer of Star Trek.--Admiral Roddenberry
