Orion Slave Girl
Here’s a still from the original Star Trek series (“The Menagerie”, 17 November 1966) featuring Susan Oliver as an Orion slave girl, and is one of 30 cards in the Star Trek Postcard Box by Chronicle Books.
Susan Oliver is my hero. The fan site SusanOliver.info carries images of a letter and photo she sent to a fan back in 1966, an Air Force sergeant in Vietnam. In the letter, she expresses pride in those who serve. There are a number of entertainers today who would do the same, but it seems that it’s a small percentage overall. Sadly, Susan Oliver passed away in 1990.
Don’t forget: there’s only three weeks to the Star Trek Movie Launch, so click the link and get showtimes and tickets. Naturally, the new Star Trek movie features an Orion slave girl as well. Better than the original? You be the judge.
