Yvonne Joyce Craig (May 16, 1937 – August 17, 2015) was a crush of mine during my childhood. Playing Barbara Gordon/Batgirl in the 60’s television incarnation of BATMAN was what originally got my attention. She appeared in so many shows of that era (including roles in two Elvis Presley movies, IT HAPPENED AT THE WORLD’S FAIR and KISSIN’ COUSINS) that it was hard not to notice her and her staggering beauty. But what really put the hook in my throat regarding Ms Craig was her role in the STAR TREK episode, “Whom Gods Destroy” as the Orion slave girl, Marta. My puberty began right then and there.

She was a lovely woman and a crown jewel in the realm of popular culture. Good-bye, Yvonne.
