Quote:
The prolific but cantankerous author famously penned the “Star Trek” episode “City on the Edge of Forever,” in which Kirk and Spock must go back in time to Depression-era America to put Earth history back on its rightful course, a goal that for Kirk means sacrificing the woman he loves (played by Joan Collins). The final script was rewritten by “Star Trek” staffers to avoid the anti-war lesson Ellison had intended to impart about the ongoing Vietnam War, leaving Ellison unhappy.

He was also a conceptual consultant for the Babylon 5 franchise, which is where my appreciation of him comes from.

Thanks for the announcement. My favorite story by him is I Have No Mouth, And I Must Scream.
