Dorothy "D.C." Fontana, a legendary science fiction writer who for many years was the rare woman in the field, has passed away at age 80.

D.C. Fontana was best known for her contributions to "Star Trek" canon, where she contributed to the original 1960s television series as both a writer and story editor. Many of her greatest contributions were focused on crafting the logic-centric Vulcan culture, usually as personified by Leonard Nimoy's Mr. Spock. Among her scripts for various "Star Trek" series were "Yesteryear," "Journey To Babel," "Charley X," "Tomorrow is Yesterday," "Dax," and "Encounter at Farpoint."
