a D.C. Fontana primer

The onscreen ladies of Star Trek get a lot of love (and scrutiny). But what about the ones working behind the scenes? D.C. Fontana worked on several incarnations of ST, penned some of the most loved episodes of the original series and its spinoffs, and created several fascinating female characters, many of whom we're still writing and debating about today. Her career has spanned half a decade, and she's still coming up with new stories to tell.

In honor of Fontana's amazing work, I've put together a primer detailing her contributions, with quotes, photos illustrations, and links, here: a D.C. Fontana primer.  It also features a little info about the female characters Fontana created, including Amanda Grayson and Joanna McCoy.
