Robert Justman Dead at 81

It seems that bad news does come in three as another Star Trek crew member has passed away. Robert H Justman was a producer for The Originial Series and also produced the first season of The Next Generation. He was instrumental in the casting of Patrick Steward as Captain Jean-Luc Picard. His stamp is all over the Star Trek universe and played a huge part in the universe we all grew to love.

"It wasn't just a science fiction show; it was a morality play," Justman told the Christian Science Monitor in 2001. "It was, 'Do the right thing and do right by your fellow man, and all will be well, hopefully.'"
