IMDB LINK In 1987, Denise Crosby was cast in the role of Tasha Yar for the much-publicized return of Star Trek to television in the syndicated series Star Trek: The Next Generation. Initially one of the topbilled characters and featured prominently in episodes. However her character was tragically killed off in dramatic fashion. Her character was killed by the alien creature Armus. But that was not the last we would see of Crosby on Star Trek. In later years, Crosby approached the TNG production team with the idea of reprising her role of Tasha Yar. This came to be in season three’s “Yesterday’s Enterprise” in which an alternate timeline is created. Crosby also guest starred in several other TNG episodes as Romulan Commander Sela, the half-human, half-Romulan daughter of Tasha Yar. Crosby later reprised the role in the Star Trek: Armada video game. Crosby co-produced and narrated the 1997 documentary Trekkies, followed by the 2003 sequel Trekkies 2. Both films star Crosby, who conducts interviews with devotees of Star Trek, more commonly known as “Trekkies”. She is reportedly working on a sequel called Trekkies 3. Along with other Star Trek actors, she has also appeared in the “Blood and Fire” episode of the fan produced series Star Trek: New Voyages, playing Dr. Jenna Yar (grandmother of Natasha Yar). Crosby also has a ton of acting credits outside of Star Trek such as the lead in Stephen King’s Pet Sematary in 1989. IMDB LINK
