    Grace Lee Whitney as Yeoman Janice Rand in "Star Trek."
    Actress Grace Lee Whitney, best known for her role as Yeoman Janice Rand on "Star Trek," has reportedly died at age 85.

    The TV star's family told local news station KSEE that she passed away in her home in Coarsegold, Calif., on May 1.

    The Michigan-born entertainer started her career as a singer, eventually opening up for the likes of Billie Holiday and Buddy Rich.

    Whitney was also known for being the inspiration of the first Chicken of the Sea Mermaid, which appeared on the cans in 1952.

    She became an alcoholic and hooker soon after, so I'm betting yup.

    Yeah, really!! I had no idea they were all so old. Shatner may be chubby but he looks good for his age.

    What do you mean, "all of a sudden"? Star Trek premiered nearly 50 years ago, in 1966. Anyone who was an adult then will be over 70 today. Hell, I was an infant in 1966 and I'm 50 now. Star Trek was a half-century ago; it was so well-made, though, that is seems eternally new.

    That's really sad. Definitely one of the best TV sci-fi shows of the 60's.

    I always had the impression that she got the job because she had an affair with Gene Rodenberry, and when that ended she got fired from the show, setting her on her downward spiral.
