Born Today: August 19, 1938 - Diana Muldaur
Diana Muldaur is an actress familiar to audiences from the late 1960's thru the 1980's. She appeared in many TV shows including Mannix, Charlie's Angels, and numerous Star Trek incarnations. The one show that I remember the most was Planet Earth where she played a character, Marg the dominant leader of the women with slight lesbian overtones. Planet Earth is a sequel to Gene Roddenberry's Genesis II (1973) made-for-TV movie, in which a NASA scientist, Dylan Hunt, is revived from suspended animation in the post-nuclear war United States. In Planet Earth, Dylan is now a sworn member of PAX, the colony of people who revived him. Dylan and his PAX team find another colony which is ruled by women and where all men are slaves. He is captured and sold as a slave, but escapes and organizes a rebellion. Dylan once again has a profound influence in the new world that he finds himself in, in the year 2233.
So many Star Trek Births on this date, also born today was Gene Roddenberry the Star Trek universe creator, and Jonathan Frakes aka William T. Riker from The Next Generation.
