Star Trek Writer, Producer Harve Bennett Dies At 84

Harve Bennett, the producer of four Star Trek feature films, died Wednesday, February 25th at the age of 84.

“He was a remarkable man and he was unpretentious and self-effacing. I don’t think there would be a Star Trek franchise without him. He rescued it. He’s endangered of being lost in the shuffle, but he’s the guy who figured it out,” said Star Trek director Nicholas Meyer, who worked with Bennett on The Wrath Of Khan and The Voyage Home.

“He watched all 79 of those original episodes and he was the one who plucked out Khan,” Meyer added.

His producer credits include Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, Star Trek III: The Search For Spock, Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home, Star Trek V: The Final Frontier along with television series The Six Million Dollar Man and The Bionic Woman.

Bennett’s death comes less than a week after Leonard Nimoy, who died on February 27 at the age of 84.

Our thoughts go out to Bennett’s family, friends and fans. May his memory continue to live long and prosper.
