…Grace Lee Whitney.  Whitney was cut from the show before the first season ended - and the reasons for it remain unclear.  It’s known that Whitney was struggling with alcoholism at the time; but it’s also been said that there were budgetary cuts.  When it was determined that Kirk was not to be a one-woman guy, her value as a love interest went bye-bye, and subsequently so did her job.

That’s not to say Shatner didn’t have eyes for the lovely Yeoman. God knows he could barely pass through a scene without staring longingly at her chest.  No doubt in my mind The Shat was banging the Yeoman.  No doubt whatsoever…

The sad story is that after she was cut from Star Trek, Janice slipped even further into her alcohol addiction.  Years later DeForest Kelley saw her waiting in an unemployment line and got her some small parts in the Star Trek movies.  Janice has since come forward and said that she was sexually assaulted by a Star Trek executive, and this was in no small part why she left the show. Fact or Fiction - we may never know.
