Angela Williams, the Chief Medical Officer of the USS Valkyrie, passed away today. She was an avid cos-player and loved hanging out with her friends. I remember seeing her playing the science officer engaging the kids at the Seventh Fleet booth at FanX trying to get them involved with science. Using interaction and hands on experiments she showed that Star Trek could be more than just a TV show. She will be missed. A saying that I heard a friend say recently: “May her memory always be a blessing.”
