Bjo Trimble – The Matriarch of Star Trek Fandom

Who is Bjo Trimble? It is not an exaggeration to say that Bjo Trimble is the Godmother of fandom. Unless you were watching Star Trek when it first aired in 1966, if you consider yourself a Star Trek fan today you owe that fact to Bjo Trimble. Star Trek was facing cancellation after its second season due to falling ratings. Bjo and her husband John started a massive letter writing campaign (there was no internet or email in the Sixties) to save the third season of Star Trek. NBC was convinced to produce and air the third season by the outpouring of support led by Bjo. Because of the third season being made, there were enough episodes of Star Trek when it was finally cancelled for it to air in syndication (i.e. they licensed the rights to air re-runs of the show to local television stations). As a result of this widespread exposure, Star Trek’s audience gradually grew and become the pop culture classic that it is today. Had that third season not been saved, the re-runs would likely not have aired, and many of us would know little or nothing about Star Trek. Thank you, Bjo!
