Among the members of the Star Trek family we lost in 2009 was Ricardo Montalban. Science fiction also lost writers Philip Jose Farmer (top left) and J.G. Ballard (bottom r), as well as actors in two 1950s s-f film classics, James Whitmore (bottom l) in Them! and Gene Barry (top r) in War of the Worlds. May they rest in peace, and their work live long and prosper.
