Susan Oliver: Star Trek's First Love Interest, The Green Girl

A feature-length documentary about Susan Oliver, known primarily today as Star Trek’s first iconic Green Orion Slave Girl (from the original 1964 Star Trek pilot, reused in the 2-part 1966 episode The Menagerie).

She was a highly- prolific actress of the ’50’s/’60’s/’70’s/’80’s, a record-setting female aviator, an original member of the AFI Directing Workshop for Women, and one of the only women directing major TV shows in the 1980’s.

Tragically taken by cancer in 1990, she’s been inexplicably forgotten by the industry to which she gave so much of herself. This documentary chronicles the remarkable achievements of her all-too-short life.
