Yvonne Craig and the Las Vegas Star Trek Convention

In a previous posting on December 26, 2010 entitled "The Villains of Batman," I mentioned Yvonne Craig who played Batgirl in the series.  I promised my readers that I would find out what she’s been up to lately.  Here’s what I’ve discovered. 

Although Yvonne Craig is best known for her appearances in 26 episodes of the Batman series, she has over 150 television guest appearances to her credit, including Mod Squad, Love, American Style, Star Trek, Emergency, Kojak, The Courtship of Eddie’s Father and It Takes a Thief. 

Yvonne is 73 years old now and she has been doing some voice acting.  I checked her website at and it listed the appearances she will be making in 2011.  I learned that in August she will be a guest at the Creation Las Vegas Show which will be celebrating the 45th anniversary of Star Trek.  That’s right, folks, Star Trek will be 45 years old. 
For all you Trekkies out there, Creation Entertainment’s Official Star Trek Convention runs from August 11-14, 2011 in Las Vegas, Nevada. For more information, check out the website below.

Confidential to Yvonne Craig:
Hey, Yvonne, if you are reading this, I’d like to hear from you.  Send me an e-mail and I’ll be happy to publish what you have to say on TV Banter.

EDITOR'S UPDATE (September 8, 2015):  Yvonne Craig passed away on August 17, 2015 after a two-year battle with breast cancer.  She died at her home in Pacific Palisades, California at the age of 78.  R.I.P. Yvonne.
