Herb Solow has died at 89. The original Star Trek series would have gone nowhere without him.

I knew him and his wife while they were in Wales. He was a kind soul, but there was also a quiet strength to the man that I admired.

RIP Herb Solow 1930-2020

As head of TV production at Desilu starting in 1964, he developed and sold Star Trek and Mission: Impossible.

This was his credit card on TOS. Bob Justman, who chose the still image, thought Balok’s “wildly glaring eyes” were “a fitting tribute.”

Awww man! RIP to Herb Solow. My first exposure to anything ‘behind the scenes’ in TV/Film production was his Inside Star Trek book in 1996. My dad bought it for me in hardback, I’m sure he had no idea what it even was. It was huge and heavy (I was 12!) and Herb Solow was great.
