Became world famous writing for 'Star Trek' TOS, but I was stunned to see her name associated with TWWW in the obit above. Per IMDB, she used the name Michael Edwards for her writing credits on "Watery Death" and "Deadly Bubble", a fact that I think eluded all of us. I wonder why she used a pen name for this series?

According to the article, she used her initials, D.C., to avoid discrimination against her as a woman writer. I suppose she used masculine pen names for the same reason.
