Clark: Arena’s Gorn

Thursday, January 20th, 2011

Star Trek fans know Bobby Clark as the Gorn who took on Captain Kirk (and lost) in the popular original series episode Arena.

Clark actually appeared more than once on Star Trek, due to his acquaintance with director Joseph Pevney. “I was in The Apple, Mirror, Mirror, The Return of the Archons and Arena,” said Clark. Arena was the first one. I got Star Trek because I’d done a lot of work on other shows with a director named Joseph Pevney. We knew each other. We got along real. He knew how I worked and so forth and so on, and I knew what he wanted and needed. When he and Gene Roddenberry talked about Arena, they of course talked about the Gorn, and Joseph knew who he wanted to play that character. When the time came, he called me in, and that was it.”

Another Trek Editor Gets The Ax

Wednesday, August 26th, 2009

Just months after the last round of Simon & Schuster layoffs, in which Senior Editor Marco Palmieri lost his job, word is that another Star Trek editor has been downsized.

Times are tough in these troubled economic times and people are keeping their wallets closed other than for necessities. Simon & Schuster sales for the first six months of 2009 were down 11.4% and profits were down 76%.

As a result, it appears that another round of downsizing has occurred at Simon & Schuster, with Pocket Book editor Margaret Clark being the latest to get the ax.

Star Trek literature fans will surely be sorry to see Clark go and wish her all luck in her future endeavors.
