Jean Lisette Aroeste
Jean Lisette Aroeste (born 2 October 1932 in Virginia) is a former U.C.L.A. librarian and Star Trek fan who became one of four writers with no prior television writing credits (David Gerrold, Judy Burns and Joyce Muskat were the other three) to sell scripts to the program.
Her first sale, "Is There in Truth No Beauty?", was an unsolicited script which Star Trek co-producer Robert H. Justman read and recommended to Gene Roddenberry. She then sold the story "A Handful of Dust", which was eventually produced as "All Our Yesterdays" – the second-to-last episode of the original Star Trek series. These two episodes were her only television sales.
