William Campbell, Judith Campbell Exner's first husband dies.

She was known as Judith Immoor when Campbell married her at age 18 in 1952.  

Campbell as Koloth, on the left in the 
episode "The Trouble with Tribbles." 
Tribbles squeal when they get near a Klingon
and helped to unmask an undercover Klingon agent.

Campbell  played a Klingon in the most beloved episode of the original series, "The Trouble with Tribbles," a role he reprised on an episode of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine entitled, "Blood Oath."  

But he is best remembered for his role as Trelane in another Star Trek episode, "The Squire of Gothos." Trelane is retroactively seen as a Q, a race of near omnipotent beings one of which played by John de Lancie bedeviled Captain Jean luc Picard played by Patrick Stewart in Star Trek: The Next Generation. 

Condolences to his family and friends.
