Bjo Trimble was the original Star Trek: TOS BNF and supporter of the show. She and her husband, John Trimble, assisted Gene Roddenberry in setting up Lincoln Enterprises and was put in charge of answering the deluge of fan mail. She edited newsletters, wrote articles in many zines, and started the letter-writing campaign called Star Trek Lives! to bring the show back after it had been threatened with cancellation. Trimble also created The Star Trek Concordance with Dorothy Jones Heydt.
She talks about her experiences in On The Good Ship Enterprise: My 15 Years With Star Trek, published in 1983.
Trimble, never shy about her role in Star Trek history, used it to fan interest in her later publications. From flyers for Space-Time Continuum: "Edited by the original 'SAVE STAR TREK' lady, Bjo Trimble" and "from Bjo Trimble, the fan who saved Star Trek."
