Hartlines is a fanzine about the actress Mariette Hartley. It includes non-fiction articles about her background and the roles she played. The fan club issued Hartlines three times a year.

Among her other roles, Mariette Hartley played Zarabeth in the Star Trek: The Original Series episode "All Our Yesterdays".

The editor notes that this "isn't a 'rah-rah-isn't-she-fabulous-isn't-she-beautiful' venture, but rather a serious attempt to promote Mariette and her work."

Reactions and Reviews

Rusty Hancock sent me (WOW) all three of the HARTLINES that have been published. He [sic] even went so far as to photocopy all the pages of #1 (amounting to 4O) because he didn't have any copies of it on hand, and pasted in new photographs.

Yes, photographs— the most unique feature of HARTLINES are the 2x3, 1x2, and postage stamp-size glossy photographs of Ms. Hartley from all of the many television and film jobs she's had. And she has had quite a bit of work besides her one appearance in the Star Trek episode, "All'Our Yesterdays". She's been in other Roddenberry creations, other TV shows, and numerous commercials. In fact, HARTLINES is essentially lots of news, reviews and plot summaries of the things she's been doing. Mariette has been (among other things) on Barnaby Jones, Streets of San Francisco, and a spokesman for Bell Telephone. And, of course, she's been co-chairman of the Screen Actors Guild Womens Image Committee.

Randy [sic] is starting his second year's production with HARTLINES #4. For $2.50, members receive three publications and an intro packet with biography and credits, photo membership card, and an 8x10 photo of Mariette. And Randy is starting to work on a special issue on "All Our Yesterdays", and later one on "Genesis II". Also, a #5 supplement. Randy emphasizes that HARTLINES is not primarily a Trek auxiliary, but a zine just about/concerning Mariette Hartley. Printing is pretty good in all three issues, with very good mimeo and offset covers. [1]
