(1930-2015) US film/tv producer and screenwriter, Harve Bennett was an almost legendary figure in sf television production and writing, and fulfilled both those roles on The Invisible Man (1975-1976), The Bionic Woman (1976-1978), Gemini Man (1976) (see The Invisible Man), The Six Million Dollar Man (1973-1978) and Time Trax (1993-1994), among others. His metier was the creation of populist, action-packed, comparatively routine sf adventure. Bennett likewise produced and wrote or co-wrote screenplays for most of the Star Trek franchise movies: Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan (1982), Star Trek III: The Search for Spock (1984), Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home (1986) and Star Trek V: The Final Frontier (1989).
