Arlene Martel, who played Spock's Vulcan bride T'Pring in the Star Trek Original Series episode "Amok Time," passed away on Tuesday, August 12, 2014, Trek News reports. She was 78.

Martel was remembered on social media by a number of former co-stars and collaborators, including Leonard Nimoy.

Martel's friend Marc Cushman, author of the book These Are The Voyages, confirmed the news via the book's official Facebook page. She apparently died following complications from a recent heart attack.

At the end of June, she and Cushman appeared in Santa Monica, California, to promote the book. It would be her final public appearance.
