Laurence N. Wolfe (4 November 192924 October 2017; age 87) wrote the story for the Star Trek: The Original Series second season episode "The Ultimate Computer", which was turned into a teleplay by D.C. Fontana. Wolfe was a mathematics teacher, who wrote the original story out of his fascination with computers, but included nothing of the cast, prompting Fontan's involvement in the rewrite. [1]

Over two decades later, Wolfe wrote the play Sweet Victory (1989), "a story about Clarence Darrow's last case, in which he defends a black doctor and his family charged with murder," a play regarded by one critic as being "so humorless and indignant that it pleads for an ironic interpretation." (L.A. Weekly, 4 May 1989, p. 127)
