Fabien D. Tordjmann is an editor of French descent who worked on all three seasons of Star Trek: The Original Series.

Star Trek was his first assignment as film editor, and afterward he went on to edit a number of feature film and television projects. Among these were episodes of Starsky and Hutch (starring David Soul) and The Six Million Dollar Man, and the 1973 horror movie Scream Blacula Scream, which starred William Marshall. Early in his career, Tordjmann worked as assistant cameraman on famed French actor/director Jacques Tati's 1951 classic comedy, Mr. Hulot's Holiday.

According to Robert Justman, Tordjmann was the most difficult of the Original Series film editors. Practicing "advanced film theory", he thought of editing as an art form of it's own, and always came up with flashy, experimental cuts, and Justman had to convince him to use simple, classic methods of editing. It was a common sight of Tordjmann stomping on film in the editing room, shouting Merde! Merde! Merde! (Shit! Shit! Shit!). (Inside Star Trek: The Real Story)
