(written from a Production point of view)
Patricia Smith Lasell (20 February 1930 – 2 January 2011; age 80) was the actress who played Doctor Sara Kingsley in the Star Trek: The Next Generation episode "Unnatural Selection". She was born in New Haven, Connecticut. Her costume from this episode was sold off on the It's A Wrap! sale and auction on eBay. 
Her first television appearance came in a 1953 episode of Kraft Television Theatre, co-starring TOS guest actor James Gregory. She has since made guest appearances on such TV programs as Studio One (including one episode with Ian Wolfe and another with Skip Homeier), The Twilight Zone (in an episode co-starring Bill Mumy), My Favorite Martian (starring Ray Walston), Mission: Impossible (in an episode co-starring Leonard Nimoy, Sharon Acker, and James B. Sikking), and Quincy, M. E. (featuring Robert Ito and Garry Walberg). She also became a regular performer on The Debbie Reynolds Show and The Bob Newhart Show (the latter featuring John Fiedler).
In 1974, she made an uncredited appearance in the unsold pilot for Gene Roddenberry's proposed series, Planet Earth. The pilot also starred Majel Barrett, Ted Cassidy, and Diana Muldaur. She also had a role in the epic 1979 mini-series Roots: The Next Generations, as did fellow Star Trek performers Bernie Casey, Percy Rodriguez, John Rubinstein, Jason Wingreen, Bruce French, Brock Peters, Paul Winfield, Logan Ramsey, Albert Hall, and Bill Quinn.
Smith also has a few feature films to her credit, most notably The Spirit of St. Louis (1957), Save the Tiger (1973, with Biff Elliot), and Mad City (1997, with David Clennon). Smith died on 2 January 2011 at the age of 80.
