Dorothy Catherine Fontana is a writer and script editor who has worked on Star Trek since its creation in the 1960s. She wrote several episodes from The Original Series, The Animated Series, The Next Generation and Deep Space Nine as well novels, comics and video games.

Fontana's first and only novel to date is Vulcan's Glory which was published 1989. In 1999 she wrote the story for the video game Secret of Vulcan Fury which was ultimately unreleased. In the 2000s she, with her writing partner Derek Chester, wrote the story for a video game for Activision and later two more for Bethesda Softworks.

In 2007 she was interviewed for IDW's behind-the-scenes book Focus on... Star Trek and shortly after she revealed she was working on a five part miniseries for the comics publisher, again written with Derek Chester. She and Chester are also working on a new Star Trek novel and she would like to rework her Secret of Vulcan Fury story into a novel. [1]
