(written from a Production point of view)
Norm Prescott (31 January 1927 – 2 July 2005; age 78) was an associate of Filmation, and as such was a producer for Star Trek: The Animated Series. For his work on this show, Prescott, along with his production partner Lou Scheimer, won a Daytime Emmy Award in the field of "Outstanding Entertainment Children's Series." Prescott also voiced a Romulan crewman in the animated episode "The Practical Joker".
Prescott and Scheimer have produced many popular animated TV programs under the Filmation banner, including The New Adventures of Superman (1966-1970), Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids (1972-1984) and He-Man and the Masters of the Universe (1983-1985). The latter program was turned into a motion picture featuring Star Trek: Voyager's Robert Duncan McNeill and DS9 guest star Frank Langella.
Under the pseudonym of "Jeff Michael" (actually the names of Prescott's two sons Jeff and Michael), Prescott also co-composed the music for most of Filmation's programs, including Star Trek: The Animated Series.
