Well put on all of them, and I particularly agree with #7 (and have posted about it in the past). The current comic book version of Batgirl is heavily influenced by Yvonne Craig’s version of the character.
“What's important is that the world know that all visitors to these teeming shores are safe, be they peasant or king.”

The 13th Dimension site appears to be down, unfortunately.

My hobbies include gazing at the Siren and doing her bidding, evil or otherwise.

She's the best part of the third season, no question about it.
While I thought Yvonne was a kind and really wonderfully genuine person, I didn't like how the character was handled. It would have been so much better if she'd been more of a Mrs Peel type, someone who took no nonsense when it came to fighting. Dozier's Chauvinism was showing when he only allowed her to ballet kick the baddies.
