Inside Secrets of the Making of STII:TWOK and "Space Seed"
 
first of all if you live near the Chicago area:
They're giving a talk today March 21 at 7 PM at the Vernon Hills Library in Vernon Hills, IL about this.

Quote:

The Tenutos, who are professors at the College of Lake County in Grayslake, IL, are long-time Star Trek fans. But they were visiting University of Iowa for another reason, and discovered that Wrath of Khan director Nicholas Meyer had donated his papers, including script drafts, memos and photographs, to the University's library. The Tenutos became obsessed with discovering the details of Wrath of Khan's genesis, including stuff they hadn't found in the official "making of" book. And then, they decided to visit Los Angeles and look at Gene Roddenberry's papers at UCLA, and the CBS/Paramount archives for similar info about the episode "Space Seed," Khan's debut.
In looking at both Khan stories, the Tenutos were motivated by Meyer's dictum that creativity thrives with limitations -- and they wanted to see how the limitations that both productions faced made them more creative.

I wish I could have gone. I'm about 60 miles or so south of there. Some of those earlier drafts sounded a little bit like the new Star Trek Into Darkness coming out.

They got into the CBS/Paramount archives? Neat.

(Although, to be picky, it wasn't NBC's research company that "suggested changing the character name to Govin Bahadur Singh." That was de Forest Research, which was based on the Desilu lot and employed by the studio, not the Network.)

I wonder if anyone recorded the talk, or if the text of it is available?
