Thanks for the kind words.
Yeah, "send Cutty first" was mine. We had a lot of digging at Cutty going on in the script, but it was too much . Seeing it in the rough cut, it made Harris look like a bitch - she's his superior officer, he never does much in response other than shrug or look annoyed, whatever Spock/Bones "homage" was supposed to be going on there wasn't happening. So there are only one or two of those lines left in the show and yet it's still more than clear, IMAO, that they don't get along well. Less is more - or, at least, less is more than enough.
