FACT: Colm Meaney wrote the first draft of City on the Edge of Forever at the age of twelve, but gave it to Harlan Ellison because he thought he needed the break.
Ellison, however, changed Meany's script in one small detail. Meany wanted Kirk to save Edith, but Ellison changed it so that the captain froze in indecision. It created a rift between the two, and they have not spoken to this day. Proof? Have you ever seen Ellison and Meany in the same photograph?!
