Re: Whatever happened to Starship Exeter?

According to the book Star Trek: The Original Series 365 (p. 236), the ameoba was created was by Frank Van der Veer, and created was made by placing colored liquid (most likely mineral oil) between two closely spaced sheets of glass, and by moving the glass to make the liquid undulate.

As to the original Murasaki 312, it looks to be a smoke element.
