Re: "Apotheosis" - the unproduced episode?
I will admit, I was surprised to see "Commander Ryker" on a script from as late as 1988. I didn't want to be the one to call it out, but I am dubious.
And the script looks nothing like an official TNG script... it looks like it came off an actual typewriter. They used word processors on TNG.
EDIT: And you're right, according to the ST: TNG Companion
, Ryker became Riker sometime between the February 4th, 1987 revision of the writers' guide and the final version dated March 23rd. Meaning no teleplay was ever written with his name spelled "Ryker."
