A quick reread of this thread and I think that the "pet theory" that Robert Comsol
is laying at Greg Jein's feet is USS Constitution = NCC-1700
, not Enterprise is Constitution-class
. I could be wrong though.
Second Revised Final Draft for "Space Seed,"
So does anyone know if this is the final shooting script? Was this an idea - like Ellison's drug dealer on the Enterprise - introduced by a writer and nixed at the end by Roddenberry, et al
? It would be interesting to known when the decision was made to not show those graphics (script rewrite, review of dailies, editing room)
