Speaking of coloring issues in the DVD release of "The Time Trap" -- does anyone know if Devna's skin color was altered? The original Star Trek Concordance refers to Devna as "golden-skinned" (in its lexicon entry for "Orion colonies"), but in the DVD version she's pale green, as one would expect of an Orion.
I don't have a definitive answer, but I honestly remember her being the same or a very similar pale green during the first run in the 70's. I remember that pale green as always being noticeably paler than either Vina's or Marta's green.

If one looks at the picture of Devna at http://en.memory-alpha.org/wiki/Orion, it does look somewhat on the yellow side, so I can see how some might call that golden, though I'd call it pale green myself.

Incidentally, the Orions in The Pirates of Orion were--I think--always pale blue, although that was an episode I missed first run and had to pick up in the 80's on Nickelodeon.
