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, 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.
