Re: Notes re. The City On The Edge Of Forever....

Having read the first draft script, I can honestly say that Timewalker is correct. The characters are off, and the story is too mystical and "sense of wonder" to be good Star Trek.

I keep saying this about STV, and I'll say it about Harlan Ellison's first draft of COTEOF: it's good science fiction, and a good story, but it's terrible Star Trek.

And of course, STV was also poorly executed.
