^Well, that was the idea behind the Original Series
thing that John Ordover tried to get going some years back, wasn't it? To do a "Lower Decks" kind of thing focusing on developing story arcs for the supporting characters, interwoven among retellings of the TOS episodes. Except the first trilogy in that, The Janus Gate
, didn't really fit that description and didn't really tie together with the second trilogy, Errand of Vengeance
. So the plan was aborted before it really got anywhere.
