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

not sure if it is in his CITY book or a video magazine interview, but at one point Ellison indicated the reason Cordwainer Bird didn't stay on was that Roddenberry insisted on keepin the name for SF marquee value and the threat was that he would do what he could to blacklist Ellison. While that shouldn't carry much weight, remember that Ellison was already persona non grata at ABC over the two Adrian Samish incidents (Samish supposedly killed his BATMAN script around this same time.)
