Re: Space Seed Lost Scenes

...Of course, thematically "Space Seed" could use a scene or two where the inferiority of Kirk's genes is highlighted. So what if he's nearsighted - he can still defeat a physically superior specimen with his hands tied behind his back, because, well, he's the good guy and fights with a pure heart! (Unless that's genetically inferior, too, and has been replaced by a machine... But apparently that scene was among the ones cut, and had to wait for two decades to see use. )

But even then, it would be odd that Kirk would have to receive tutoring on the use of glasses. Perhaps in an ideal world, "Space Seed" would have launched a story arc of sorts where Kirk's age gradually begins to show, Shatner ceases to wear the wig, etc...
