Re: Could they have picked up "Phase II" again at any time?

Clearly William Shatner was still willing to do TV as was evidenced by TJ Hooker but I wonder what his per episode salary for that series and if Phase II could've offered something similar?

I purchased the book published about Phase II in 1997 and, IIRC, they had to prepare for the possibility that William Shatner might not have stuck around. If Phase II went forward, it could've just as easily have eventually become about Decker and Xon.

I'm a bit surprised that more of the Phase II scripts weren't recycled for TNG's second season to give them even more of a head start. At the very least, using one more Phase II script at the beginning would've done away with the need for having a clip show like "Shades of Gray" at the end.
