Women not being allowed to be Starfleet captains (I detest Turnabout Intruder). Granted, Roddenberry originally wanted a female XO, but that was turned down by the network execs as too radical.
I always took Lester's ramblings as that of someone who was plain crazy.
That's a logical way to rationalize it, but Roddenberry did allegedly state that it is meant to mean women aren't starship captains. Of course, if that's true, it's been rightfully ignored since Enterprise showed us female captains predating TOS.
Did Roddenberry have much to do with Star Trek by the time "Turnabout Intruder" was made?
