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?
The Wiki says the story is by Gene Roddenberry...

But he didn't write the final draft of the script, so we really don't know where the no female captains thing came from.
