That doesn't reasonably add up to $288,049.00 (the budget in question).

In comparison, "The City on the Edge of Forever" cost $250,396.71. The first plot cost $615781.56, and the second pilot cost $354,974.00.
Well, your info does add credence to Justman's claim of "City on the Edge of Forever" being a budget problem.

Again, I would profer the point some of the disparity between "Assignment Earth" and "City on the Edge of Forever" stemmed from a company wide change in billing practices due to the sale of Desilu to Gulf-Western whereby some goods & services that were provided free of charge in season one had to be paid for in seasons two and three. It was Robert Justman, I believe, who said something to the effect that they had gone from being members of the family to paying tenents. Budgets swelled because of it.

Yes, Virginia, this post is an expression of my opinion.
