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.
