Re: George Takei and Second Two of TOS
I always felt George was very lucky to get his seat back seeing the show was under enormous budgetary pressure at this point, and the ship seemed to sail on just fine without him for six months.
You have to give a lot of credit to Roddenberry, Justman and the newly appointed producer Lucas for letting him come back in the circumstances.
