Re: STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS - Grading & Discussion [SPOILERS]

set that bar in 1966 during "The Naked Time" when during a critical orbit both the Chief Engineer and his Assistant (the only two on duty mind you) left because they were both called to the bridge.
That and Engineering only has one door...
