Re: George Takei and Second Two of TOS

I'm not sure why Roddenberry contacted Doohan directly, rather than going through his agent, which would be the standard practice then and now. Perhaps it was due to inexperience (in 1966, Rodenberry had only produced a handful of pilots and one season of The Lieutenant). Perhaps, as you speculate, he was attempting to bait Doohan into leaving the role for some reason.
