Re: If you wrote the next one, which original episode would you revisi

The whole episode [The Way to Eden] would have been much better off filmed as it was supposed to be (as 'Joanna') rather than what was put on screen and transmitted.
"Joanna" does sound good.

Originally, the teleplay was titled "Joanna", and was written by D. C. Fontana, the title character being Dr. McCoy's daughter, who would become romantically involved with Captain Kirk. Later, she was changed to Irina, and Chekov, instead, was made her foil. Fontana's script was so heavily rewritten that she asked her name to be removed from it and replaced with Michael Richards, a pseudonym she also used on the episode "That Which Survives".
