Wonder what the 1.1 overhead was at that point? Would they have been charging STARFLEET ACADEMY development to TUC? Nobody had used up a pay-or-play either, as Bennett's contract was already up before he departed.
I haven't gone through the budget line by line, so I can't be sure. There is $1.1 million of producer's overhead indicated in the detailed budget ($600,000 for Jaffe/Meyer, $400,000 for Konner/Rosenthal, and $100,000 for Winter), but without looking in more detail I can't say if this figure is included in the overall cost or not (the thing is a 48 page document, after all).

On the other hand, the Winter memo I previously mentioned (which outlines a budget for TUC which is much more substantial than that of the final picture) includes a list of several expenditures for the aborted Academy project, which total $1,320,000.
