Was Helen Noel's character officially transferred off the ship after the events in DAGGER, or just forgotten? For the James Blish adaptation of the episode, I believe she was transferred off.
By coincidence, I mentioned that she had transferred over to the Reliant i
n my latest Trek book. (The Weight of Worlds,
p. 26, if anyone's interested.)
Didn't know about the Blish thing. (It's been decades since I read those books.)
