Re: Fact-Checking Inside Star Trek: The Real Story

^I know David Gerrold was driven out by Maizlish's behavior and attitudes, and was so bitter that he spent the next two decades or so finding ways to insult Maizlish in every book he wrote. I gather that Justman and Fontana chose to leave because of the way they were treated, but I don't know how much of that was Maizlish specifically and how much was just Roddenberry and his entourage in general.

I seem to recall that part of what made them leave was that Maizlish was doing script rewrites, something he shouldn't have been allowed to do under Writer's Guild rules. I don't have a source for that, though.
