Everytime I read something by GR, it strikes me all the descriptions use the word 'lovely'.
Not so long ago I read the TMP novelization, everything is lovely. Kirk's GF is lovely, the Enterprise is lovely (IIRC, it's "lovelier" than before), Ilia is lovely, things are lovely. When VGer and Decker go to the other dimension, it's described as "it then became too lovely for them to comprehend".
Some days ago here at the bbs someone posted the original Writer's Guide which I never read before. Randy is lovely, other characters are lovely, a PARKLAND is lovely...
Anyone noticed this too? What was with the man?
