Re: Trek trivia detail items -- do you know these?

^That sounds a bit questionable, given what a huge coincidence it would be that the main character of Roddenberry's The Lieutenant also had Tiberius as his middle name. And it would hardly be the first time that someone's taken credit for inventing something that was really someone else's idea. (I've heard several people, including Doctor Who's co-creator Sydney Newman and its original star William Hartnell, take credit for the idea that the Doctor could regenerate and thus be recast with a different actor.) Heck, Gerrold himself starts that reminiscence with "I think," so he's acknowledging that he's not entirely sure it happened that way.
