Re: Star trek final frontier directors cut finished
It was Bennett who looked through all of TOS, not Meyer. He and Jack Sowards devised Carol & the son, but originally she was going to be the woman from THE DEADLY YEARS, Janet Wallace.
I don't think the 'little blonde lab tech' is anything more than a coincidence.
Thanks for the behind-the-scenes trivia. Just the same, the "little blonde lab tech" coincidence is a much better fit than Janet Wallace. She admitted to still wanting Kirk very much, which doesn't fit with Carol Marcus' attitudes in TWOK.
(Kirk really sticks it to Janet with the "love, or a going away present?" remark. Ouch. That one went in all the way up to the handle.)
"No, I better not look. I just might be in there."
