Re: Illia as a TOS cast member?

With Ilia as a permanent crew member youŽd be facing the problem of her (sexual) attractiveness: As soon as she appeared on the bridge in TMP all men started acting like dorky schoolboys. So either theyŽd have had to come up with some in-universe explanation that IliaŽs "influence" somehow wears off after a while, or youŽd have ended up with a bridge crew permanently drooling on their consoles

That being said, I liked her in TMP and she fit well into the overall "mood" of the movie. For a fourth season of TOS however, I think she wouldŽve been a tad too boring as a character.
