Yep. They were definitely regretting putting her on the 13-week contract, and for playing the Kirk/Rand attraction too strong, too often, too early.
"They were definitely regretting"? What's your source for that?
I can't quote one, but an interview with Roddenberry about Whitney's departure. The cast budget couldn't afford a character that wasn't needed in every episode.
