Re: New Book about TOS: These Are The Voyages

Hm. Then it looks like instead of parting his hair on his left side like in "The Naked Time," Bruce Hyde seems to have parted his hair on the opposite side for this "The Man Trap" pick-up shot. He seems to have put in blue contact lenses, too.

I think the book is simply wrong about this. As you indicate, the scene in question never shows us the helm station, only the navigator. I think the author simply mistook Budd Albright for Bruce Hyde.

It can't be that Hyde was sitting out of frame, unless the author is using words like "glimpse" and "shot" rather lazily.
The error is that Riley was always at the navigator station in The Naked Time, not the helm. In The Man Trap, at 13m56s you can clearly see Bruce Hyde (or a Bruce Hyde lookin' dude) at the nav seat as the camera dollies past. This is the "chili peppers" scene.
