We watched "The Pirates of Orion" the other day and it struck me how easily this story could have been a TOS episode.

I like the Orions' uniforms and the fact that they had green skin.
Err, except the Orions in TPoI had pale blue skin; it was their uniforms that were green.


Curious as to why the Orions are referred to as "O-ree-ons", rather than the familiar pronunciation.
I think I heard once that someone (Shatner?) thought it sounded too much like "O'Ryan." But I don't know for sure.
