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

I like the Orions' uniforms and the fact that they had green skin.
... but I remember them as blue.

Not crazy about their ship design, though.
This is one of my favorites in all Trek.

Curious as to why the Orions are referred to as "O-ree-ons", rather than the familiar pronunciation.
Yeah, that's funny. William Shatner wasn't coached, I guess.

In centuries past, the vowel "i" historically sounded like our long "e", so I suppose someone not knowing how the word was pronounced might think it was "meant" to be pronounced that way. Perhaps in ancient times, it was?!?
