Good point! I guess the convenient thing about Kirk and Spock's predicament in the actual episode is that Spock needed to spend most of his time indoors to repair the tricorder and finish the pneumonic memory circuit. Thelin had similar skills and expertise, so it wouldn't have been a stretch to believe he'd have done the same thing. I just wonder how Kirk might have explained his blue complexion to the curious Edith.
