Don't put words in my mouth. I never said that it was a mash-up, nor did I say they were acting independently.
You said "TVH is actually a combination of two scripts put together"
, and that is not
Wasn't that Nicholas Meyer who wrote the new script based on all the elements liked from previous attempts, not Bennett?
Yes. I said Bennett pulled in
all the elements he thought worth salvaging from many proposals he had gathered.
And yes, he was working with Meyer by that time. Then Meyer wrote a full script in a hurry that incorporated them all.
