Re: Star Trek Concepts Originating in TAS

Oh my goodness, I'm certain I forgot half of the concepts, but I'll give it a try.

Christopher has already mentioned the "Engineering Core". Parts of the same animation cel were used in "Practical Joker" to show the entry to the "Computer Core". "Engineering Core" was at least mentioned in two different TAS episodes.

Then we have, of course, the holodeck from "Practical Joker".

TAS showed first that the "mouth" of the Klingon Battlecruiser could fire energy projectiles and I think the final design of the TMP intermix shaft was - as strange as this may sound - actually inspired by Klingon technology seen in "More Tribbles, More Troubles".
