This resulted in several rather inexplicable snips to existing scenes, such as Kirk's second, waspish, "Viewer off!!" in the crew Rec-deck scene, McCoy's "...Or a crew of a thousand, ten miles tall!" during the entry to V'Ger, etc.
The ten miles line is only in the SE from TV, not the theatrical. Why he cut it in the first place is the question ...
Sorry I haven't been chiming in on these TMP threads, but I've been really sick for about 10 days and not doing much of anything. Will try to check in more often, apologies to all.
