In The Savage Curtain
, Kirk orders a presidential honor detachment to greet the alien who appears as Abraham Lincoln. When Lincoln materialized on the transporter, and as he steps off, I noticed the guards pointing their phasers at Lincoln.
Granted it was a symbolic affair, but is it customary for guards to point their weapons directly at
I accept the kinda cheap, tinny-sounding 'taped' music that was played for the event, but the weapon thing seemed strange.
It makes sense: Lee Bergere had to deliver his line "If those are weapons, please lower them" line. The scene needed to blocked so that the guards' phasers were drawn and leveled at Lincoln.
