I'm very surprised when its denied.
And I thought "The Doomsday Machine" was based on Saberhagen's original BERSERKER anthology, but Spinrad says he was thinking MOBY DICK.

Likewise, I thought "Operation: Annihilate!" was based on THE PUPPET MASTERS, and "For The World Is Hollow And I Have Touched The Sky" inspired by ORPHANS OF THE SKY (serialized as "Universe" and "Common Sense")—to say nothing of "Balance of Terror" and THE ENEMY BELOW. Did THE STRANGE CASE OF DR. JEKYLL AND MR. HYDE inspire the (brilliant) variation on the theme in "The Enemy Within"?

TREK is popular because it doesn't exist in a vacuum—figuratively speaking.
