^I recall that somebody (Harvey?) actually posted the de Forrest notes about the inaccuracies in "Space Seed" somewhere on this BBS just a month or two ago. Too bad the producers ignored them.

Page 13, Scene 27

A Sikh probably. A 'Sikh' is a member of the Sikh religion, not a racial type, any more than a Roman Catholic is a racial type. They are distinguish-able physically only because one of the tenets of their religion is that men do not shave or cut their hair.
Catholics as a part of their religion are not allowed to use birth control. Yet at my local Catholic Church no one has 12 children.
I know about 5 Catholic people who have been married twice without being excommunicated. I don't know personally any Sikh who have cut their hair though but sometimes you have to adjust your religious beliefs to live in the 'real world' unless you are very lucky.
