Re: Bread & Circuses - Kirk's Folly

One of the things which is most intriguing about 'The Galileo Seven' is the way it splits up Spock and Kirk, but (almost uniquely for TOS) it leaves Kirk on the Enterprise bridge dealing with the bureaucratic nonsense instead of being the one down on the planet in the thick of things. It's a surprisingly forward-thinking plot strand, especially in light of TNG making such arrangements a part of the regular format, and it works really well to the point where I kinda wish they'd been able to do it more often in TOS.

But hey, Shatner's the star with contractual benefits, so what you gonna do?
