Re: Fact-Checking Inside Star Trek: The Real Story

Fascinating insight, thanks Harvey!

I think "Sleeping Beauty" was a proper and good title for a script addressing cryogenic freeze / suspended animation but the impression I got was that essentially it was a murder mystery which somewhat "betrayed" the original premise.

Where there at least some remarks from the protagonists what a twisted irony it was to have come that far (i.e. survive until the 22nd or 23rd Century) and then die hours later because of an assasination?

That kind of irony could then have been emphasized if the Federation still had the death penalty (according to "The Ultimate Computer" ) and the murderer therefore would not have survived the arrival in the future, either.
