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

That 'the lights go on' part makes me think of TUC when Valeris is unmasked in sickbay as the traitor.

Can imagine TOS Kirk saying the same words TUC Kirk does, "I'd rather you didn't," just vis a vis the scalpel and McCoy.

If they really had decided to rip this off for TNG, I think the ship would be going through a MUF field while the scalpel thing happened, so you could have a lamely staged fight scene to 'up' the action quotient a bit. Either that or one of the sleepers would start playing country on his guitar, then disarm the scalper-holder with a rap on the head from the neck of the 'tar.
