Re: Kirk, the PD, "The Omega Glory" and "Miri"
Lucas wasn't fired. He was contracted to produce the rest of the second season after Coon left, and he did so. Roddenberry took on the producing chores for the last episode, "Assignment: Earth," because it was a backdoor pilot.
Presumably, Roddenberry submitted "The Omega Glory" for Emmy consideration because it was the one episode that season in which he had sole writing credit.
Sorry if I keep echoing your posts. You are obviously quicker on the draw!
Don't you think I know that !?! There was.... but not anymore!!
