Re: Kirk, the PD, "The Omega Glory" and "Miri"

Looking forward to seeing what kind of score The Omega Glory pulls on our weekly episode ratings once we get up to it. Opinion seems divided on the TOS forum, as it was at Desilu.

Roddenberry not only thought it was an Emmy-winner, he also let it be the only TOS episode to get the View-Master treatment. But on the other hand I recall a story about one of the editing team almost coming to blows with Shatner after the editor complained to him about the quality of the episode, and some of Shatner's acting in it.

The great man sure gives it his all here :
"Sometimes I get the feeling the only way we could achieve a STAR TREK segment on budget would be to have 60 minutes of Mr. Spock playing kazoo solo as Captain Kirk holds him in his arms while standing in a telephone booth."
Bob Justman, 1967.
