As usual, you are right Greg. I will amend my previous posts to be less hostile. Thank you, and Bixby, for your measured and reasonable response.
And a point of correction: Mr. David Gerrold directed the principal photography for the "Origins"/"The Protracted Man" shoot for Star Trek Phase II
in the Summer of 2010. Mr. Vic Mignogna was cast as Cadet James T. Kirk's father Commander George Kirk--who figures prominently in the story. Actually, Vic (and Mr. Chris Hart) were pressed into service to direct a few pick-up shots for the episode later in the fall of that year.
