Re: Star Trek: Phase II's "The Holiest Thing" - Delayed
yes, the issue was TPM himself wasn't important to the E crew...one of the main points that the story editors back then were sticklers on. Basically, "why do we care?" Making TPM Kirk's father was supposed to address that issue. It was the special effects that got it rejected, Gerrold made the note about the story problem later in his book. So, yup, you're right.
