Re: Episode of the Week : The Naked Time


You sometimes hear that this was supposed to be a two part episode, with Tomorrow Is Yesterday being the second part. I was present when someone asked Bob Justman if this was correct, and he categorically denied it, saying it would not have been practical due to uncertainty over which part would have had its optical effects completed first. He went on to emphasise that getting any show to air in the first season on time was an around the clock effort.
"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.
