I'm skeptical that NBC ever assigned Roddenberry to develop a Mudd show. I suspect that's more Roddenberry-generated myth making. If anything, I bet he pitched the idea but they didn't bite.
Yeah. The idea that Roddenberry was too busy to develop a television show under assignment, and so just let it drop, doesn't pass the sniff test.
That NBC would even ASK doesn't pass the sniff test to me.
Did NBC ask for any spin-off to Star Trek, or was Assignment: Earth and spinning-off a show all Roddenberry's idea? The usual sources don't say.
