Re: Sci-Fi Channel Special Edition Extras...

By the way, I have been listening to Harlan Ellison's vainglorious harangues over his script for years. (I think Roddenberry made the right decision in making Kirk decide to let Edith die - it makes his leadership more resolute and the original end was a predictable, romanticised cliche.) Is the original Ellison script available to read or download anywhere? I'm curious to see just how deprived we have been.

Re: Sci-Fi Channel Special Edition Extras...

Yeah, Harlan actually published a whole book on it:

http://www.amazon.com/City-Edge-Fore...4487209&sr=8-1

It includes the teleplay, plus a whole lot of behind the scenes stuff... through Harlan's eyes. Be warned- he doesn't mince words and say many unflattering things about some of the folks behind Trek.

Re: Sci-Fi Channel Special Edition Extras...

I also seemed to have missed this thread until now. As soon as I replace my stolen computer, I plan to watch them all. I have not seen those since the original airing.

I remember when I first had cable installed. Up came the message that Sci-Fi Channel would be coming soon. I think I left the television on that channel every night until it premiered, afraid to miss the first shows to air. Unfortunately the revamped SyFy Channel has strayed far from its science fiction roots.

Re: Sci-Fi Channel Special Edition Extras...

It does make one wonder how things would've gone if they hadn't written Yeoman Rand out. In the end, it probably was for the best.

That being said, it's certainly safe to say that there are a thousand better ways it could've been done than how it happened.
