Re: Nacelle rear spheres: conjectures.

I suggest some folks track down the home video "Inside Star Trek", where, amongst other clarifications, Alexander Courage himself says that he went down into the recording studio and did the whoosh sound.

And that story is also told in TMoST as well, IIRC.

The "reverse cymbal" is in the pilot version only. And it isn't really a reverse cymbal, it was a cymbal swell that was cut off.

Re: Nacelle rear spheres: conjectures.

^ I knew I'd read it before seeing the video, but I wasn't sure if it was TMoST or another source.

Mine too: waterstained first ed., first printing: cover has small E model in the blue sky of Yesterday is Tomorrow, and K/S with pink back ground: Empath maybe? Ep guide in back only goes thru S2.

What a great book when I was a kid. Also still have Gerrold's Worlds of ST, which was above me at the time, but still very insightful about drama and writing, now that I get it.

The first edition of TMOST was published in mid-1968, between the second and third seasons. "The Empath" was a third-season episode. The 3-foot Enterprise model and the Kirk-Spock photo are early publicity stills.

My copy is so worn out, the binding has split in two.

Duh - oh yeah, no wonder I couldn't place it. Isn't the Enterprise pic the one GR would sign as the Enterprise? Like, "Best wishes, USS Enterprise." Read that somewhere. Wish my college roomate hadn't spilled ASsomething on my book, but oh well. Better n nothin, eh? Go Star Trek!!

Re: Nacelle rear spheres: conjectures.

I've got that first edition. In pretty good shape, too.

Just the same, I've got a couple of later editions that I don't have to be as gentle with.
