Ever since TTI contained the line, "Look at that!"
Then when Cutty says "What in the name of God?" the topic veers into a "Who Mourns For Adonais" reenactment, right?

Re: Whatever happened to Starship Exeter?

There are a couple of other quoted lines buried in there somewhere, although some may have been changed during filming. Harris's explanations of how the Tholian device worked were cobbled together from phrases used in episodes like "Mirror, Mirror" specifically because I didn't want to invent new technobabble for a TOS-era story. Explanations also tend to be TOS-style by using analogies to common phenomena or notions - "ripples in a pond" as compared to "doubling a penny" etc.

Somebody caught "shuttle bay" early in the revision process, which we changed to "hangar deck."

I liked your "doubling a penny" moment a lot. You delivered the explanation efficiently, without getting bogged down, and with some humorous touches [e.g. Cutty and Quince nodding their heads, thinking "Yeah, right! We follow you in every detail."].

I also liked the line "Cold-blooded bastard!", which I interpret as a subtle modernization touch. It makes the episode just a little grittier, without disrupting the overall mood of being in the 60's.

Re: Whatever happened to Starship Exeter?

I've said before, but I never mind repeating myself...I especially like the different interpersonal dynamics of the main characters. There's not the big happy family and Garrovick is not the incredibly charismatic, swashbuckler that Kirk is, but for all the tension and borderline dislike, there is a lot of respect (albeit grudging) and they are still professional enough to do their jobs effectively. In some ways I think it's a more realistic depiction of how a military vessel functions than TOS.

The writting, the actors, the director, the special effects... all came together to make something GREAT....
Maybe if the name was changed to Exeter Mortgage and Investments then you could have been "Bailed Out" and we could have more great ST Exeter episodes to watch.
I know, "If wishes were horese beggers would ride."

Let's not be poking fun at "Who Mourns For Adonais" shall we? That episode is definately one of the original series better installments. Well-written by its author, and well acted by the regular cast(especially when Kirk was zapped by Apollo)and its guest stars(veteran Shakespearean stage actor Michael Forest and the ever lovely Leslie Parrish).

Would it have hurt us, I wonder, just to have gathered a few laurel leaves?

In the case of Apollo, not in the slightest bit. Especially when it comes to lighting the ancient fires and killing a deer.

Uh, no, it hasn't. We're still waiting for it, though.
