Re: Problem I had with "By Any Other Name"

IIRC, the notion of the Kelvan-transmuted suspended-animation-distilled-tetrahedrons was attributed to Roddenberry in David Gerrold's "The World of Star Trek".

Doesn't Fontana also attribute them to Roddenberry on one of the DVD features?

I think there have been examples of characters being beamed away in a sitting position and being rematerialized upright, so it's not a huge stretch.
Captain Christopher in "Tomorrow is Yesterday".
Chekov in Wraith of Khan, materialized with one leg raised on a rock (Captain Morgan style). In Mudd's Woman, the landing party materialized at different levels, owing to the uneven ground.

Re: Problem I had with "By Any Other Name"

I apologize for being late to this thread and I do not know if this issue has already been brought up (if that's the case, please advise, thanx):

Were the Kelvans brought to a planet of their liking and isolated / quarantined like Talos IV or was their superior technology (e.g. warp drive) added to the Federation's?

I do not know how far Federation ethics and principles extend, but this must have been an issue I can imagine the Federation members having had several months of discussions on Babel...

Re: Problem I had with "By Any Other Name"

FWIW, the Starfleet Corps of Engineers novella Foundations features Starfleet experimenting with Kelvan technology on one USS Chandley, with the Kelvans' cooperation. There are several unnamed Kelvan background characters there, suggesting at least one further ship arrived from the doomed neighboring galaxy and again failed to conquer the Milky Way...
