Re: Episode of the Week: The Neutral Zone

^ I wonder if that had more to do with the difficulty of representing 23rd-century Earth on their budget. There were several episodes set on 20th-century Earth: Tomorrow Is Yesterday, Assignment: Earth, and The City on the Edge of Forever.

There were also several "Earth on another planet" episodes like Miri, The Omega Glory, Patterns of Force, and A Piece of the Action.

Re: Episode of the Week: The Neutral Zone

Assignment: Earth was also a backdoor pilot. Roddenberry later did Genesis II, Planet Earth, and The Questor Tapes. Then there's Earth: Final Conflict. So, I don't see that Roddenberry had an aversion to Earth stories.
