^ I always was amused that Spock seemed indifferent about the fact that Kirk attempted mutiny and more surprised that he wasn't already captain.

Re: Things about Star Trek you just found out

I think after all the insubordinate acts that his Kirk's pulled over the years, a mutiny wouldn't phase Spock

Spock's hijacked the ship himself (the Menagerie) and mutinied at least one (This Side of Paradise).

1). The Romulan Senator Pardek from Unification is played by a guy who appeared in the Oriignal Series a few times, including as the Starfleet Admiral/Commodore in The Menagerie.


2). The Original Script for Star Trek III (in which the Romulans were the villain) would have featured a way more political plot, with Vulcan threatening to secede from the Federation over the development of project Genesis.

While it's not something I *just* found out...I didn't know the Enterprise's viewscreen was 3-D (depth wise, not as in 'project out of the screen) until I saw "The Defector"

One of the Cardassians in Profit and Loss was played by the same actress as Susan from Seinfeld.

Re: Things about Star Trek you just found out

It's a VFX thing but the Excelsior class you can see get disabled by a giant Dominion disruptor beam at the very start of one of the acts of What You Leave Behind (just before the Defiant appears chasing a random Jem Hadar bug ) is a re-use of a background element from "Tears of the Prophets" where the same thing happens.

Last thing I needed to know about that battle was that it had even MORE re-used footage than I realised!

That some fans have been incredibly adept at CGI with original Star Trek, to make something like THIS. And that was 2 years ago!
That's... amazing. Now THAT is what I call "TOS: Remastered".

I confess that for years I thought "The Galileo Seven" referred to the name and number of the shuttle, not the number of passengers!
Thanks, Greg. Now I know !

Scotty's integration would have been so incredibly easy. Also Old Spock's passiveness, and a lot of contrivances from the middle part of the film...
Well they do kinda explain the coincidences as the timeline trying to repair itself somewhat, which makes sense from a narrative point of view if not a logical point of view. Unfortunately the line was cut from the movie, and we're left with "how did you find me ?" and "fascinating" from Spock.

Yeah, Malachi Throne. What an awesome name.

In reality, that Boner from Growing Pains was Walter Koenig's son in real life. It makes that joke even funnier in an episode when Mike Seaver was complaining about writing an english paper to Boner and he says, "Until today I thought Chekov was that Russian guy in Star Trek".
Similarly, ST:TMP's Rhaandarite bridge ensign, Billy Van Zandt, played a cadet in "TAPS". All the cadets were sitting around a TV set watching "Spock's Brain" and Billy's character, Bug, knows what's going to happen... because he's seen all the episodes before. It was a coincidence that the scene was in the script but his Trek connection added a layer of meaning to the scene as it was shot.

A few years later, Billy was playing a wacky character in TV's "Anything But Love" who, in one episode, turns up to work in a magazine production office brandishing a phaser, which he's just bought from a Star Trek convention downstairs.

A few more years later, Billy Van Zandt's wife, Adrienne Barbeau became the second Senator Cretak in DS9!

Re: Things about Star Trek you just found out

This is somewhat embarrassing for someone who's been a fan going back to the 70s (I even have 2 Okuda books) to admit, but:

I never realized until a few months back that two actresses who played Catwoman (Newmar & Meriweather, of course) appeared on TOS. I knew Yvonne Craig's connection to TOS & Batman, never realized the other two guest starred. And I was a big fan of the Batman show too.

Do you remember Grace Lee Whitney as King Tut's moll? Hilarious!

Not to mention Colonel Gumm (Roger C Carmel/Harry Mudd).

Frank Gorshin's Riddler (Commissioner Bele).

And Malachi Throne as... False... Face!
