Re: Alternative Factor - Worst Episode Ever?

Correction: Ellison had ONE drug dealing crewman who addicted another to a drug called "Jewels of Sound". That guy is the one who changed history by--ironically--doing a decent thing (saving Edith).

Ellison wrote the original script, and (very vocally) hated the alterations that were made to the screenplay. His version had drug dealers on the Enterprise....
Thanks, for the info. I don't think I would have liked that version.
If you are so inclined and since it is your favorite episode; you should pick-up the book. It's pretty interesting and has several versions of the story included. Here is the Amazon link:

Thanks to you as well. I will check it out.
