Nice that list writing gig is working out for you. I just couldn't bring myself to view the worst elisodes list right now. Didn't want to bum out, but will later.
Imagine having to write it.

I've considered offering up the audio of the Q&A. The video is probably too mediocre for me to let out into the world, though.

Not as long as you might think, but I have been freelancing as a transcriber for the better part of a year now.

Fascinating, thanks for sharing it. Robert Butler strikes me as someone who just doesn't posess the gift to entertain on-screen but off-screen as well and is (still) sharp as a razor blade.

Graphic and concise.

Re: Fact-Checking Inside Star Trek: The Real Story

Slowly working on something new here, and seeing if someone here can lend me a hand.

I'm wondering if anybody has an original copy of Mr. Spock's Music From Outer Space from 1967 (I'm interested in both the full album and the single version). Specifically, I'm wondering who the album lists as the composer for each track (specifically the Trek theme, but I'm interested in the others as well). There are some low-resolution pictures online, but they're not good enough to read the fine print, and it's unclear if there was an insert or what was printed on the actual record.

High-res pics would be handy, but not essential. Thanks in advance.

EDIT: This page has a good picture of the disc's first side, although the back cover is still too difficult to read, and I'm curious about Side 2. http://www.maidenwine.com/lps.html

^You'd need to add the B side label for the composer credits, since they aren't on the jacket.

Re: Fact-Checking Inside Star Trek: The Real Story

Not sure which TOS budget thread this should be in, but here goes. I know the percentage of the budget for TOS in terms of VFX to overall cost was much higher than TNG (early TNG eps were budgeted for something like 75-80 grand for VFX out of 1.2 mil!), but based on something I saw in an old CFQ interview with John Dwyer, it sounds like it was MUCH higher on average than even I thought. Was wondering if HARVEY or anybody else has good numbers that support or don't support Dwyer's claims.

In the 30th anniversary issue of that mag, Dwyer says 40 grand of each show went to opticals. (he also says 30%, which is plainly crazy, hence my query as to the veracity.) Now this number DOES support the notion that THOLIAN WEB had a ninety grand optical bill as Minor reports in ENTERPRISE INCIDENTS, whereas a lot of folks have since thought Minor meant THOLIAN cost NINETEEN grand more than pattern.

Dwyer does report the decorating budget on TOS as $500 per show, which fits with what I've seen elsewhere.

Anyway, just curious to see how legit these numbers are, relative to what has surfaced in the intervening years.
