^Don't diss the talking asparagus. If it weren't for that, there wouldn't be the one hilarious scene in the otherwise dire novel The Fearful Summons, where a telepathic Phylosian hits on Kirk in a bar.

Because Koenig got thrown a bone and got to "write" an episode.

Where are you, Giant Spock? On his way to Vulcan to be reunited with the Creator. Have they used that plot yet?
The giant clones and talking asparagus were not Koenig's idea, btw.
Really? Foisted on him by whom?

Someone in authority who though giant clones and talking asparagus would play better in a cartoon.

Re: Wherefore art thou, Giant Spock Clone?

I thought Koenig was cool with the giants (or even invented them) and only hated the plant people? Or perhaps the other way around. Where can we find his comments on the issue?

Re: Wherefore art thou, Giant Spock Clone?

http://en.memory-alpha.org/wiki/The_...nd_Information has a lot of interesting background information. Apparently, the idea of plants come from Gene. Koenig claims he thought of cloning a force of peace-keepers. It doesn't say who came up with the idea of giants, as far as I can find. All it says about giants is that Gene and D.C. thought it would work well in animation, which is of course true. Maybe it's discussed further in one of the cited sources.
