Re: star trek and power records

I kept getting assorted Power Records for holiday gifts. Usually they were LPs. There were also lots of 45 RPM versions with Spider-Man battling Draco the Dragon and Harry the Hat, the Hulk confronting the Abomination and the Rhino, the Thing squabbling with the Human Torch in The Fantastic Four, plus multiple adaptations of the PLANET OF THE APES series.

The STAR TREK records I got were mostly good, including PASSAGE TO MOAUV, with Sulu, Uhura, Spock, Bones and Kirk mowling and growling at each other.......THE CRIER IN EMPTINESS with a noise-making alien beaten only by an intergalactic piano, pre-CLOSE ENCOUNTERS.......IN VINO VERITAS where Klingons, Romulans and Kirk are fed truth serum during a peace conference......and most notably TO STARVE A FLEAVER where all but Spock are laughing uncontrollably due to the microscopic meegees. Kirk has to order the crew to think sad thoughts in order to free themselves from the infection.

Now the SPACE 1999 record I got was.......ocasionally laughable.....not as funny as the show itself, but almost. Here's why. A villain breaks away from two security guards, who sound like Edward G. Robinson and Archie Andrews respectively. Both are assaulted, and one recovers and shouts ''Commander!''

With a British accent.

The scripts done by Alan Dean Foster, when he was also adapting Filmation's TAS episodes for Ballantine, included M'ress in "Passage to Moauv" and, apparently, Arex in "The Crier in Emptiness". There was some legal doubt as to whether Power Records' comic art could use Filmation's characters, so Caitian Lt M'Ress was drawn and coloured to resemble a character more like Yvonne Craig's green Orion from TOS, but still called a Caitian, - and the Edoan, Lt Arex, was replaced and redrawn as the new "Mr Connors", a blond caucasian human. At the same time, they recoloured Sulu and Uhura.

Notice how Connors has an awkward stance at times, indicating that an extra arm and leg have been erased. His name also overlaps the speech balloon border at times. (A "paste-up" over the word "Arex"?) He still owns an Edoan elisiar, though. How does he play it with only four limbs?

When the book/comic was reprinted as a tie-in to "Star Trek: The Motion Picture", Willard Decker was on the new cover and, at first, I thought it was meant to be him!
