Stewart talks about it in the S7 extras, that one documentary about him reminiscing about the cast.

I seem to recall him saying he'd said something not realizing the racist context, & that it was not received well, & then later explained to him, at which time he was apologetic of his ignorance

Re: does anybody know the answer to this?

you have to remember these guys were working up to 16hrs a day 6 days a week for 7 years.... sure they would have got on each others nerves, but who wouldn't when you're spending that long with people. As long as they can look back and laugh now, it really doesn't matter!

he probably said something fairly innocuous like "hey that klingon makeup makes you looks like a gorilla" and the politically correct americans got bent out of shape about it.

Re: does anybody know the answer to this?

I think in season 1, they were still finding their feet and didn't really get on well.

It's probably not until the later seasons that they became an almost second family. They're probably unique amongst all of the crews that they are the closest post-production (bar perhaps the original series, as Shatner and Nimoy are friends and the late James Doohan and DeForest Kelley were close with other cast members).
