Mannix, season 5, "The Man Outside". Another twofer! Mannix tries to figure out what over-ambitious blackmailer Kathy Brown is doing while Evil Mystery Man Cloud William tries to kill him.

Why, he's in North Fork, of course.

Meanwhile on AMC, it looks like Kathie Browne is making Gil Favor, trail boss, want to do a scene where he has to pull his boots back on....

Re: Trek guest actors in maybe surprising roles

They look different because they are facing in different directions in the two scenes.

Re: Trek guest actors in maybe surprising roles

No, they're very different. The "Empath" stairway has smaller, more rounded arches with a lot more height between the top of the arch and the tread of the stair above it. Also, it doesn't have a railing. And the rings around the central post are thicker. And the height of the steps appears to be greater, though it's hard to be sure. They don't resemble each other at all, beyond being the same general type of staircase.

Also, I'm not sure, but I think the "Empath" spiral staircase may be made of wood instead of metal. Not sure this TrekCore link will work, but here's a much closer look:

It's a helix, it can't face a different direction. A "clockwise up" stair would have tread segments the exact opposite of one that went the other way. And the arch under the treads and the outboard face of the segments are completely different.

That would really surprise me. It would be a lot of effort and expense to fabricate something in wood that had been very economically mass produced in iron since Victorian times.

What effort and expense? Most Hollywood set pieces are made of wood, even when they look like metal or stone or whatever. Wood is comparatively cheap and easy to work with. And since this was meant to be a futuristic set piece rather than a Victorian one, it wouldn't surprise me if they built it specially.

The expense of a craftsman cutting, fitting, joining and so on for many pieces of wood, when you can go out and buy the same thing in mass produced, pre-fab metal.

Re: Trek guest actors in maybe surprising roles

Maybe. But like I said, set builders cut, fit, and join large amounts of wood on a regular basis. They build entire rooms in a couple of days and then tear them down a few days later so they can build new ones in their place. So doing a lot of work with wood is not exactly something they'd have a problem doing. And it's not like a tight spiral staircase requires a great deal of material. If the available prefab staircases didn't seem right for a 23rd-century Starfleet installation, it wouldn't have been that hard to slap one together. I could be wrong, sure, but I don't think it can be ruled out as a possibility.

Re: Trek guest actors in maybe surprising roles

The stairways go in different directions - one is clockwise, the other counter-colckwise. Unless the film is flopped. One is beefier than the other with different shaped fillets. They're clearly different. But it was a cute thought.

Re: Trek guest actors in maybe surprising roles

I guess you're right, I could have sworn they were the same. Well, I can't find a listing for the spiral staircase on IMDB, so I can't confirm it one way or the other.
