I hope the full feature is completed, and wish every OS episode could get a similar treatment.

Something like this for all of TOS would make an unbelievably wonderful series collection.

Norman Spinrad brought this to Polaris with him last year, when he was our Author Guest of Honour. It was cool to watch it with him in the room, adding occasional further commentary.

Re: The Doomsday Machine Revealed

What an extremely well done presentation! Thanks for providing the link. I was particularly impressed with the comparison between Decker and Captain Ahab - which had not previously occurred to me. Though, as noted, the Decker character did possess a greater depth of compassion for his crew.

This is indeed cool. Norman was actually one of my early writing instructors--and taught me how to write novel proposals!

Re: The Doomsday Machine Revealed

The Moby Dick analogy with "The Doomsday Machine" has been around and discussed for a very long time.

This is fun, although it has the usual share of fannish exaggeration.

I do what I can.

This actually is a quite good little feature. I especially appreciate the analysis of Sol Kaplan's use of musical motifs and Marc Daniel's use of depth.

Robert Ryan would have made a really intense Decker.
