That Braniff beige probably would have been big in Planet of the Titans.

On Buck Rogers in the 25th Century, Lenard played an alien who could detach his head, set it on a table top, and keep talking as if nothing had happened. Real classy stuff.

According to IMDB, the very next job he had was three years later in Star Trek III-- a good part in a major motion picture. How fortunes change; he must have been delighted to get that job.
I know that he got a lot of commercial voice over work. For the guys at the very top of the heap its very good money and relatively easy work.

I don't think so, not with Kaufman directing. He doesn't seem to have the same costume person from film to film, but one of them, the guy who did WANDERERS for him, went from MARATHON MAN to EXORCIST 2 to CRUISIN' which all look totally different.

To me it just doesn't get better than "Balance of Terror." I missed the poll but would rank it as a 10. It's amazing that they could put an episode like this out so early in the series.

Re: Episode of the Week : Balance of Terror

I'm watching "Balance of Terror" now, and a thought just occurred to me. What if the Romulan Commander had made it home, as well as the Enterprise? Would he argue for war, or would he urge they first strengthen their defenses and the effectiveness of their plasma weapon and cloaking device?

It's doubtful we would have seen more of them either way, due to the makeup costs. Though it could present an opportunity for a story that would work as a bridge between this episode and "The Enterprise Incident".
