Now if I could only stay awake during "The Immunity Syndrome"!

YES! IS is a sleeper as well. Glad I am not alone on that one as well...
TOTAL sleeper. Maybe worst episode of TOS for that fact. No coolness like space hippies or Spock's hair being good after a brain operation. Just DULL. Woof.
Different strokes I guess. 40 years ago when I started watching TOS in reruns I started ranking them, and DOOMSDAY and IMMUNITY were always in my top 3 (other was usually BALANCE or OBSESSION.) I don't think IMMUNITY has EVER been out of my top 10. Wish they did more stuff that didn't bother with guest cast.

EDIT ADDON: odd, but the reason I went into this thread was I saw newest member name was dgerrold and I was wondering if it was David Gerrold. Info on page indicated he had posted here, but there's nothing here from him, and now when I go back to the username it has zero posts listed.

Re: Operation – Annihilate: Operation – Stay Awake

The only thing that irked me about "Operation -- Annihilate!" was the cheap device of Spock being blinded. Of course, we knew he would regain his sight before the closing credits rolled.

It's interesting to see the TRW employees watching the filming from the walkway overhead. I wonder if it was hard to keep them quiet during takes?
That shouldn't have been a problem. We Southern Californians are used to seeing film crews everywhere and we know how to conduct ourselves when a location shoot is in progress. Besides, all the dialogue in the outdoor scenes had to be looped in postproduction anyway.

A lot of fans thought the location was a college campus. Here's a link to a screencap of a well-composed shot, with the walkway in the foreground blocking out the TRW logo on the tall white building.
On second thought, it would have been a pretty hefty coincidence if an overhead walkway just happened to be in the right place for that shot. I'm sure the dark triangle in the upper left corner is just a piece of cardboard or something mounted on a stand in front of the camera.

ADDENDUM: Wait a minute -- this is a ZOMBIE THREAD!
