    Thanks for posting that! She's my favorite woman from TOS and I'm happy to see she still looks so good. :bolian:

    MEDIUM COOL, starring Robert Forster and featuring Mariana Hill, was just released on DVD and BluRay to the Criterion collection on Tuesday. Jesse Jackson also appears briefly as himself. Haskell Wexler directs. Forster and Hill are quite exposed during one three-minute scene in the first hour.

    If she's the one you're stuck down there with, I wouldn't care if Keener or Keenster or whoever the hell that little guy is was still hanging around.

    Then again, if it is the REAL delta-vega, Gary'd probably snag her, and I'd wind up under a big rock with the wrong middle initial for me on it.

    Does anyone else think the second picture (in the original post) looks like Rayna?

    It must be my eyes.

    If she were a fembot, I'd buy one.

    Was Helen Noel's character officially transferred off the ship after the events in DAGGER, or just forgotten? For the James Blish adaptation of the episode, I believe she was transferred off.

    By coincidence, I mentioned that she had transferred over to the Reliant in my latest Trek book. (The Weight of Worlds, p. 26, if anyone's interested.)

    Didn't know about the Blish thing. (It's been decades since I read those books.)

    While I essentially agree with you, she could go the Telly Savalas route and I'd still consider her stunning.

    I was mildly annoyed with the throwaway line in the NuTrek comic adaptation of Where No Man Has Gone Before. Kirk asks if Dr Dehner is on the ship as her expertise might be useful, and McCoy says she turned down the job because, well, he shagged her and it ended badly.

    So not only did they write out one of the few brassy, confident, and efficient female characters (and the only woman in the whole story), they did so by making her upset about a man, AND they missed an opportunity to feature Helen Noel.

    In fact, now that I think about it, both Dehner and Noel are probably too young to be qualified psychiatrists in 2258...

    I'm still keeping fingers crossed that they might wise up and use the character, although I'm never quite sure if there are rights issues and royalties that might act as a bar.

    We can use any TOS character in prose, although sometimes there are issues about using an actor's image . . . .

    I suppose that does make it trickier if they want the art to resemble the actors but Rand, for example, hasn't been styled on Grace Lee Whitney so they could still do it I suppose.

    That's not uncommon in comic book adaptations. I remember that Marvel's PLANET OF THE APES comics back in the 1970s had to avoid making Taylor look like Charlton Heston because they didn't have the rights to use Heston's image. Ditto, I believe, for Michael York and the LOGAN'S RUN comic book.
