  3. Christopher replied to the thread TOS novel length.

    I think it had something to do with readers complaining that scenes from the novelizations weren't in the films -- they tended to assume...

    Hold on, there's an actual place called Benecia? Of course, the problem is compounded by the fact that TOS's writers had a strange...

    The point is, it is incorrect to say the ship was "ordered into battle." The fact that they were not expecting battle is an important...

    I don't see how you could assume otherwise. Carol contacts him and accuses him of taking Genesis from her. She doesn't say there's an...

    You're considering distance but ignoring direction. The two stars are 144 degrees apart in the sky, meaning they're in nearly opposite...
