    Many don't know that Captain Pike also went to Vulcan and had to fight in a Pon Farr...

    (okay, it's really Jeffrey Hunter fighting Ed Ames on Daniel Boone, but darned if Ames doesn't look awfully Vulcan...)

    Agreed - Ames would have made a good Vulcan. A fourth season, assuming it could have had watchable scripts, would have been interesting if for nothing else the other guest stars that would have popped up.

    I wish they'd cast more Jews as Vulcans. Although, I do have to say Tim Russ did a good job.

    Why? Do Jews look Vulcan?

    I'm guessing that "Mr. Laser Beam" beat me to that famous Tonight Show clip. Welcome to "Frontier Bris."
