I've always felt that "Forbidden Planet" makes a pretty cool prequel to the TOS era. Nothing in it really contradicts anything from TOS, and the Earth ship (and her crew, technology, color scheme, and uniforms) aren't that different from what we saw in "The Cage," so it's easy to see a logical progression from the "Forbidden Planet" type of stuff to "The Cage" (which of course segways into TOS). On top of it all, Gene Roddenberry said that the movie inspired him to make TOS, so even as far as the real-world goes, it's certainly a type of prequel. Anyone who's familiar with the film - what do you think? Agree or disagree? Do you think it's a neat idea or a stupid one? Post below!
