    I checked the comparable old-DVD screencap, and it's in the original as well. Sometimes TOS-R sweetens the picture, but this was on set.

    Yes, I’ve been watching TOS for decades, but never noticed that extra cylinder.

    I always remembered the tubes as black or greyish too but that might be because I grew up with the show in the old stylish b/w! :eek:

    Awesome catch! That must be for sky-touching. ;)

    All credit goes to Matt Jefferies for designing those awesome TOS planet sets.

    Just rewatched "The Man Trap" and was surprised at the variety of Starfleet uniforms on the Enterprise. As well as the traditional yellow/red/blue, there were the uniforms of "The Cage" used on background people in corridor scenes, and a green jumpsuit.

    A similar thing happened in the movie era. When Harve Bennett wanted a whole new officer's uniform for The Wrath of Khan, they saved money by re-using a lot of The Motion Picture costumes for the background "trainee crew" characters. They dyed the TMP jumpsuits red to be compatible with the new color scheme.

    From https://memory-alpha.fandom.com/wiki/The_Man_Trap_(episode):

    In one of the red alert scenes on an Enterprise corridor, the crewmen are wearing turtleneck uniforms. It is a recycled (originally unused) shot from "Where No Man Has Gone Before". (It can be seen at the beginning of Act One, in the original, pre-broadcast version of the second pilot.)​

    That's an old catch like Kirk's change of uniform in charlie X! The duplicate Kirk fawning over the transporter controls was more evident that his emblem was missing than the earlier scenes with Kirk on the planet and with Scotty in the chamber!

    “The Corbomite Maneuver” Act II, we see WNM surplus uniforms and equipment, but this isn’t surplus footage:

    Also, the indicator lights near the main viewer have yet to be bordered in red.

    Down on the ghost planet the sparkles are gold.

    Also weird - McCoy doesn't have a phaser. He should.

    Why?

    Of course, he may have a Type 1 tucked in his pants, and Kirk may have two of those. This would be a tad inconvenient when the surviving guns begin exploding, though... But McCoy isn't Starfleet's first line of defense, especially against completely lifeless planets such as the one here. Sure, he sometimes packs heat. But he seldom uses a gun - and when he does, he fumbles ("Return of the Archons" or ST2:TWoK). Perhaps his friends have learned to discourage him from carrying?

    So, don't trust Bones with a phaser? Give him a whistle instead in case there's an emergency? :lol:

    IIRC there are a couple of other instances where Bones beams down without a phaser. All Our Yesterdays, perhaps.
