    Obsession...Kirk tells Garrovick to go to the left. In the background is that funny shaped rock with some foliage on it.

    Next scene...Garrovick has found that same rock with the same foliage on it.

    ...Plus some alien footprints! (Or is he perhaps running in circles?)

    You see one rock, you've seen them all. It looks like they rotated the camera only about 10 degrees and ripped out the foreground bush...maybe if they moved the camera more and changed more of the greenery, they would have fooled you.

    Can't say I've ever noticed but I usually keep my eyes waiting for the Cloud to appear anyway!

    Yep, most viewers are focused on the actors, and we favor the foreground over the background (where nothing is expected to happen on a TV show). I never noticed the rock before, either.

    Director Ralph Senensky was struck by how small the Stage 10 planet set was on "Metamorphosis." He even used a wide-angle lens to create that illusion that Cochrane was far away when first seen.

    And he had to shoot through a rocky overhang to conceal the top of the cyclorama, the studio ceiling, etc.

    Nope! Sorry, Phase! I remember the guy who attacked Bones but the other scene I've only ever seen the once and I don't think it's the same dude! :techman:

    What is the point of the black sash around Garrovick's waist? If it's to signify his rank as head of security then I don't recall Giotto or Stan Dickerson having one?

    Garrovick isn't the only one wearing the sash in "Obsession":

    Though later on he's not:

    Maybe it denotes "I'm a member of a Security Detail and on duty " because we see the sash again in the 2nd season:
    The guy(s) that enter to breakup the bar fight appear to be wearing it.

    Isn't that just the belt they attach their phasers and communicators to?

    Yes, it's a phaser belt worn when on duty. I don't know why they wore them outside their jerseys when senior officers wore them slightly under their jerseys. Are they wider because they're supposed to be carrying additional phaser power packs?

    Dunno, but the look brings to mind US Navy sailors on shore patrol, with the white/green web belts for the holster and billy.

    The early phaser 2 belt was brown and flared on the "hoister" side, later replaced with the black phaser/utility belt. I suppose that security wore them outside their shirts with their shirts tucked in so that nothing would interfere with their quick draw. Women wore them too, outside their skirts for obvious reasons...

    They probably came up with the equipment belts for security because most Velcro(TM) came in black, and it was easier than trying to color match the uniforms. Remember, the conceit is that the equipment is supposed to magnetically adhere to their uniforms.

    That shot of Cochrane greeting the shuttle is the most cinematic of TOS since the Rigel VII fortress.

    It works in 16:9, too.
