    JB! It is absolutely the same guy. I'm talking (in the shot of the rec room from Let That Be) about the guy in red sitting to Hadley's left.

    Same dude.


    Right. Also, only regulars had the velcro sewn into their pants, so extras playing security guards wouldn't cut that mustard. This is sort of paralled in TNG when you saw, even as late as S6 and S7, extras in the super-tight skintight uniforms from S1 (and maybe S2) walking around. Picard et al. received the less painful uniforms at the beginning of S3 or whenever, but extras didn't rate. Same thing with the regulars in Star Trek getting the velcro at (I think) the beginning of S2. And the velcro didn't work for the women's uniforms, so they always wore belts if they carried phasers or communicators. (Although interestingly, at one point in The Apple Landon drops her phaser, then picks it up and places it on her skirt area, not on the belt, and it sticks!!)

    They had a narrow black belt in the 1st season that we see in "Tomorrow is Yesterday", where Kirk and Sulu hand them over to the Air Sargeant, and "Space Seed," on the door guard.
    But a cursory look through Trekcore indicates that the security cummerbund :D may have first showed up in "Mirror, Mirror."

    I never heard the idea that they were supposed to be magnetic.

    From the tech manual:

    Not canon, but it sounds future-y.

    I studied that manual for years as a kid! Forgot that detail. If FJ captions it, it is true

    By Any Other Name...when the bridge crew gets frozen, the crewman next to Uhura must have been moving too fast for Hanar.

    I think your facial recognition organs might be off by one or two hundred degrees somewhere, Phase! :techman:

    In "Spock's Brain," Kirk botches the stardate in his second log entry.

    In Act 1 of the episode, it's Stardate 5431.4. In Act 2, it's 4351.5. And in Act 3, it's back up to 5431.6.

    Hmmm. Maybe the Enterprise was going backward through time in the search for Spock's brain?

    Certainly was going backwards in quality.

    Fred Freiberger approved a remake of Spock’s Brain with an even lower budget...

    I would have thought Marc Daniels would have caught that to be honest?

    1. The director doesn't pay attention to continuity, that's the script supervisor's job
    2. Logs and looping were recorded in post-production and the director usually had nothing to do with it...it was probably all under Bob Justman

    What a man he was. I have the utmost admiration for his service to TOS. For him to decide to leave in the middle of S3, there had to be some serious conflicts/problems on the set. IIRC, Justman said he was taking a chance of being blacklisted in Hollywood.

    It was this futuristic stuff called velcro.

    Thank you Sub-commander T'Pol.

    Blacklisted at Paramount anyway. By rights he should have walked when Gene R. inserted Freiberger. The writing was on the wall that the career path Justman had hoped for with Trek wasn't going to be.

    Would have been interesting to have seen what Justman would have done with the show. However given that he would have had to of worked with the same budget and resources as Freiberger the results might not have been too different.

    You can say (maybe) better scripts, but the stories would probably still have had to of focused on Kirk/Spock/McCoy for financial reasons.

    I’m on the pro-Justman side. A lot of ‘ifs’ involved, but at least he was with the show from the beginning. Maybe he understood what TOS was all about, more than Fred Freiberger.

    No maybe about it, IMO. Justman would've had a better sense of what stories would work for TOS, and I bet he would've had the sense to play "Spock's Brain" as the light comedy episode it was intended as. I think he also would've been more respectful to D.C. Fontana's and David Gerrold's intentions towards their episodes "The Enterprise Incident" and "The Cloudminders," respectively. Who knows? Maybe he could've even gotten Gene Coon to write some more Trek scripts and we could've seen something closer to Fontana's "Joanna" instead of "The Way to Eden."
