    Sean Kenney played the disfigured Captain Pike in the TOS episode "The Menagerie".

    They didn't give him much to play with.

    Sadly, there are lots of real life examples.

    LOL! :rofl:

    I'm re-watching The Man Trap for the first time in who-knows-how-long. Damn. It's so good! A few things I've noticed:
    • I know this wasn't the first post-Cage ep filmed, but the world already feels lived in. Kirk teases McCoy when they first beam down and apologizes after he snaps at him - very believably friends. Uhura is teasing and flirting with Spock, even putting her hand on his arm (he seems to find his collar a bit tight there!). Even when she gets mad at him, there's a familiarity. Janice and Sulu seem to be friends/friendly. She even handles the catcalling jerks like she's used to it.
    • The first redshirt to die is wearing blue!
    • It's not sickbay yet, it's the dispensary.
    • The ruins on the planet look vaguely Aztec.
    • I think Uhura has more to do & say here than in the rest of the eps combined!
    • The actor playing Green did a great job lusting after that salt shaker.
    • I had completely forgotten about the plant Janice likes!
    Charlie X next!

    Yep.

    I believe that "The Man Trap" and "Where No Man Has Gone Before" are the only two episodes that use the term "dispensary," and in "Where No Man Has Gone Before" Dr. Piper seems to be referring to the medical center of the Delta Vega mining outpost.

    Which is reused footage from The Corbomite Maneuver.

    Spock calls it Dispensary in "The Naked Time" when he's trying to get them on the intercom.

    I'm unfamiliar with that line. When does it happen, exactly?

    I don't recall the context. But elsewhere in the episode, sickbay is sickbay, and additionally there's the biopsy lab. "DIspensary" might be an additional facility - perhaps Spock wanted an aspirin? Or some sedatives, just in case.

    It doesn't. There are calls to sickbay and the bio lab.

    In the Rec Room scene in Charlie X, Uhura and Rand talk without speaking in the eye language of female humans. :lol:

    Actually, the Talosians used to look like perfectly normal humans just like so many other aliens in TOS. Their appearance in Cage/Menagerie is the result of long-term membership in a TrekBBX.

    Skepticism is wise.
