Another Bill Theiss costume that saved the TOS budget by using verrrry little fabric.
And lemonade liquor!
Made from a bunch of these, also allowing a generous snack break for cast and crew:

No wonder the redshirts were doomed -- they couldn't follow simple orders.
Naah, they're just security or engineering divisions. The myth of "red shirt" wouldn't exist if TOS didn't get made during the mainstream rollout of NTSC* color television goodness.
* NTSC = "never the same color", regarding the ineffectiveness of NTSC format videotape...
Yes, those Trek babes sure can be distracting.
The original series ladies definitely get my vote over the much later ones my Lord!
Captain Kirk likes them too, JB.
NTSC is the signal type, not videotape. As in NTSC, PAL, SEACAM, etc.
As I interpret this, Marple is following the order correctly: he is cutting around the rock that is to (on) his right.
But, but, but.....when Kirk is giving the order to him, Marple's left side is facing the rock. Now, if Kirk would have said "Cut around the rock on my right.", then maybe the redshirt would have been totally confused. Poor redshirts.
Kirk meant "screen right".
Around the papier mache boulder.
Mea culpa; I was only going from the screen shot in your earlier post.
No wonder I have no stripes on my sleeves!
The Booth for you. Full duration.
In "Journey to Babel" during the reception scene, there is a crystal centerpiece on the table, next to the punch bowl and color cubes. The platter of jems is flickering with light, like a flame. A subtle detail, but there is a steady flame like glow on the rock chow. (Was it edible?) Shows what effort went into the show.
I've seen that episode a hundred times and did not notice that detail until the second or third blu-ray viewing. Fascinating.
You must mean that gold colored bowl....
There must have been a wire under the table to electrify that bowl of crystals. Now I've got to watch for that!
Great eyes! I just watched that scene and those crystals do blink. Another nice touch by special effects guru Jim Rugg.
I never noticed the gold bowl before, either. Those chunks of quartz could double as dilithium crystal props. The burnt one from "Mudd's Women" might even be in the bowl.
