Re: My Greivences of Nutrek. What makes me a hater... For the time period the show was made. Yeah, I don't think they could have done it. I think the censors and Execs would have shit the bed. For all the latter day hype, TOS wasn't that progressive; it was still pretty safe in terms of what they did. In-universe: I think it could have worked. There's a bit of a hint in "That Which Survives"--could have the wrong episode title--and Charlie X. Would have worked a lot better than Chapel pining away for S]pock. Edit: It's "Who Mourns For Adonais" and "Charlie X", that I was thinking of; knew I had one wrong. And, even in TOS, Spock's a Player: Must have picked up some moves from Carl.
