    This is a universe in which a person's brain was surgically removed from their body, the body controlled by remote control while the brain operated a whole society's computer system, and then put back in without a single scar or side effect.

    Not to put too fine a point on it, I’d add to all that “and without a hair out of place.”

    Hell when McCoy beamed down with remote controllable Spock, there wasn't even a hair out of place on his head.:wtf:

    Then 5 seconds after the operation to replace his brain, Spock sits up and again not a hair out of place on his head.:rommie:

    Embarrassment leads to duplication leads to more embarrassment in a self-perpetuating cycle so that one easily-triggered doopler fills up a starship in minutes?

    And yes, I also have a problem with the tribbles in The Trouble with Edward.

    And the ones in Trouble with Tribbles that overran a starship and a space station in hours?

    What about "More Tribbles, More Troubles" with them being chest high on Klingons?

    Well if you recall that was because they tried to inject them with the serum that would prevent them from multiplying; but as we found out later it just coalesced a colony of Tribbles into one big mass.

    And this was displayed when a Klingon fired his disruptor at a giant Tribble and it just turned into a bunch of regular size Tribbles. :)

    Star Trek has largely been silly for a really long time.

    You mean electric light? I have never seen gas lights unless it's a paraffin light.

    The only issue I have with the Dooplers is their copies having clothes.

    Well, to be fair....universal translator. Which just supports your argument in a different way.

    The bowl cut seems rather easy to manage. Perhaps why it is the logical choice of hairstyle.

    Haven't watched 6,7,8 or 9 of SNW Season 1 yet, but I watched this one today and was very impressed all around. A true classic.

    Was it a wig? As Nimoys hair seemed more like Mark Hamils and just a side wave parting.

    What you don't remember is that as well as a doctor and surgeon, McCoy also is an accomplished and accredited hair stylist .

    Nimoy didn't wear a wig as Spock during TOS.

    Yep! There are even paparazzi type photos from that period of Nimoy out with his family or at a club with someone here and there, and he's got the hairstyle. I think I saw those in issues of Enterprise Incidents or something!
