    Interestingly, the script for "The Cage" identifies the character as "The Keeper", even if he/she isn't actually referred as such to by name in the script's dialog itself.

    I don't think that was meant to represent the official title in-universe, though, just Pike's nickname for the Magistrate. (I mean, I doubt "Third Survivor" was an official title either.) Spock using the title in "The Menagerie" seems like a script error, though I suppose it's possible that he was influenced by Pike's usage.

    And the Kalar warrior wasn't literally "Neanderthal" as well. But it's still interesting that the script uses the title "Keeper" and not "Magistrate". Perhaps because it's easier to type?

    More likely because it's in keeping with the "Cage"/'Menagerie" theme -- the Magistrate is metaphorically the zookeeper to whom Pike is one of his caged exhibits. But that theme is metatextual, while "Magistrate" is the Talosians' own title for him within the story.

    When you create a fake image and put it on the Net without explanation, it's a joke to you, but it's a lot like forgery for people who don't know. And there have been enough editions of TOS on home video that even the fans can't be sure of anything.

    We watched "The Man Trap" as our summer rerun tonight (historically, there was no Trek tonight, but I run my own station and can do whatever I want). Funnily enough, on the historically run Dragnet rerun tonight (67-01-12), there was a certain Man Trap star...

    You think he's space happy or something? (no -- it's LSD)

    KIRK: Him? He's harmless. Back in the sixties he was part of the Free Speech movement at Berkeley. I think he had a little too much LDS.

    Ken Lynch pops up as a tough marshall trying to save his son (Andrew Pryne) from the vengeful father of a man he shot in self defense, in the Have Gun - Will Travel ep "The Marshall's Boy." Hal Needham is still there in the background, this time as a posse member.
