Must be played every Fourth of July.

I love Omega Glory
controversial opinion: Ronald Tracy is a top-3 TOS villain
Omega Glory is a fairly good story that refused to end when it should have done, with the final fisticuffs in the street between Kirk and Tracey.
That additional extended scene in the meeting hall is what killed it, IMO
What makes you think it's controversial?
What's funny is that it echoes one of Asimov's Novel "Stars Like Dust" that ... shall we say...ends in the same spirit.
When asked about it later Asimov confessed that he hated that novel and that he agreed to end it this way against his better judgment.
Yup. And the differences required no comment from the characters than the Enterprise had a refit. The rest is minutia.
At some point between 2258 and 2265 the Enterprise looks like it did in TOS. This "visual retcon" theory has never been backed up by confirmation from producers nor has the TOS look being decanonized been anything more than fan speculation.
No, but some people do see it every Fourth of July.
AS THEY SHOULD.
Considering that TOS had a budget of two nickels, dental floss, and a cheese sandwich, they did rather well.
Ok I stand corrected
Ephraim and Dot?
I love the feel of that Short Trek but the less I think about the completely incoherent in-episode continuity the better. They didn't even get the registry number on the refitted Enterprise right. They clearly weren't being serious or paying attention.
I like the early ones where they were wearing sweaters.
Those sweaters looked a great deal classier than the thin shirts that followed. I wish they had stuck with the sweaters. Is that controversial?
I have no idea. I don't know what's the general consensus on that one.
I bet the sweaters were hot under the lights. Besides, they weren't colorful enough. On my 1960's color TV of the time, the command gold looked the same as the salmon operations color. I never knew they were different colors until more modern times.
Yeah, that's it. They needed more trenchant colors.
I always liked the look but the colors, insignia and rank were too muted to really work.
