    Guess it depended on the day's mood of TPTB.

    That, or their wives were visiting the studio in the "no-no" days....

    So I'm watching an episode of MANNIX this morning, and what do I find? Leslie Parrish in what looks like the very same costume she'd worn in "Who Mourns For Anonais?"

    The MANNIX episode is "The Girl In The Frame" and is the final episode on the Season One DVD set.

    OMG it is! :lol: I wonder if they borrowed it, or if they gave it to her after her Trek episode. After all, nobody elkse could wear it like her!

    What about the cabaret girls' navels in "Shore Leave"?

    BTW, *those* costumes were pretty risque, too. Individual breasts covers with no straps or connections between them.

    But they were covered with little same-colored buttons:

    Seeing that MANNIX was also produced by Desilu/Paramount and was made at the exact same time as STAR TREK I'm not surprised.;)

    The only thing that surprised me was that Ms. Parrish is actually wearing the exact costume she wore in STAR TREK.

    I can understand actors rotating around from series to series, and costumes, sets, etc., being used mutliple times on various series. What's surprising here is the confluence of Ms. Parrish wearing the SAME costume in two different shows.

    Her STAR TREK would have been done early in the 1967-1968 season, while her MANNIX appearance was months later toward the end of that season.

    Everyone accused Irwin Allen for his using everything twice, yet it seems that other studios/producers were just as guilty - if there's even any guilt to be attached to the practice.

    Maybe she had so much fun filming "Adonais" that when the studio hired her for the MANNIX episode she requested the TREK costume be pulled from storage since she enjoyed it so much? Didn't Theiss custom-cut and fit it for her specifically?

    Just checking, I found the airdates were about 6 months apart (Star Trek on 22 September 1967 and Mannix on 16 March 1968) though the shooting dates could have been much closer and the Mannix ep's first showing delayed. TV in general and Trek in particular have a number of stories about something happening just because _________ happened to be in an adjacent soundstage that day, perhaps wearing _________ costume.

    I've had a few recent experiences with old TV shows "borrowing" from each other, or other sources:

    1) I watched an episode of "Mission: Impossible" (2nd season, I think) that was filmed on the "Hogan's Heroes" set. Talk about taking you our of the story (which in this case was one of their weaker ones, anyway).

    2) Watched an episode of "MacGyver" that used a bunch of the chase scenes from "The Italian Job". As they were climbing into the 3 Minis, I thought to myself, "Hey, I bet they're going to pay homage to "The Italian Job" here." Turned out they were just ripping it off.

    There was a Wild Wild Eest episode filmed in the set used for the Cestus III colony in "Arena." And when they opened the castle gates, there was Vasquez Rocks in the distnace. Gave me a big ol' smile.

    Speaking of the Vasquez Rocks.............

    I just saw the movie The Magnificent Seven Ride! http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0068897/

    And there you see Lee Van Cleef ride right in front of the famous Vasquez Rocks. I expected to see Kirk and the Gorn come out battling from behind the boulders. :lol:

    Vasquez Rocks is even in JAY & SILENT BOB STRIKE BACK of all films. The lead characters are even in a mobile diner named "The Arena" or something similar as Kevin Smith's loving nod to the classic TOS episode filmed there.:lol:

    Looks like they're wearing tribbles over their boobs.

    As for the belly-button ban, I believe it was in effect only during Trek’s first season. There were navels aplenty in seasons 2 and 3. Rowan and Martin’s Laugh-In debuted on NBC in the fall of 1968 and it had women dancing in bikinis all over the place.
