Something like that... The only reason I know this is because I read about it once in a scriptwriting class I took. It sort of stuck with me because I remember watching that episode on reruns when I was little. Plus I've recently been reading about Harlan Ellison. I honestly haven't watched an episode of Star Trek since I was like 13. You are both correct. It was Ellisons script that won. I encourage anyone to pick up some of Ellisons stuff. The Essential Ellison is great. And if you ever get a chance to meet Ellison in person, jump at it. The Deathbird and Neither Your Jenny Nor Mine deserve special consideration. As far as Star Trek, I always had a weakspot for Arena and Dagger of the Mind.
