    I will admit that I've been admiring a plain old little yellow duck night light. Can't be a coincidence - now I must have it

    His own fight scenes. Watch Space Seed again and the fight with Khan in the engine room. Oh boy, the tricks our minds played on us when all we had was those small old tube TVs.

    Harlan Ellison was a whiner all the time and his stories were never as good as a lot of other writers. It is amazing that Gene Rodenbury even asked him for a story.

    Lolita Fatjo could have done a better job.

    Harlan Ellison did write some creepy stuff. I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream. Eeeeeeee. Worms, thick & ropey. Bleech. I also recall him running with a street gang as a youth and writing about it. Been a long time. Good writer that's a improbable fit for TV. Might have to go revisit some of that.

    He was the one who wrote Babylon 5 the first couple of seasons. Dark, dreary future is all he could see. I remember hearing him on an interview and he spent the whole time complaining about some stalker woman, really crazy woman did some strange things to his mail box. But he came off as a whiner, whined about his jobs etc. Not a fun interview like most sci fi authors.

    If Captain James T Kirk was instead Captain Sally Shatner.

    I watched 2/3 of For the Love of Spock and there was an interesting explanation of the Vulcan hand gesture.
    What is the origin of the Vulcan hand greeting in “Star Trek”? | Watch | The Take.

    In For the Love of Spock George Takei talked about homosexual paintings of Kirk & Spock at Star Trek conventions.
