One of the better episodes with just a little bit of humor.

The man in this picture looks very different that the man show in other photos standing with William Shatner.
Is he the same one?

RIP. The episode he was in, “Tomorrow is Yesterday” has one of my all time favourite scenes in TOS when they accidentally beam up the Air Force sergeant and the Englishman who was controlling the transporter offers the sergeant some chicken soup. The cracker jack attitude of transporter chief (John Winston) and the look on the sergeant’s face are absolutely priceless, IMHO.

DC Fontana wrote that who is a woman who wrote a lot of stuff for Star Trek. Dororthy Fontana who used initials in her name to avoid sex bias by Democraps in Hollywood. She also wrote my favorite Star trek episode of all time "This side of paradise" which was a huge dig at the hippy drug movement at the time, and even addiction how the real cost is wasted time. Brilliant episode. She's still around too, still writing.........

I agree that also was a good episode.

There were some good ones and some weak ones. I did like the series. Have not liked any of the sequels.
