    Kim Darby was also the mom on Better Off Dead. She was married to David Orgen Stiers. Giving that man another Star Trek connection.

    Hi Guys

    I think you mentioned the back lot set was owned by Desilu, but it was also the revamped exterior also used in Andy Griffith Show.

    Check out downtown Mayberry

    You can see Andy’s court house in the bottom pic, in the left part of the image.

    Cheers!

    I rather liked the episode Miri and found that I could forget the duplicated Earth just as well as the crew of the Enterprise did.

    It was the writer’s blatant statement against germ warfare experiments that were supposedly taking place here on our Earth during the cold war, it was a popular SciFi subject matter of the time.

    And even though the children of this Earth were given extended life spans I seemed to forgive the fact that they survived 300 years.

    In actuality they would not have give the fact that their society being similar to 1960 America would have production methods and food processes that the average teenager would be unable to figure out how to make work.

    Most children of that age could not make their own lunch without adult intervention.

    But those glaring problems aside I enjoyed the concept of the genetic engineering and the the unusual view into the leading character’s behavior during this story.

    Anybody else think that it was Dr. McCoy’s overdose of the serum that enabled him to be present at the launch of the Enterprise-D?

    This episode used to scare the crap outta me when I was a kid!

    I completely agree with the ultimate conclusion about this episode. Not much more than that to add. :)
