STAR TREK nearly always had titles that smacked of a literary bent.  Then, admittedly, there were a few like “Spock’s Brain,” but they were the exception.

Via Mona the Monkey: A fairly decent Star Trek TOS third season entry. While the underlying premise was old hat to sci fi fans, the “’world’ is actually a generation starship / conceptual breakthrough” trope was pretty high-concept for 1968 broadcast television.

Memory Wall

Memory Wall:

Trekkie Guy has an online memorial to the numerous actors and other contributors to the original Star Trek series who have died.

Given that the show aired half a century ago, there’s no particular reason to be surprised by the number of entries. But for some reason it’s still a bit unnerving to see pictures of young guest stars whom you vividly remember and then to read they died a few years ago in their 80s.
