Lee,

Thanks for the elaboration.  That's very well said.  You really ought to write some of your thoughts on TOS down in a book one day. :)

Like Nelson, I hadn't heard the bit about Bixby and Fontana either.  I decided to watch By Any Other Name last night, and right away noticed the credits for the teleplay at the beginning.

 

"Scott, that's an intriguing point about the make-up. I have only ever noticed the changes in Rojan's. The episode was also, as we once covered in a trivia question, the only one filmed by Keith Smith, and his lighting on the Enterprise sets may have been slightly different too."

I'm not convinced with regard to the shifts in gradation at this point.  The posters on the other Board (and me to some extent) may have overstated the apparent changes in make-up somewhat.  I too have noticed it mostly on Rojan, although I have seen differences in Tomar as well.  But these could very well be due to lighting.  Another thought I had was that perhaps the make-up was done on two (or more) different days of shooting, but I don't know the shooting schedule of that episode.

No question the makeup was done on different days. I don't know the shooting schedule either, but Warren Stevens must have been working at least four days of the six. He is in almost every location and has a lot of screen time. So you could certainly be right that the makeup was just darker on the days they filmed on the ship sets.

Like with most shows, Star Trek usually just credited the original writer unless there was an awfully extensive rewrite. (Notice that episodes we know were heavily revised, like Shore Leave and City on the Edge, were not even given split credits.) So when an episode is co-credited to Fontana or Coon or Roddenberry or Carabatsos, or whoever was on staff at the time, it's a good bet that there were significant changes beyond just dialogue or even the resolution of the plot.

This system has been bugging me the last few days. The Marcus System.

It seems the Marcus System comes up a lot. Unless the Marcus 3 that the Enterprise is late in delivering the medicines to is a different Markus system that the children from the tragic events on Triacus want to go to; the colony on Marcus 12.

Perhaps spelling and children pronunciation variations makes them different?

I always thought they were different because of the pronunciations, but maybe Commissioner Ferris spent a lot of time in Boston...anyway, another point for Makus (or Marcus) III.

Okay, I had to look it up. It explains Pamelyn Ferdin's pronunciation; Markos XII

Lee and Nelson,

Where are you guys with regard to the current trivia question?  I have been remiss! :)

No, I was remiss in asking a two-week question! I have 8 or 9 more Federation planets on my list, and am ready to give hints if desired.

Okay, 8 or 9 gives me a sense of how many are left. I am definitely game to keep guessing without hints.

Did Scott get Markos XII already. I looked, but didn't see it.

I had given you credit for it on June 16th, Nelson, although now I see that you probably meant the Galileo Seven one instead. In any case, you now have both of them.

Thanks, all those Markus and Markos planets were confusing me! Wow, how organized of you to know the dates too!

Yes! If they have fundamental declarations, we know they exist. And in the context of Cogley's speech, they seem very likely to be part of the Federation, as he speaks of them in terms of a shared tradition of liberty.

The home world of the giant worm of Antos IV? :), I know, it's not clear if people were on Antos IV.

Then is might follow that Alpha III's statutes also might count?

I think Whom Gods Destroy proves there are people on Antos IV, but it also seems to imply that they are not members of the Federation, at least at that point.

Alpha III would take advantage of the Martian Colonies precedent.

I forgot about the Whom Gods Destroy Antos IV reference! And Garth nearly destroyed them!

The mass insanity swept: the Beta Portilin System, Levinius V, Theta Cygni XII and Ingraham B.

Of course Beta Portilin probably is Pre-Federation.

Tricky! I hadn't considered them. But it seems like Ingraham B and maybe Theta Cygni XII could reasonably be assumed to be in the Federation. Levinius V can't be because if there was a Federation 200 years ago, Zefrem Cochrane would have heard of it.
