I didn't know that story Lee about Bixby's experience writing the episode. I decided to watch By Any Other Name and just finished. Fireworks hasn't started yet in the west coast! Agreed about the tonal change. It was a lot of fun and the Kelvin's didn't have a chance! I certainly noticed especially Kelinda and Rojan becoming less chalky and pasty and more tanned. Everyone certainly had fun in that one. The blu-ray really reveals the make-up changes. And the dark hair coloring they did for Rojan rubs off on Kirk's uniform during the fight, I think I mentioned that before. I can't help but see that everytime. I have the aptly themed Omega Glory playing now.
