Wasn't it originally a pilot?
They got rid of everyone except Spock and reused bits of it for the later episode.
Do you think we'll see Captain April?
I only saw the first season of the one with Scott Bakula. It wasn’t that I didn’t like it, I missed the second season and it was about half way through when I realised it had started.
it’s really hard boiled, not to everyone’s taste.
The character I really like in that one is the Caitian doctor. She's as irritable as McCoy was.
