As story development proceeded on Star Trek V, Gene Roddenberry butted heads with Harve Bennett over themes of mutiny and religion. Replying to a list of TOS episodes sent by Harve's office, Gene employed Richard Arnold to research those themes in an attempt to steer Harve on a different course. Richard Arnold appears on this week's episode to add context and share background information on the TOS films!
