For some reason I have the idea that in the 23rd Century space navy, female as well as male junior officers are called by the traditional “Mister”.

Where’d I get that?

Assuming that's not a rhetorical question, presumably from Mister Saavik in Wrath of Khan.

Lance Mannion

That's it! Thank you, David. Wasn't rhetorical. I honestly couldn't remember.


David beat me to it.
"Take her out, Mr. Saavik."

"This is how I’ve seen Sulu since I was a kid and, as I wrote in my warm-up post Captain Sulu, it was Gene Roddenberry’s plan for Sulu if the original series hadn’t been cancelled for him to become more of a leading man and do some Kirk-like swashbuckling and romancing on his own."

Since Roddenberry quit running TOS at the end of the second season, I find this extremely difficult to believe. It literally makes no sense, as Roddenberry couldn't have had "plans" for a job he deliberately quit.

"But Oliver Mannion tells me it was also part of the plan for Uhura to become more active and adventurous."

Same as previous comment. Roddenberry quit at the end of the second season. His only "plan" at the time was to sell Lincoln Enterprises merchandise.

"For some reason I have the idea that in the 23rd Century space navy, female as well as male junior officers are called by the traditional 'Mister'.

Where’d I get that?"

I'm not getting what the joke is here about WRATH OF KHAN.

"a melancholy that seemed to stem from Kirk’s awareness of the end for which he was heading.

'I’ll die alone,' he tells Spock and McCoy in The Final Frontier.

That day is still a long way off"

That day never arrived. Kirk died in the arms of Jean-Luc Picard.
