About SF Debris


  1. I’m pretty sure the Uhura scene got cut out of the syndicated version in my market. I don’t recall ever seeing it growing up.

    At least the episode gave us this:

    • Most of Chekov’s interaction with his drill thrall disappears in the syndicated edit too.

      In the HD transfer, you can see the wires that were used to power the light-up collars. The reason they’re only tugging at the collars with one hand is because the other hand is working the switch that turns on the lights.

      After the big deal in the final battle about stepping on the wrong colors, is it only me that’s bugged by it never coming up? And that they do step on the wrong colors?

  2. No joke. I think this might have been the first episode of the series I ever saw, and it totally sold me on the series.

    The only thing that could have been a bigger selling point would be a time travel comedy action episode in which the crew meets Adam West Batman.
