I remember actually watching this show, but not all of the content. I do remember DeForest Kelley's comment about an episode meeting Jesus, though.

This was before any of the movies, and the state of Star Trek was very much early and its place in TV and science fiction history had not been established. I found it interesting to look at what was being discussed, and how things turned out, to see who had a better understanding of the future of Star Trek.

It's got Walter Koenig, James Doohan, DeForest Kelley from the show, Harlan Ellison, who wrote one episode, and Al Shuster who started a series of Star Trek conventions.

I haven't watched the video yet but one thing that I believe most people are not aware about is that the 70's was a very lean decade professionally for the former cast of ST: TOS. Even Shatner and Nimoy were relegated to doing mostly tv show guest spots and tv movies until ST: TMP was finally greenlit by Paramount.

At the time of the recording, 1976, Star Trek was in syndication only and partly kept alive by Star Trek Conventions. That, the conventions, was (as far as I know) was then a totally new phenomenon. No previous TV show had caused people to gather at conventions, especially after the show had gone off air.

I watched about the first 20 minutes of the interview last night. Snyder was a fantastic host and the comments from Doohan, Kelly and Koenig were quite interesting. It was also interesting to me to listen to Doohan with his natural/native accent for a prolonged period of time.

LOL Why am I not surprised? Harlan was just a bit "highly opinionated" in pretty much all matters. biggrin
