Where No Man Has Gone Before (TOS episode)[edit]

Hello. Thanks for the work on Where No Man Has Gone Before (TOS episode). You may have or may not have noticed that I've requested Wikipedia:Peer review on it, with an eye to nominating it as a featured article in future. Any comments you might have on it, or leads for more information I could add, would be great. Thanks! Morwen - Talk 16:36, 13 December 2006 (UTC)

To boldly go[edit]

My understanding is that the narration in the February 1966 cut was basically an extended version of the "Captain's Log" entry that made it into the final cut.

Now, this narration :

"Space: the final frontier. These are the voyages of the starship Enterprise. Its five year mission: to explore strange new worlds... to seek out new life, and new civilizations... to boldly go where no man has gone before."

There are memos in Inside Star Trek detailing how was developed, in August 1966.interweb has it

I think the article used to be saying that the credits narration was a cut down version of Kirk's initial narration in the Feb 66 cut : this also seems to be what you are implying in your last edit. The textual history presented in Inside Star Trek doesn't support that idea. Morwen - Talk 10:02, 18 December 2006 (UTC)

Ok, this edit changed

"The episode's name is the first usage of the phrase "Where No Man Has Gone Before" in Star Trek. The phrase would be incorporated into the opening credits sequence in following episodes, as part of a longer voice-over given by Captain Kirk"

to have "shorter" instead of "longer".

My intent behind this sentence is to note that

  • the episode coined the phrase "Where no man has gone before"
  • then in August when they were scrabbling around for a catchy credits voice-over they used the episode name "where no man has gone before" as part of the phrase
  • this is not in any way linked with any of the narrations at the start of "Where No Man Has Gone Before"

The 'longer' in my version is comparing the voiceover in the subsequent episodes to the episode name. I don't know what 'short' compares with : it seems to be saying that there "Space: The Final Frontier" speech is a cut-down version of some other narration, which it patently isn't. (it has somewhat similar thematic content to Kirk's log entry at the start of the Executive's cut, I'll grant, but none of the wording is the name, and we get a cut down version of that log entry in the final episode anyway) Morwen - Talk 21:23, 18 December 2006 (UTC)

Ok. By the way, may I note that is an excellent resource you have there. I noticed the other day that we had acquired a list at List of Star Trek: The Original Series episodes of unproduced scripts/stories - it seems entirely genuine and fits with material I have read elsewhere but was uncited - I wonder if you could help find a source for it? Morwen - Talk 23:01, 18 December 2006 (UTC)
Ah, yes, I'd expected that might be the case. I'm wondering now as to how easy it is for other people to get hold of these scripts legitimately? I'm guessing not easy. Perhaps just citing that website will be the best option for now. Morwen - Talk 23:48, 18 December 2006 (UTC)

If is selling copies of unproduced or other people's that's certainly good enough for me (although he it may not be good enough for Harlan). Morwen - Talk 23:55, 18 December 2006 (UTC)

Tania Lemani[edit]

Hi, what's your source for Tania Lemani being in STOGAM, please? She's not mentioned in the reference you cited, nor have I found any other corroboration. Fayenatic london (talk) 20:43, 26 May 2007 (UTC)

OK, thanks. I have trouble with these Ref tags too. They have to be <ref name="my name"> ... </ref> around the first ref. <ref name="my name"/> to re-use it - note different positions of "/". Hope this helps! - Fayenatic london (talk) 22:31, 26 May 2007 (UTC)


Updated DYK query On July 2, 2007, Did you know? was updated with a fact from the article Charles W. Lindberg, which you created or substantially expanded. If you know of another interesting fact from a recently created article, then please suggest it on the Did you know? talk page.

The Cloud Minders[edit]

Thank you for your revert of my edit and your explanation. I was so silly not following the link Star Trek: Enterprise when I made my edit, otherwise I would have noticed myself that not TOS was meant. Maybe I was a bit confused because here in the german television, TOS was broadcasted under the title "Raumschiff Enterprise", literally "Starship Enterprise" – it took some time before I learned that its real title was "Star Trek", and I still sometimes mix it up... --Cyfal (talk) 15:15, 13 January 2008 (UTC)

  • No worry, Cyfal, I can't count the number of little mistakes I've made. Best. Sir Rhosis (talk) 16:45, 13 January 2008 (UTC)


Please stay away from my liver! Cheers! --Kevin Murray (talk) 00:50, 9 May 2008 (UTC)

re: your note[edit]

I saw the note you left on the Gordon Scott page about the photo. If you'd contact me through the email link on the left side of my talk page, I'll send my regular email address and be glad to upload the photo for you.

re: Houlihan vs. O'Houlihan[edit]

Maybe it's just me then.. I guess I don't pay enough attention to the dialogue. Maybe I need to listen closer next time I watch it. Thank you for your explanations. (Professor2789 (talk) 22:24, 27 May 2008 (UTC))

Tarzan Films[edit]

(copied with reply from my own talk page.—BPK2.)

  • You changed my edit about Tarzan in the original novel. Have you even read it? You stated disinformation. I referenced the first book of Tarzan, your revision was the disinformation . . . Ncsr11 (talk) 21:36, 18 July 2016 (UTC)
    • I have the novel TotA on disk. A word search shows that the word "Bowie" (as in Bowie knife) does not appear in the novel. Any reference to a knife only refers to one. The words "leopard" and "skin" do not appear together. The words "temple" and "ruins" do not appear either. So, what version are you reading that states this? Sir Rhosis (talk) 22:49, 18 July 2016 (UTC)

Hi, glad to see another fan of the movies has been creating articles. I've done quite a few myself recently, including all three of Mike Henry's. Hey, I was planning to do articles on Buster Crabbe's "Tarzan the Fearless" and Glenn Morris' "Tarzan's Revenge" in the next couple days. I wanted to get with you and make sure I didn't step on your toes in case you were planning to do them. Let me know. Thanks. Sir Rhosis (talk) 07:36, 6 June 2008 (UTC)

  • I went ahead and created the articles. Again, hope you weren't planning to. Sir Rhosis (talk) 12:06, 6 June 2008 (UTC)
Nope, no problem. Will be interested in reading the articles. Thanks for checking. BPK (talk) 18:10, 6 June 2008 (UTC)
  • Hi, me again. I'm getting ready to do the article for Tarzan and the Huntress, so by the time you're up and read this, hopefully that link won't be red. Wanted to run a couple things by you. One: I'm considering writing an article for the cheapie 1999 Sony Wonder animated film called "Tarzan of the Apes." Yes, it was cheesy and has no voice credits and would be a skimpy article, BUT it was made with ERB Inc.'s permission and is an "official" release, just like the other animated Tarzan films. Would you consider putting it in your Tarzan film box if I do the article? Two, have you ever considered doing a film box (I'm talking about that big blue box you made and attached to all the Tarzan film articles, in case my inaccurate language may confuse you) for the various Tarzan TV shows. There'd be the Ely series, the "Lord of the Jungle" Saturday morning series, the Joe Lara Tarzan in Manhattan telefilm, the Tarzan the ecologist series with the tick mark over the second "a", the Joe Lara 1996 "Epic Adventures" series and finally the early 2000s animated series based on the Disney film. Just thought it might be something you would like to do. I could give it a go if you don't want to, but I'm fairly slow at these things -- whenever I create a film article, I just copy and paste an old one into the new article's blank box and go through and change the names, dates, casts, plot, etc., by hand. Anyway, I enjoy your articles. Your plots synopses are so much better than mine -- I just put enough in there to get by with, meaning to expand them someday. Best to you. Sir Rhosis (talk) 09:48, 9 June 2008 (UTC)
Hi, Sir R. To answer your questions in turn:
1. Yes, it does sound like the Sony Wonder film ought to be in the film box. If you notify me when the article is done, I will see to it.
2. I think I will leave the box on the TV shows to someone more knowledgable on them; if you want to do one, it's fine with me.
Thanks for the kind comments. When I've done Tarzan film articles I've usually looked for information on the films on the net, starting with the IMDb, gone through all the plot descriptions, and written a new one based on all the relevent material. I may go back and give similar treatment to some of the articles others have created where the plot descriptions are skimpy.
BPK (talk) 13:36, 9 June 2008 (UTC)
Okay, I've added it to the film box, and also corrected the preceded by/followed by links in Tarzan and the Lost City and Tarzan to take it into account. BPK (talk) 18:12, 9 June 2008 (UTC)

Not a problem[edit]

You're welcome. Leonard(Bloom) 01:10, 10 September 2008 (UTC)

I have a quick question. Do you have a copy of Shadow of Suribachi: Raising the Flags on Iwo Jima? If so, can you isolate facts used in William Genaust? That would make referencing it much easier, seeing as the 'book' citation template calls for page numbers. Leonard(Bloom) 01:28, 10 September 2008 (UTC)
Thank you very much for the pg. numbers! I can ref' it! Woo! Nothing gives more pleasure. :D Leonard(Bloom) 01:54, 10 September 2008 (UTC)

ST TAS[edit]

Is it true that ST TAS is still *Not* part of Star Trek canon? (It is featured on the site but that is all AFAIK) I think Roddenberry didn't take it seriously even though he produced the shows. In wiki's article on it, I had removed a comment that it was now Canon...but someone (MikeW) soon reverted my edit as you can see in the article's history

  • Is my understanding correct? I could revert Mike's actions but he would soon revert mine. The url footnote Mike cites doesn't really claim that TAS was Canon...I think. (just that the star trek site now acknowledges its existence) Any ideas? PS: I've never seen the show myself but the fact it won Star Trek's first Emmy says to me it was not bad at all.

Logan's Run - Carrousel vs carrousel[edit]

Have a look at and tell if if I'm wrong about the lowercase c for carrousel... Londonclanger (talk) 12:47, 22 November 2010 (UTC)

  • I also answered on your talk page. Let it be known I admit my mistake -- I was wrong, and Londonclanger was correct. I must pay more attention (and quit relying on memory). Sir Rhosis (talk) 19:16, 22 November 2010 (UTC)
    • Nary a worry, my good man. Would you mind awfully updating the Logan's Run page with the lowercase c. Much obliged. Londonclanger (talk) 22:28, 22 November 2010 (UTC)
      • Hello again. I've just noticed a load of edits made by an unregistered user to the Logan's Run page. I feel the edits don't add a great deal apart from minor, unnecessary detail (and a copious amount of typos and grammatical errors). I'm in half a mind to undo the lot. Just asking for your opinion. Have a look and let me know what you think (I'll check back here tomorrow). Londonclanger (talk) 16:27, 15 December 2010 (UTC)

Hi Sir Rhosis. From what I've gathered 'Tarzan and the Brown Prince' DID get authorisation from ERB to use the name. According to Steve Hawkes/Sipek, with the first one one story was that they didn't have enough money, another story was some con men our unscrupulous businessmen (tautology?) took money from the producers when they met in Rome to use the name of Tarzan and absconded with the money.

As a lifelong Tarzan fan having seen all the sound Tarzans, it was a surprise coming across it at the local cinema in Suva, Fiji in the '70s. I had read in I think, Gabe Essoe's 'Tarzan of the Movies' that there had been some unauthorised Indian made Tarzans. As Fiji has a large Indian community I thought it may well have been one of them, but was pleasantly surprised to see it. At the time it seemed a cross between 'Daktari' and 'Tarzan's Three Challenges'.

Also in all the publicity of Sipek/Hawkes dealings with his tigers on his property, Time and the Chicago Tribune stated he had appeared in Tarzan films, unlike say, the films that Joe Robinson made where he was christened someone else.

So, long story short, I strongly believe that this is an 'authorised' Tarzan, though it to my knowledge had no USA or UK release by one of their studios.Foofbun (talk) 04:42, 18 February 2011 (UTC)

Listen, Ellen speaking. I still don't like that horrible computer animated remake to my favorite Disney movie. I don't like the plot and I hated how this happening! It's just a horrible film!! — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 19:59, 7 November 2013 (UTC)

  • No one says you have to like it. I may hate it, myself, when I do see it. But if you're the person who keeps adding "The film has a negative reaction" to the "Reception" section, then realize that you MUST cite it with a link to an article, a film review, or something of that nature from a reputable source. Period, end of discussion. Sir Rhosis (talk) 00:26, 8 November 2013 (UTC)

But there's a 3D re-release of Disney's 1999 version of Tarzan next year. Disney's working on it for a theatrical 3D re-release. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 13:31, 8 November 2013 (UTC)

Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home[edit]

Even when the novel is the novel of the film? I'm pretty sure that a novelisation of a film is still canonical. Not picking a fight, just asking a question. a_man_alone (talk) 08:45, 2 January 2012 (UTC)

  • No fight at all. We just reasonably disagree. The authors often flesh out the screenplays with their own material, especially Vonda N. MacIntyre. I've seen novel info put into sections called "Apocrypha" sections. Perhaps you could do that. Best. Sir Rhosis (talk) 15:43, 2 January 2012 (UTC)

Quentin Smith (American military) redirect[edit]

While searching for Quentin Smith, I came across this redirect, at first I thought of placing a Hatnote because of two similar title-sharing pages. But I'm quite puzzled as to its relation to the target article, could you elaborate? It seems unnecessary and if it's distantly related, maybe it should be RFDed or CSDed? Sincerely, Ugog Nizdast (talk) 13:57, 20 July 2014 (UTC)

  • I'm honestly at a loss. I do not recall ever seeing this article before or having redirected it. Perhaps I did, but I don't remember. Sir Rhosis (talk) 16:33, 20 July 2014 (UTC)
Then I shall CSD it, per G8 or this discussion (or if that isn't appropriate, RFD it). Hope there's nothing else regarding it. Good day, Ugog Nizdast (talk) 16:57, 20 July 2014 (UTC)
    • The only thing I can think is perhaps one day I saw that the name incorrectly directed to the philosopher, also named Quentin Smith, and that this Quentin Smith had no article of his own, but rather was connected to the Tuskegee Airmen, so maybe I directed it there.

  • Sorry it has taken me a while to respond. I agree with you. I hate his pedantic rewording. For example, he feels a need to constantly put something like "They raised the flag and flagpole" in all the articles having to do with the famous Iwo Jima photo by Joe Rosenthal. Christ, just say "They raised the flag." The articles already describe how they used a pipe for a flagpole, so one can easily assume that they didn't raise the damned thing without it being attached to it!
