Shortly before Fontana’s report, NBC had replaced its old Nielsen rating system with a new and updated one. When they ran the original figures through their new system they found out much to their surprise that it had not only reached full penetration into their most coveted target audience, the male population between 18 and 45, but also that the series had been one of the most successful series the network had ever aired. The sickening realization hit upon the dismayed network executives that they had slaughtered the proverbial goose that laid the golden eggs, something that every fan at the time could have told them.

Jason Isaacs says, “Fans are going to have to adjust”

Kurtzman says more Trek is possible, if people would stop crapping on this one:

“I think that’s totally possible, it was a really cool idea, but it wasn’t necessarily an idea that everyone immediately agreed with.”

“I think the idea might be that there are more Star Trek series [further down the line].”

Chris on Twitter: Two more observations about The Inner Light: only had one story and ZERO action in it. A lot can be said about that.

Which is a funnier episode: A Piece of the Action or The Trouble with Tribbles?
