The Stuff Dreams Are Made Of...Kinda, 25 March 2013
Author: thebluesterman from right here

This episode was interesting/enjoyable to me for a couple of reasons. There were THREE...count 'em...three actor/actress persons in this episode who were also in some memorable Star Trek (original series) episodes. Teri Garr, Michael Ansara and Arlene what's her name that played Duprene, Mr. Spock's betrothed that wanted Ston instead. But, the really fun bits were the Demetrius and Quigg characters. They studied the Gutman/Joel Cairo characters in The Maltese Falcon well enough to make their nods to both of them pretty entertaining. I bet the casting people and script writers had fun with this. Star Trek and Maltese Falcon fans...enjoy!
