#3 Ms. Oliver was quite the aviator.

She flew solo across the Atlantic (single engine Aero Commander) in the '60s (apparently only the 4th woman to do so) and co-piloted a winning coast to coast derby race.

#5 Imagine a whole bunch of young guys growing up in the 60's(including me) and having Star Trek display beautiful women in skimpy costumes every week. Bless you Gene Roddenberry...

#7 ...There is a wonderful story about Ms. Oliver's brief appearance on Trek that still makes me smile fifty-something years later.

Seems when they got the first rushes back of her performance as the green Orion slave girl,..she came out as pink as the day she'd been born. The producers told the makeup people, who doubled down on their efforts.

A few hours later...she's pink again.

Now they were a bit mystified - this was costing time and money as well as taking a toll on Ms. Oliver, so they painted her up again and put a green filter on the camera just to be on the safe side. And one of the producers decided to follow the film through the developing process to see if something was wrong there.

Sure enough, they discovered an elderly gentleman back in the processing lab shop looked at the film, muttered to himself, "My God, that girl's GREEN again.." and prepared to develop the film so she'd come out a nice, normal pink. Apparently he couldn't quite get his head around the concept of green Orion slave girls.

#9 "Please notice that under green light,
Green aliens glow nearly white,
But turn that light red,"
Kirk's new commissar said,
"And they look almost black, amirite?"

#10 I still think Kirk's womanizing was intended to appeal to Desi Arnez.
