Susan Oliver Documentary

So I only just found a 2014 documentary this weekend on Amazon Prime about the life of Susan Oliver (the woman who I am sure Trek fans recall as "Vina"). It's called "The Green Girl".  I had not known much about her before, and she was a very interesting person. Became a pilot and made some world records, tried to become a director but found it hard to make much headway & her life ended too soon because of cancer. If you are able to check it out, I highly recommend it!

'Cage' rewatch

So I missed this back in March - rewatch of the Cage.  Doesn't really say anything that hasn't been before.

In the comments, author Greg Cox says he has a Pike era TOS book coming out later this year, "Child of Two Worlds".

Thinking of The Cage...just one tiny detail.  Pike makes that silly statement about not being used to women on the bridge.  But last time I watched it I noticed that besides Cold and Number One there is one other woman on the bridge - an unnamed brunnette (who didn't get to utter a syllable onscreen) prints up something for Pike.  I don't recall seeing her again at any other point (granted, with my bad eyes I could easily have missed her if she were in a brief background shot) and I didn't find her credited at all on imdb.  So, I wonder who she was supposed to be and how Pike kind of overlooked that, gee, there's kinda  lot of women on the bridge...  That is just my very idle, pointless trivia for today.
