Recent revert (Jorg???) Edit
Just wondering, what was wrong with the latest changes that they required a reversion? For one thing, the episode citations were updated to what we're using now. Also, quite a bit of information was removed without explanation. So... what gives? Hmmm? --From Andoria with Love 01:34, 22 February 2007 (UTC)
Removed the following:
- Service Rank
Lemli's Starfleet service rank was never clearly established throughout the five-year mission. His uniform displayed no rank insignia and other officers did not normally address him by rank.
The lack of rank insignia suggests that Lemli could have been an ensign or a lieutenant junior grade. Since it is known that his service aboard the Enterprise existed between 2267 and 2269, it is also possible that Lemli might have been enlisted.
There is some debate as to whether Holloway portrayed other Star Trek characters instead of Roger Lemli. This is due to the fact that even though the scripts for "The Lights of Zetar", "The Savage Curtain" and "Turnabout Intruder" show Kirk referring to Holloway's character as "Mister Lemli", Kirk apparently calls him by a different surname in each of the three episodes.
In "The Lights of Zetar", it sounds as though Kirk addresses Holloway's character as "Mister Numny". In "The Savage Curtain", Kirk seems to refer to the same person as "Mister Mulney". For "Turnabout Intruder", he is apparently called "Mister Nunnely". These instances are further confirmed by the subtitles written for viewers with hearing difficulties in each episode.
These apparent mispronunciations by William Shatner seem even more ironic given the fact that Lemli was named after Shatner's three daughters.
Of course, this ambiguity might have been resolved if Holloway was given some sort of on-screen credit for his portrayal of the character. However, since "Lemli" sounds similar to "Numny", "Mulney" and "Nunnely", it could also be argued that Kirk, who commands a crew of over 400 people, might not have known Lemli well enough and simply mispronounced his surname.
This is all speculation or personal observation and analysis. --Alan 18:44, 7 February 2009 (UTC)
In The Ultimate Computer he serves as transporter chief to beam Robert Wesley aboard. Once Wesley is beamed aboard Kirk says to him "Ensign, you can go". If so could he be Ensign Lemli? -- Yarnek 11:40, 19 June 2009 (UTC)
WS' license plateEdit
Doubtful that even William Shatner could have gotten custom plates for his car during TOS production. Custom plates only became available in California some time after they changed license plates from yellow on black to yellow on blue, which only happened around 1970. knoodelhed (talk) 19:22, July 4, 2012 (UTC)
