||No one in
the cast and crew expected this to be the final episode, in fact,
a number of story ideas had already been thrown around for the fourth
season, such as the introduction of Dr. McCoy's daughter Joanna
and a follow-up to "The
Trouble With Tribbles." (Both became elements of "Star
Trek: The Animated Series.) NBC cancelled the show shortly before
summer hiatus due to the low ratings. Even though the show did not
have the 100 episodes required for syndication, Paramount sold it
as such anyway, where it usually enjoyed much better timeslots than
it did during its first-run. Popularity for the show mounted and
mounted, eventually resulting in the first "Star Trek"
conventions, "Star Trek:
The Animated Series", "Star
Trek: The Motion Picture" and
its nine sequels, and "Star
Trek: The Next Generation" and its four spin-offs.
