Dear Diary....
Today I am reading the draft script for the Star Trek episode A Piece of the Action and learned:
*The original title was Mission Into Chaos (and someone has handwritten the new title "A Piece of the Action" on the front of the script)
*No Terran book "Chicago Mobs of the Twenties" had been left behind by a Starfleet ship to mold the planet's culture along Earth lines. They apparently developed Chicago Mob culture on their own.
*Kirk had to deal with the Romulans who were trying to do a legal takeover of the planet (and failing that the Romulans were going to forcibly take it over). Kirk uses the presence of Romulans to get around the Prime Directive
*There was no card game called "Fizzbin" (it has another, lamer sounding name)
*And no awesome tag line about how one day the Iotians may want a "piece of our action".

All in all, I can see why some of these are first drafts.
