These episodes were rejected for being too silly or farfetched for the original series.
1- The Enterprise is taken over by hippies- no wait, that happened.
2- Spock’s brain is stolen and- sorry, that was an episode.
3- A woman takes over Kirk’s body and he acts feminine and – oops, they did that one.
4- The Enterprise is taken over by children who worship an alien played by a fat divorce attorney. My bad, that aired too.
5- The crew meets space-Abraham Lincoln and sheesh, that was an episode too? And it also had space-Genghis Khan?
6- Kirk meets a man named Mudd who’s henpecked by a robot duplicate of his ex-wife… no, no that was done.
7- Nazi Planet. Seriously? They did a Nazi Planet?
8- Alien flowers turn Spock into a romantic poet. No way, really?
9- The ship is taken over by immobile breeding cotton balls, while everyone in the crew knows about a new form of wheat except Kirk. Hard to believe, but that’s a story.
10- McCoy sees a giant rabbit, Sulu fights a samurai, Don Juan woos a crewman, and Kirk beats up a bully in some sort of bizarre amusement park. Wait, that’s not an episode of Scooby Doo? They did that on Star Trek? I give up.
