[probe_control] Episode guide
- Connie asked where I got the scripts. Gene Roddenberry's company Lincoln
Enterprises (which is still in business at <www.roddenberry.com>) added
Search and Kung Fu to it's catalog of scripts, film clips and other
things. I lost track of the company around 1975...by that time the only
mention of Search was clearance prices...since the show was running nowhere
in the USA. I made sure I got them all...I knew they would fade into time.
Anyway, below are the titles, the writers, and the descriptions from the
Lincoln Enterprises catalog of back then. The (2) next to some of the
titles means it was a second Probe Control set episode. And of course
(scanned) means I've scanned that script and sent it out. If you folks are
missing episodes, let me know. Some of the descriptions are
interesting. For instance "Short Circuit" says "a-bomb", when it was no
such thing...it was a device that caused any electronic device within range
to self-destruct. Also, I don't know if the final title of the Lockwood
episode below was "The Consortium" or "The Adonis File." The script says
Adonis was the final title, but we won't know until we see the
episode. Bryan found a TV Guide teletype item that makes reference to this
episode calling it Consortium...but then again the show was referred to as
Probe for many months before they started refering to it as Search.
