Why didn't they have cameras in the capsule?
I wanted to see Shatner weightless.
And, if by some small miracle he threw up all over the place....
That would have been a meme for the ages...
Maybe that's the reason it took 25 min to let them out. Wet wipes all 'round.

Well.... almost no one.

Minor actor, step above an Extra, contract limited appearances to a maximum number of episodes.
Gets jealous because Kirk got promoted to Admiral.
Gets butt-hurt when Gene agreed to make him captain, but doesn't think he's getting enough screen time.
Butt hurt because he's captain of a ship *not* the Enterprise, in a movie ABOUT a ship that *is* the Enterprise.

Even Doohan was not cast in a starring role and did not appear in evert episode... same for Nichols, Koenig, Barrett.....
There were three names in the opening credits listed as "Starring", and none of them were Takei

Why even bother to separate the capsule? Add a little more fuel and run a powered descent and landing. If something goes sideways, the LES can punch them out for a capsule-only parachute landing at either end of the profile.
Maybe the Columbia launch explosion was in their minds. They wanted a quick separation and the best O-rings ever made.

This will be exciting news one, maybe two more times.

Then someone's gotta die before we take notice again.,
Unless they film people having sex.
That always gets attention for a moment.
