    49 pounds of hasenpfeffer? Probably need Kirk’s phaser rifle to kill it.

    It’s all those martinis that put on the 49 pounds.

    Looks like Kirk’s phaser rifle was from the episode “Where No Man Has Gone Before”, which was actually the 2nd pilot made to sell the show. The phaser rifle was called for by Mr. Spock, since he felt that the growing god-like powers of Lt. Gary Mitchell would soon overwhelm any chance they had of stranding him (Mitchell) on the planet “Delta Vega”. The 1st pilot was later converted into a 2 part episode called The Menagerie. And now you know “the rest of the story ..”

    A second pilot was unheard of back then, or even now.
    NBC really didn’t want the show and tried to cancel it after one season, but a writing campaign saved it, twice.

    Lost in Space was way more successful.

    Rabbit stew recipe here.

    Or use this….


    Fried Rabbit

    Like fried chicken, this tastes good served hot or cold. (note within the recipe)<br

    (SERVES FOUR TO FIVE)

    4-pound (1 3/4 kg) domestic rabbit, in serving pieces (emphasis is mine)
    4 tablespoons flour
    Salt
    Freshly ground pepper
    3 tablespoons shortening

    Wipe the rabbit pieces with a damp towel and pat dry.
    Lightly dust each piece with flour and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
    Heat the shortening in a large skillet, then add the rabbit and brown.
    Lower the heat and fry, turning often, for 25 minutes or until the juices run clear when a small slit is made in the thick part of the thigh.

    Although it was indeed the second in terms of production order, “Where No man Has Gone Before” was the third broadcast after “The Man Trap” and “Charlie X.” “The Man Trap” was 6 and “Charlie X” was 8. If you ever get a chance, watch them in order. You’ll see where the idea of red shirts always getting killed and Grace Lee Whitney being a more important character than she really was. In the first cast, toward the middle of the first season several episodes where red shirts died on away missions were clumped together although they were not produced that way. As far as Grace Lee Whitney goes the episodes she acted in were produced early on but spread out throughout the season giving the impression that she was on the Enterprise doing other things until Kirk needed a Yeoman..

    I wonder if the man that made the prop had any idea what it would be worth some day.

    I loved the design of that phaser rifle and was sad when it never reappeared. Also liked that Second Pilot too.

    Don’t Welsh rabbits weight on average 20 lbs?
