Star Trek to Writers: Go Boldly
Classic Star Trek sounds a lot like 21st-century Star Trek: “We maintain a fast pace … avoid long philosophical exchanges or tedious explanations of equipment. And note that our cutting technique is to use the shortest possible time between idea and execution.”
From slatevault:

Producers of the original Star Trek series distributed this photocopied guide to the show’s writers in 1967. They were all on a major mission to avoid cheesiness and scientific error. (Also forbidden: uniforms with pockets.) http://slate.me/YToqxJ
