Background information Edit
Worene was played by stunt actress Paula Crist. The alien, including the name, was her own creation. Crist was originally supposed to be a bridge alien but that part went to the Vegan ensign played by Billy Van Zandt. Gene Roddenberry was impressed by the alien though, and she still managed to appear on screen in the rec dec scene. On the day of filming, actress Paula Crist told Dennis Fischer that her species was "Czintii" (which he assumed was not intended to be related to the Kzinti). He thought she resembled a female Tellarite.
