The funny part of the Desilu/Star Trek story is that Desilu was so flush with cash they were having a hard time figuring out what to spend it on. This is one of the reasons that the Star Trek original pilot ("The Cage") was the most expensive pilot in history to that date AND why they went ahead with an unheard-of SECOND pilot when network executives thought the first one was "too cerebral".
