Harlan Ellison Wins "City on the Edge of Forever" Suit

The long-fought suit over merchandising and other rights to Harlan Ellison's great "City on the Edge of Forever" episode of Star Trek has been ruled in Ellison's favor, reports Slice of Sci Fi.

Ellison sued Paramount Pictures over the various spinoff merchandising to his story, which regularly ranks as one of the -- if not the -- best episode of the Trek series. He also sued the Writers Guild of America for not living up to its duties to defend his interests.

Ellison sued for the whopping price of ... wait for it ... $1, plus costs.
