Over the years, "The Prisoner" has inspired many films, songs, and TV series. However, it was still a little surprising when an email dropped through The Unmutual Website's letterbox recently about a recent article in the "Star Trek Collection" DVD and magazine partwork issue 17.
The issue contains a feature and interview with Tracy Torme, who wrote several episodes for the "Next Generation" series. The episode "The Royale" was discussed and Tracy said he wanted to originally model the episode on "The Prisoner" episode "The Schizoid Man".
