It looks like Mindy's dad is wearing the helmet from "The Tholian Web" and the cheapo repurposed--shower curtain spacesuit from "The Naked Time."

Yeah!

The C-57D being reused in the tiny space ship Twilite Zone was a fun find, too. Just used one of the models laying around...

Cool.
When I saw the Forbidden Planet saucer on the Twilight Zone, I thought they had just standardized flying saucers.

IIRC, FB was one of Roddenberry's inspirations for ST in the first place

It could very well be the pilot. "The Captain of star cruiser C-57D, his First Officer and the ship's Doctor beam down...er, Star cruiser 57-D lands on a planet to evacuate a failed colony. Despite a murderous invisible creature, Dr. Morbius and his daughter do not wish to leave."

The film includes the wonderful line delivered by a swimming Anne Francis, "What's a bathing suit?"

Yes, I saw it again just a year or so ago, and Roddenberry's debt to it was very clear. It still holds up pretty well, too.
