Default TOS locations?

Hi all

I was wondering the other day if anyone on here to provide me with some information. As you know, i am a BIG TOS fan and have watched each episode many times over.

However, I would love to know (after all these years!) where certain outside locations were filmed for various episodes. I was watching an episode the other night and it got me thinking.

Ive made a small list below so if you feel you can help id be delighted to hear from you. Thank you in advance.
* Operation Annihilate! - this location was a futuristic setting when they beamed down but im unsure where it was filmed. Is it still there?
* ShoreLeave?
* Fridays Child?
* This Side of Paradise?
* Alternative Factor/Arena - I think this is in North LA at a place called Vasquez Rocks- am i right?
* Miri - Is this the paramount backlot?

These are just a few i had in mind

Miri's outdoor locations were Mayberry (The Andy Griffith Show) with a bunch of junk on the ground....check the signage...and yes, that's a Paramount lot...it was also "New York" in City on the Edge of Forever.

I believe that Operation Annihilate! was filmed at UCLA and, as far as I know, it still exists....

If you watch "City," you'll see Kirk and Edith Keeler walk past Floyd's Barber Shop, Mayberry, North Carolina.

Hey thank you everyone for your kind replies.

Missiontrek08 - thanks for that link which was very interesting indeed. I enjoyed reading that.

Eliza - what does UCLA stand for/mean? Sorry!

cheers
