Yep. In some ways it was rougher than the Jeffrey Hunter pilot, and they made wholesale changes afterward. Uniforms were awful, weapons looked like they were straight out of a 50's sci-fi movie, there was a different doctor, no Uhura, Sulu was a department head instead of the helmsman, there were clearly typewritten reports on the view screens, they had a regular pillow and blanket on Mitchell's bed in sick bay, main view screen was tiny. Kudos to whoever changed all that crap once the show got picked up.
