Aldrin says that only he was given a verbal script. He says that the activities during the telecast were planned. Fun, entertaining stuff, did you expect them to just sit there for the whole half hour? This telecast was made shortly after leaving Earth orbit. The only thing to look at was the Earth and the inside of the CM. The later transmissions were from lunar orbit, they didn't have to put on a show, the Moon itself was enough of one.
Neil relates that most of the telecast seem improvised but Aldrin notes that "we went to great lengths" to make it look that way. "The fact is they were carefully planned and for me the exact words were written down..."
Even though the requirement to record mission audio on the older 1-inch 30-track format was replaced by a newer system, there remained a historical need to capture and preserve the original audio. NASA recognized this need and soon came to realize that the only way to preserve the older audio was to transfer the 1-inch 30-track tapes to a newer format.
Looks an awful lot like the Starship Enterprise to me. Oh I know... that's what NASA has been hiding all this time They formed Star Fleet and have a fleet of ships out there hogging up all the glory for themselves...
