Murray Leinster (June 16, 1896 - June 8, 1975) was the nom de plume of William Fitzgerald Jenkins, an American science fiction and alternative history writer.
In 2000, Leinster's heirs sued Paramount Pictures over the film Star Trek: First Contact, claiming that as the owners of the rights to Leinster's short story "First Contact", it infringed their trademark in the term.
The court found that regardless of whether Leinster's story first coined "first contact", it since became a generic (and therefore unprotectable) term that described the overall genre of science fiction in which humans first encounter alien species.

Their most successful Chief, Art Caomhánach Mac Murchadha, or "Art Kavanagh MacMurrough" (+1416/7), succeeded in resisting Richard II of England, and in creating a relatively secure territory in Wexford and Carlow, from which he and his successors were able to menace the English Pale and extract regular "fl rents," until late in the 16th century.

 The Time Tunnel by Murray Leinster
Leinster also allows them to carry earring aids and ‘picture tubes’ - we call them video cameras these days - so the home team can see what is happening and can advise them.
In a direct comparison to the series, which relied more on the Tunnel to watch events, this is more a demonstration of Leinster considering how things would probably be done than under a TV budget.
As the interest in reading this book was to see what had sparked their interest while planning the re-make, it looks like they might well stay with Leinster’s time fulfilment doing something that would otherwise remain unexplained before moving on or returning to the Project.
