You are right, except he is telling the story chronologically (ETA- I see, the first paragraph from Farr does not come before the second chronologically.) Farr says that they got the script just before (maybe a few minutes, whatever) the scene was shot, rather than well in advance. Got script- were shocked- went and set up scene.

For Mr. Grey: It was still a surprise in that sense, but the legend that is not true is that none of the cast except Burgoff knew at all until Radar said "There were no survivors," so that the live reaction was caught on film. That part is (apparently) not true.
