Star Trek TOS/TAS Lists of Lists

DISCLAIMER: "Star Trek", "Enterprise", and all other related items are
copyright and trademarks of Paramount Communications. Any infringement of
these lists on Paramount's legitimate copyright and trademarks is purely
unintentional, and will be corrected upon proper notification. These lists are
for the enjoyment of the reader only, and may not be sold.
This is the Star Trek TOS/TAS List of Lists. It contains a listing of all
the episodes for both the original and the animated Star Trek TV series, plus
some added notes. (Due to the length considerations, there is a separate
Movies, TNG, and DS9 List of Lists). Regretibly, this is the final edition.
If you are wondering why I compile these lists, it is strictly out of the
enjoyment of "Star Trek", and the wealth of information from other Star Trek
fans who post on the electronic networks. After being irritated by the
ever-constant requests for episode lists on Usenet, I decided in the middle of
1990 to post a list of episodes on a regular basis. It soon grew from that,
and, with the contributions of other people, these lists grew to what you see
today. (And they're still growing). The only payment I ask is thanks and
contributions. I am not making a dime off these compilations.
Did you know: In PDP-11 assembly language, there was a set of instructions
that were specifically implemented for making linked lists. A linked list is a
list that points to either another list or a piece of data. In the instruction
manuals I read, these were referred to as "lists of lists" (unless, of course,
the linked list pointed only to data). (Thanks to Paul Hoffman)

"For one quarter of a century, they have thrilled us with their adventures,
amazed us with their discoveries, and inspired us with their courage. Their
ship has journeyed beyond imagination. Her name has become legend, her crew,
the finest ever assembled. We have traveled beside them from one corner of the
galaxy to the other. They have been our guides, our protectors, and our
friends. Now you are invited to join them for one last adventure. For at the
end of history lies the undiscovered country."

Episode synopsis by Edward Champion.
The pilot episode, "The Cage", was made as the first Star Trek pilot, which
was seen originally by NBC executives. They rejected that pilot, but asked for
a second pilot to be made ("Where No Man Has Gone Before"). Later on, in the
first season, production delays required that, in one week's time, two
episodes had to be made. Thus, "The Cage" was edited and made a part of "The
Menagerie". Only a black and white work print existed of scenes not used in
"The Menagerie." In 1986, it was released by Paramount Home Video as it was
releasing the entire TOS series on videocasette, which combined all related
color footage from "The Menagerie" and filled in all of the gaps with the
black and white print. (As a bonus, the tape included an introduction by Gene
Roddenberry). In 1988, as a filler episode for TNG due to a writer's strike,
Paramount aired "The Cage", with the black and white portions colorized, as
part of a two-hour program "From One Generation To The Next", which aired
between October 3 and October 9. (Segments also included a sneak peek at Star
Trek V, the introduction of Diana Muldaur as Dr. Pulaski, and scenes from the
upcoming second season). The full-color "Cage" was released on home video to
replace the hybrid B&W/Color copy, but without the Roddenberry introductions.
The first season aired on NBC on Thursday nights at 8:30 PM, under Desilu

season by NBC.
The third season aired on NBC on Friday Nights at 10:00. However, Paramount
Pictures - A Gulf+Western Company bought out Desilu Studios, and thus, the
third season was produced by Paramount.

The Best Of Trek
To commemorate the 25th anniversary of the original Star Trek, Paramount had
viewers call in and vote on their favorite episodes of Star Trek (original
series). These episodes were aired over the weekend of September 28-29, 1991.
The top ten episodes (with season in parenthesis) selected are:
10. Balance of Terror (1)
9. A Piece Of The Action (2)
8. The Menagerie-Part One (1)
7. The Menagerie-Part Two (1)
6. Space Seed (1)
5. Amok Time (2)
4. The Doomsday Machine (2)
3. Mirror, Mirror (2)
2. The City On The Edge Of Forever (1)
1. The Trouble With Tribbles (2)
Star Trek (TOS) is distributed to local stations by Paramount. It has been
edited down in order to fit in more commercials, and is aired according to
production code order, not according to original air dates.
Both the original series and the animated series are shown on Channel 7, which
has perpetual rights to the series.
The BBC is currently showing the original series Wednesdays at 6 PM, but is
often pre-empted for sport coverage. "Miri" was shown only once, and it's
airing caused a lot of mail from angry parents that the BBC decided to preview
episodes before airing them. "Whom Gods Destroy", "The Empath", and "Plato's
Stepchildren" were *never* shown in the UK, as they were deemed unsuitable for
The series is titled "Raumschiff Enterprise", which, translated, means
"Starship Enterprise". It started airing in 1972 (?) on the German Public
Network ZDF, and, after not being aired for several years, the series began
it's current run on July 1, 1993. Part of the name change is because it would
give the German viewer the idea of a western series in space, while the
litterial translation, "Zug zu den Sternen", would have suggested a
documentary. The episode, "Patterns Of Force" was not aired in Germany due to
its Nazi theme, although SAT1 may air this episode.
Incidentally, all references to the "Warp Drive" was changed to a "SOL drive"
in ZDF version. However, the rights is now owned by SAT. 1 (a private
network), and Warp drives are now referred to as Warp Drives.
The opening into is:
Der Weltraum, unendliche Weiten.
Wir schreiben das Jahr 2200.
Dies sind die Abenteuer des Raumschiffs Enterprise,
das, mit seiner vier hundert Mann starken Besatzung
fuenf Jahrelang unterwegs ist, um neue Welten zu erforschen,
neues Leben, und neue Zivilizationen.
Viele Lichtjahre von der Erde entfernt dringt die Enterprise
in Galaxien vor, die nie ein Mensch zuvor gesehen hat.
... which, translated, is:
Space, unending expanse.
We write the year 2200. [i.e., this is the year 2200 AD]
These are the adventures of the spaceship Enterprise,
which, with its four-hundred-man crew
is five years long underway, in order to explore new worlds,
new life, and new civilizations.
Many light years distant from the earth, the Enterprise
forges ahead into galaxies which no man has seen before.

All 79 episodes+pilot are available from Paramount. They are packaged 2 to a
disc, not in numerical order. If you want specific titles, catalog numbers,
etc. "The Laser Video File" offers a complete listing, or they are available
in electronic form from the Barr LD data base. The complete set of the
animated series episodes is also available in a boxed LD set. Only the recent
all-color release of The Cage has digital sound. Some of my discs were made by
PVI in the US; some by PVC in Japan. The PVC ones are mostly in the second and
third seasons, and tend to have fewer defects. Many don't even have CX,
although some (mostly the later/PVC ones) do. The original TV trailers are
enclosed. At least one of the trailers contains slightly different composition
from the actual episode. On the positive side, the colors are significantly
more saturated than the broadcasts.

Eve McHuron, but no formal romance is established.

Exoites. Her relationship was Kirk was purely artificial and for ulterior
reasons by Roger Korby. She was later destroyed.
8. Miri - Miri becomes infatuated with Kirk, who remained on "Earth." It was
Spock and McCoy who had to open his eyes to the fact that she was "becoming a
young woman," and even then, Kirk showed more romantic interest in Rand than
he ever did in Miri.
9. Dagger Of The Mind - Kirk had a previous encounter with Dr. Helen Noel at a
science lab Christmas party, and was reminded of it whem they visited the
Tantalus colony with her as Kirk's unexpected assistant. Kirk's feelings of
attraction to her were artificially swelled by Dr. Adams' Neural Neutralizer.
13. Conscience Of The King - Kirk forges, somewhat blantantly, a relationsip
with Lenore Karidian, the daughter of Anton Karidian (also known as Governor
Kodos of Tarsus IV), in order to find out more about Karidian. However, later,

33. Mirror, Mirror - Kirk becomes romantically involved with Marlena Moreau on
the mirror Enterprise.

Kirk and Dr. Janet Wallace, a past romance was very definitely referred to.
Kirk was simply dedicated to his ship, and Dr. Wallace was dedicated to her
48. A Private Little War - Nona was an artificial relationship brought about
by the drugs and charms of the mystic wie of Kirk's friend Tyree on the planet
Neural. When Nona is killed while betraying her tribe, Kirk does not shed a
45. The Gamesters of Triskelion - Kirk gets involved with Shahna, a fellow
"thrall", while in captivity on the planet Triskelion. And, as an example of
Kirk being his stereotypical worst, he succeeds in convincing Shahna that
personal freedom, idealism, and kissing is the way to love before leaving her
(voluntarily) behind on Triskelion.

"weaknesses" of the Kelvans now that they have assumed human form. Kelinda

moments "as a man", has Kirk doing a one-nighter with Drusilla, Claudius's
58. The Paradise Syndrone - Kirk, when he lost his memories, has a romance

to settle down and be a family man in the Native American style. Of course,
once Kirk regains his memories, this side of Kirk goes away. Miramanee was
66. Wink Of An Eye - This was a rather amusing, and probably a little
ridiculous, romance between Kirk and Deela, a member of the accelerated
Scalosian society. Deela, however, stays behind on Scalos.
68. Elaan of Troyius - Kirk was infatuated with Elaan of Elas, mainly due to
the intoxicating effects of the chemical composition of Elann's tears. While
Elann married the ruler of Troyius, Kirk gets over the intoxication by
remembering that his first love is the Enterprise.
71. The Mark Of Gideon - Kirk is romancing Odona instead of interrogating her
as to why the entire Enterprise crew has disappeared. Odona's purpose was to
contact the potentially fatal disease Vegan Choriomengitis in order to reduce
some of her planet's overpopulation.
74. Requiem For Methuselah - While visiting Holberg 917-G and investigating
Flint, he has a romance with Rayna Kapec. Kirk soon discovers that Rayna was
an android built to be the "perfect woman" by Flint, and when both Flint and
Kirk fight over Rayna, she short-circuits, being unable to deal with the
intensity of her emotions for both men. Kirk, later, is allowed to forget the
pain associated with the incident with Spock's mindmelding help.
79. Turnabout Intruder - Dr. Janice Lester was another old relationship of
Kirk's that was doomed to end because of Lester's domineering resentment of
Kirk's superior capabilities as a starship Captain. Dr. Lester uses a device
on Camus II to switch bodies with an unwilling Kirk. She later goes insane.
Star Trek II - Dr. Carol Marcus was an old, serious romance of Kirks. He finds

love for his ship and her love for her work would never allow them to be happy
together. She continued on her scientific career.

romance with Dr. Gillian Taylor, a cetacean biologist. However, once back in

"What am I, a doctor or a Moon shuttle conductor?" - "The Corbomite Maneuver"
"I'm a scientist, not a military man." - Mr. Jaeger, "The Squire of Gothos"

"Well, are you a doctor or aren't you?" - Kirk, "Amok Time"
"I'm not a magician, I'm just an old country doctor." - "The Deadly Years"
These lines may have originated with Heinlein's 1952 novel "The Rolling
Stones." In that book, Dr. Edith Stone says, "How can I be sure? I'm a doctor,
not a fortune-teller."
Also, there was a 1933 film called "The Kennel Club Murder Case" starring
William Powell as Philo Vance, who was a popular book/movie detective back
then. In this film, there was a Doctor Finnegan, who made the comments "I'm a
doctor, not a magician!", and "I'm a doctor, not a detective!"

NCC-1701-7 - "Galileo" (destroyed over Taurus II in "The Galileo Seven")
NCC-1701-7 - "Galileo II" ("This Way To Eden")

Ironically, during the first season, for the episode "The Enemy Within", the
production crew did not have the budget to construct a shuttlecraft.

his knowledge, but he could not given it his knowledge, his wisdom, his soul,
26. "Errand of Mercy" - Spocks says, "Even the gods did not spring into being
28. "The City On The Edge of Forever" - While the closing credits list a
"Sister Edith Keeler", and while she does work at the "21st Street Mission",
Edith Keeler probably isn't a nun. Many who work in such missions are referred
to as "brothers" and "sisters". (For a cinematic example, see "Guys and
31. "Who Mourns For Adonais" - Apollo journeyed to Earth 5000 years ago from
Pollux 4, and was worshipped along with the other gods by the populace. Chekov

Did you know...
...Nichelle Nichols was planning to leave Star Trek at the end of the first
season, but was persuaded to stay by Martin Luther King, Jr.?
...The Enterprise model is 11 feet in length, and weighs 200 pounds. The
model is composed of plastic, wood, and rolled steel. The cost of materials,
in 1964 dollars, was $600. The original designer of the ship is Walter "Matt"
Jeffries, who based the ship's registry number, NCC-1701, on his 1935 Waco
airplane (and whom the term "Jeffries Tubes" was invented for). After the
series, the model was donated to the Smithsonian in 1974, and was restored due
to the appearance of cracking paint, stress cracks, and failures in the
lighting system. A "streaking effect" has been added to make a "weathered"
look, but the paint has changed the model color from gray to green. The
restoration process took six weeks.
...That "Assignment: Earth" was originally a pilot for another series that
Gene Roddenberry proposed but never got off the ground?
...That Majel Barrett's real name is Majel Leigh Hudec. The name change was in
order to hire her as Christine Chapel.
...That "Plato's Stepchildren" was the first episode in television history to
feature an interracial kiss?
...In "Assignment: Earth", Spock, upon reviewing 1968 Earth history, says that
"There will be an important assassination today." A few days after this
episode originally aired, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was shot and killed.
...How the transporter effect was filmed:
* Sprinkle glitter against a black background and shine a light through it.
* Film the scene, first with the actor, then without (or vice versa)
* Matte the glitter over the actor, and double-expose the film
...the title of "Bread and Cirsuses" comes from Juvenal, a Roman satirist of
the first century AD, who wrote, "The people that once bestowed commands,
consulships, legions, and all else, now concerns itself no more, and longs
eagerly for just two things -- bread and circuses!" [ref The Best of Trek
#13, p. 134]
1. "The Man Trap" - Sulu says a line written by Gene Roddenberry, "May the
Great Bird of the Galaxy roost on our planet". After this reference was
filmed, Gene Roddenberry got the nickname of the Great Bird.
44. "The Trouble With Tribbles" - The writer, David Gerrold, came up with the
idea independent of Heinlein. When Desilu or NBC discovered the crossover,
Gene and David called up Heinlein, who simply laughed it off, then said to go
ahead and use it.
53. "The Ultimate Computer" - The term "human engrams" may possibly come from
a L. Ron Hubbard novel.
William Shatner was trained as Shakespearean actors. The problem with
Shatner's acting is that he apparently has never made the transition in style
from stage acting to television acting. His overacting and wild motions work
fine on stage, just not as well on a TV set where the camera picks up every
move much better. Patrick Stewart had the same problem during the first
season, as I remember. William Shatner holds Sir Laurence Olivier as his
favorite performer because of the late actor's technical skill and ability to
project emotion. Olivier continues to be revered as the greatest modern
Anyways, there have been many references to Shakespeare on the original
series, either though episode titles or through quotations by the characters.
The key is that the title and reference are in quotations. The 2.1.39 means
Act 2, Scene 1, Line 39.
9. "Dagger of the Mind" - This line is referenced in "Macbeth 2.1.39", and can
be best sumarized in "Macbeth 2.1.34-50".
13. "The Conscience of the King" - This line is referenced in "Hamlet
2.2.606", and can be best sumarized in "Hamlet 2.2.589-606". This episode is
based largely on _Hamlet_. The basic plot is similar, and there are many plot
devices that are duplicated in the episode from the play, such as the troupe
of actors. Additionally, many of Shakespeare's characters find analogs in Star
Trek. Here is a list of crossovers: Hamlet -> Kirk, Claudius -> Karidian
(Kodos), Ophelia -> Lenore, and Ghost of Hamlet's Father -> Tom Leighton
This episode also contains several themes lifted from Macbeth, as one would
expect since the episode opens with a scene from an "Arcturian Macbeth." The
analogs seem to be: Macbeth -> Karidian, Lady Macbeth -> Lenore, and Macduff
Toward the end of the episode, the Karidian Company of Actors performs
Hamlet. Karidian, playing Hamlet's father, speaks the lines from "Hamlet
1.5.10-24", but, unforunately, omits several lines.
Later, Lenore quotes the Soothsayer in "Julius Caesar 1.2.18&23":
"Caesar, beware the Ides of March", and then paraphrases Fortinbras from
51. "By Any Other Name" - Kirk says as he holds out a rose-like flower and
says, "As the Earth poet Shakespeare wrote, `That which we call a rose by any
other name would smell as sweet.'" This line comes from "Romeo and Juliet
68. "Elaan of Troyius" - The plot for this episode was taken from _The Taming
of the Shrew_. As with "The Conscience of the King," some of Shakespeare's
characters find analogs within the episode: Petruchio -> Kirk, and Katherine
69. "Whom Gods Destroy" - Martha quotes Shakespeare's eighteenth sonnet, which
Garth replies, "You wrote that?". This was probably an allusion to the
Elizabethan practice of rewriting pre-existing poems and stories, using huge
amounts of the same text. (It was considered bad writing not to.)
78. "All Our Yesterdays" - This title comes from "Macbeth 5.5.22", with
surrounding text from "Macbeth 5.5.17-28".
[It is currently impossible for me to verify these SNAFUs, since my local
station in the area hasn't shown TOS for over 4 years]
The number by each episode is airing order of each episode.
2. "Charlie X" - Kirk enters a turbolift with the boy Charlie, en route to the
bridge, wearing his usual uniform shirt with the badge on the left breast.
When they emerge from the lift, Kirk is wearing his yellow-green wrap-around
shirt with the badge down near the waist. Yet for the rest of the show (after
the bridge scene and some shirtless scenes in the Enterprise gymnasium) he
retains his usual shirt. (UV) Also, after Kirk talks with the chef, he is seen
in a closeup, but the image is reversed (look at the hair part). (UV) Then,
Charlie is on McCoy's examination table, actively peddling. We switch to a
camera view of the indicator panel, where a reflection of Charlie is shown,
with Charlie motionless. The camera then cuts back to Charlie, who is fully
active. Then, back to the panel, where shows Charlie's reflection motionless,
and then back to Charlie. (UV)
4. "The Naked Time" - After Nurse Chapel infects spock with "the disease",
Spock goes into the conference room to get control of his emotions. The
doorplate on this room is on the LEFT side of the door. After Kirk enters, a
bit of dramatics, Spock leaves, then Kirk leaves, we see that the doorplate
has moved to the RIGHT side of the door. (UV)
5. "The Enemy Within" - When he's on the planet, Kirk's gold shirt has the
usual emblem on. When he beams back aboard, the emblem is missing. He swoons,
and Scotty helps him out of the transporter room. After the break, we see
Scotty and Kirk in the corridor, and the emblem is back. (The order of these
may be reversed, but the emblem definitely "winks" in and out.) (UV) Strange
clothing changes. (UV) Bad-Kirk's scratch on his face switches sides. (UV)
When Bad-Kirk demands brandy from McCoy, the closeup show shows him with the
Good-Kirk uniform (UV) When Good-Kirk is holding bad Kirk on the transpoter
pad, his hands are touching. Then he talks to Spock and his hands are apart.
After that, a longshot shows his hands touching again. (UV) When Bad-Kirk
demands brandy from McCoy, the closeup show shows him with the Good-Kirk
6. "Mudd's Women" - When the women are first beamed up to the Enterprise, it
flashes back and forth between the women and Scott, Spock, and McCoy. If you
watch it carefully, you will see that they spliced in a scene of McCoy
standing in sick bay smiling, and he is wearing a different uniform and has
the medical scanner behind him.
7. "What Are Little Girls Made Of" - Strange clothing changes. (UV)
11. "The Menagerie" - The ONLY door handle seen in a Federation setting (ship
or starbase, etc.) was on the door to Christopher Pike's quarters, which was
kind of ironic, since he's about the only person who COULDN'T use a door
handle! (V) Also, during the trial, every senior officer, including McCoy, is
wearing dress uniforms, except for Scott, who is wearing his regular uniform.
15. "Shore Leave" - As you watch the Kirk/Finnegan fight, ask yourself when
Kirk's tunic gets ripped. You'll notice that just before we fade to a
commercial, the camera is on Kirk, who is down and out, and his tunic is
perfectly whole. Camera cuts to Finnegan, who is standing over Kirk, gloating.
The camera cuts back to Kirk, whose tunic is ripped to shreds, and we fade to
a commercial. (UV) Maybe Kirk is Jewish, and rents his garment in anguish....
Also, when Spock is beaming down, Sulu says, "Look, someone is beaming down
from the bridge." How could they determine that someone was beaming down from
the bridge, never mind that it wasn't possible in TOS times. (UV) The yeoman
gets her uniform torn by Don Juan, and then changes into the 'princess'
costume. When she changes back into her uniform again, it has miraculously
been repaired. (UV) Spock and Kirk are discussing the tiger that was seen and
it appears. BUT it clearly has a chain around its neck and when it gets up,
the chain is clearly seen to extend toward the ground. (UV) In the scene where
the caretaker appears for the first time, you can see the shadow of a boom
pass across the tree in the middle of the screen. (UV)
16. "The Galileo Seven" - After Boma leaves to prepare for one of the burials,
the camera stays on the shuttlecraft door as it closes. A propman's hand is
very visible on the lower part of the door, guiding it into place. (UV)
17. "The Squire Of Gothos" - Trelane sees Earth's history about 900 years
late, and talks about Alexander's Hamilton's death (July 12, 1804), and how he
had admired Napoleon (who reigned from November 9, 1799-April 11, 1814; March
20-June 18, 1815). This places the episode at around the 2700's, about a few
hundred years after when TNG is stated to occur. (UV)
18. "Arena" - When Kirk and Spock are taking cover, at the beginning, behind a
destroyed section of wall, every time Kirk leans against the wall, it moves as
if it's a styrofoam prop. (UV)
19. "Tomorrow is Yesterday" - First off, Kirk says that the "United Earth
Space Probe Agency" was the authority behind the Enterprise. Next, when Kirk
and Sulu hand their belts to the security guard, the antenna grids were
hanging open, yet the communicators didn't hail the Enterprise. A few seconds
later, when the guard asked about the communicators, the antenna grids were
closed. In addition, the Lieutenant Colonel who questioned Kirk was violating
regulations by wearing his Wheel Hat indoors. The Berets on the guards, on the
other hand, may have been ok. It seems to me that they are allowed indoors.
Then, when they were just getting ready to beam Christopher back to his jet,
he trotted down to the transporter console and hit the communicator switch. He
sure learns fast, huh?
The worst problem in this episode, of course, is toward the end. The entire
scenario of returning Christopher to his aircraft by beaming him into his own
body is not acceptable. It certainly is possible that Christopher was beamed
back into the aircraft at the same instant that the earlier version of the
Enterprse beamed him out. This could explain the visual effect. However next
he indicated that the UFO had disappeared and that he was returning to base.
The tractor SHOULD have remained on from the earlier Enterprise, and the
Christopher who was returned to the plane should have gone down with the
destryed aircraft--presumably bailing out and descending on parachute in such
a way that the Enterprise sensors did not notice. Also, Christopher should
have landed on the ground with the full memory of what had happened to him on
the Enterprise, but hopefully he was ethical enough to not do anything with
his kowledge that would change the future.
One last thing: In the closing credits, Captain Christopher is listed as a
On the other hand, this episode, first broadcast in the U.S. on January 26,
1967, correctly indicated that Apollo 11 would be launched on a Wednesday
(July 16, 1969, 9:32 A.M., EDT.) Also, the Starfleet uniform given to Captain
Christopher had Lieutenant's braid on the sleeve. Oddly enough, this was
correct. An Air Force Captain is equivalent to a Navy Lieutenant, and
Starfleet follows Navy rank.
20. "Court Martial" - Kirk says "Gentlemen, this computer has an auditory
sensor. It can, in effect, hear sounds. By installing a booster we can
increase that capability on the order of one to the fourth power." Hmmmm,
either the writers or William Shatner seemed to think that it sound more
impressive than just plain old "one". And, I guess we have to assume that both
the voices and the other ship noises were masked out just like those
heartbeats. (UV) Also, at the end when Kirk is fighting Finney, Kirk's shirt
is ripped at his right shoulder but his stunt double's shirt is obviously
undamaged in that area. (UV)
21. "Return of the Archons" - When the landing party is hemmed in by Landru's
legions at both ends of an alley, Kirk orders them to fire (on stun). McCoy's
phaser appears not to fire at all. I suppose animation forgot to do the
effect. (UV) When Kirk's landing party starts running from the festival, a
quick shot shows a rock BOUNCING off the head of one of the landing party
members and up into the air. Now THAT'S a thick head! (UV) When the landing
party arrive at the hotel, it is daylight. Kirk talks a few minutes and then
the landing party is escorted to their room. The owner opens a window and it
is now pitch black outside. This planet might have a short day/night cycle,
but their clock system seemed to be pretty close to that of the Earth's. (UV)
22. "Space Seed" - As Kirk is bashing in Khan's glass coffin, his phaser falls
off his belt. McCoy keeps looking down at it, like he's wondering when they're
going to yell 'cut' so they can re-shoot the scene. They never did re-shoot
because they didn't want to invest in more glass. (V) During the hearing at
the end, when Kirk rings the ship's bell, watch McCoy closely. He has a
strained, silly grin on his face, as if DeForest Kelley is desperately trying
to keep from bursting out laughing. As Kirk finishes the last ring, McCoy
sighs, as if in relief, and assumes a more appropriate expression. (UV)
28. "The City On The Edge Of Forever" - Clark Gable's first film was made in
1930, at which time he was hardly a major star, and it would hardly have
seemed strange that Kirk and McCoy might not have heard of him. "Good Night,
Sweetheart" wasn't written until 1931. Also, Kirk mentions Orion's belt and
points to it in the sky. Orion should not be visible in the night sky at that
time of year (according to a calendar shown on a wall). Also, in the panning
shot of the city where a bunch of brick buildings are shown, there is a
radiation trident on a sign on a wall, which normally signifies a fallout
shelter. Fallout shelters shouldn't exist for *years*.
30. "Amok Time" - At the marriage ceremony, as Spock is going up to hit the
gong, we get two shots of this happening. In the first shot, from the view of
T'Pau, Spock starts moving toward the gong and then on the right we see
T'Pring start moving to issue the Kah-if-farr. Then, there is a cut looking at
the face of T'Pring, who in this scene is standing still. After a second,
T'Pring starts to move forward to issue the challenge. Nothing too bad but I
have to look at something. Yeah, that scene has several well-known continuity
errors. The most graphic one is a long shot of the set during Kirk's talk with
T'Pau, where we see Nimoy leaning against a wall when, continuity-wise, Spock
is supposedly kneeling, deep in "plak tow." It's also easy to see stage lights
in a couple of scenes. (UV) Plus, when Spock goes to bang that gong, it rings
before it's hit. (UV) Also, T'Pau speaks to everyone else in
Elizabethan/Shakespearean/King James English -- to a point of using "thee" and
"thy". However, she never uses "thou", but, incorrectly uses thee. Spock even
uses this incorrectly in one instance.
33. "Mirror, Mirror" - In the beginning of the episode, Kirks calls up the
Enterprise, requests beam up, and puts the communicator back on his belt.
During the partial materialization on the transporter room, the communicator
is in Kirk's hand with the antenna grid fully open. Then, when the landing
party materializes fully in the mirror universe, the communicator is back on
Kirk's belt. (UV)
34. "The Apple" - Near the end of the show, when the Big-E fails to break free
of the tractor beam, Scotty falls against the captain's chair and one of the
floorboards comes up off the floor. (UV)
35. "The Doomsday Machine" - There is at least one side shot of the device
where the stars can be seen through the far side of the maw. (UV) Also, Scotty
loses his brogue for one line. (UV) Also, while the Constellation is being
flown into the doomsday machine, the model looks as if it was bumped. (UV)
42. "Obsession" - When Captain Kirk fights an ensign for the right to remain
on the planet, Kirk tosses the ensign against a very solid rock. However, when
that ensign is tossed against that same rock for a second time, that rock is
not so solid and rolls slightly in the manner of a piece of plastic painted to
look like a rock. (UV)
46. "A Piece of the Action" - When Kirk, Spock, and McCoy first beam down to
the planet, a long shot shows the three of them approaching a bench. Kirk puts
him hand on the bench and McCoy is behind him. A closer shot follows that
shows McCoy standing behind the bench and then Kirk walks into the shot,
behind McCoy, and then arrives at the bench. (UV)
48. "A Private Little War" - In the closing credits, the Mugato is listed in
the closing credits as Gumato. (Let's just call the whole things off...)
50. "Patterns of Force" - After Kirk and Spock enter the Zeon hideaway, Spock
repairs a communicator which was disassembled by the Ekosians. As he tries to
test it, he gives the wrist flip, but the antenna grid doesn't open. Spock
glances down and opens it by hand. (UV)
51. "By Any Other Name" - In one scene Spock was talking with out moving his
lips. It occurs when Spock and the Kelvin Rojan are playing chess and they
are discussing Rojan's response to Kirk kissing the Kelvin woman Kelinda.
Initially we see the two characters playing chess and talking, but the view
then switches to close ups of each person's face as they talk. When Spock says
the line "Captain Kirk seems find her quite attractive" he looks as if he is
thinking about something, but does not say anything. Must be telepathy. :-)
52. "The Omega Glory" - Kirk, Spock, and McCoy are seated and bound,
speculating that the Yangs are Yankees and Cohms are Communists. When the
camera is on the three of them, Kirk's hair is parted one way, yet, when there
is a close-up shot of Kirk, his hair is parted another way. (UV)
53. "The Ultimate Computer" - Spock and Scotty are in the Jefferies tube and
Kirk and the scientist are below looking at what they are doing. Kirk is
restraining the scientist. From the top view, Kirk is holding him by his
arm. The shot from the floor shows Kirk's arm around his head. (UV)
55. "Assignment: Earth" - Kirk (in the briefing room) has Scotty on the
tabletop viewscreen. Scotty (in Engineering) gives Kirk a report. Kirk ends
the transmission with Kirk out and reaches to turn off the viewscreen but the
viewscreen turns off before Kirk switches it off. AI at its finest, eh? (UV)
58. "The Paradise Syndrome" - The first time Kirk enters the temple he falls
in through a (supposed) unseend trapdoor. However at the end when he manages
to re-open the temple the entrance is clearly shown as a large raised sliding
door, implying Kirk could not possibly have fallen in the first time. (UV)
Also when Spock orders a full power phasor strike on the asteroid Scotty can
be heard to say "Oh me bearings". (UV)
59. "And the Children Shall Lead" - At the end of the episode Kirk gives the
order 'Set course for Starbase 4', yet he mentions a little earlier that the
security detail was still on the planet Triacus. (UV)
60. "Is There In Truth No Beauty?" - At the beginning of the episode, it is
established that humans, even with the red visor, would go mad if they saw the
ambassador being transported aboard. However, at the end of the episode, Kirk
watches the ambassador being beamed out without the visor. Kirk should have
gone mad at this point. [This could explain a lot about what happened during
the third season...]
62. "Day Of The Dove" - There is a prop that is grey, and looks like a grey
hydrant coming out of the wall approximately 18 inches from the floor. During
the big sword fight, we see them fighting by this "hydrant", cut to another
scene, then cut back to see this "hydrant" knocked over.
64. "The Tholian Web" - When Chekov goes mad and screams, his mouth doesn't
73. "The Lights Of Zetar" - Kirk has Romaine put into the pressure chamber in
sick bay, and has the pressure increased by one atmosphere per second. At that
rate, she would have been crushed like a bug in a minute. (UV)
75. "The Way to Eden" - Although not an actual snafu, Adam's hand twitches
after he was "dead". However, many muscular spasms do occur after death. (UV)
Also, there is a short bit where the film is backwards, and Kirk's insignia
appears on the wrong side of the shirt. (UV)
76. "The Cloud Minders" - When Kirk and Spock are first captured by the
miners, Kirk says something like, "What's the meaning of this?", but his mouth
doesn't move. (UV)
78. "All Our Yesterdays" - Spock claims that his planet is "millions of light
years from here". This is unusual, since the galaxy is only 100,000 light
years across. (UV) There's also the comment from the policeman who says he
heard Kirk speaking with spirits, and heard him call one of them "Bones". The
only time that Kirk used the name "Bones", the policemen were away getting
79. "Turnabout Intruder" - In this episode, "the death penalty has been
forbidden. There's only one exception: General Order 4." However, in "The
Menagerie", "General Order 7" is the directive not to travel to Talos IV, and
states, "The only death penalty left on the books."
- Hmmmm.... In "Balance of Terror", Spock says that something called "cast
rodinium" is the hardest substance known to Federation science, and yet, was
pulverized by the Romulan weapon. Yet, in "The Doomsday Machine", Spock says
that there is no known way of blasting through solid neutronium. In "Arena",
diamonds are "the hardest known substance", but in "Obsession", a rock
substance is "twenty times as hard as diamonds. (V)
Where's Scotty's Finger?
James Doohan is missing the middle finger of his right hand. During World
War II, he served in the Royal Canadian Artillery (not the air force, although
he flew - like a maniac - often) for six years and two months and lead the
fifth Landing Craft Assault. He was on the ground when his middle finger
caught three bullets; the head wound and other wounds did no damage. He then
became a flight instructor before leaving the military in October of 1945.
If you look at his hand, you'll see a faint red streak, indicating the
entire metacarpal bone was surgically removed. Usually, if Scotty's hands were
called for in a script to operate the transporter, we cut to a shot of someone
else's hands. Usually, we'll see Scotty's hands behind some object or side on.
However, here are some scenes where the missing finger is visible:
34. "The Apple" - Scotty's clenched fist. (UV)
44. "The Trouble With Tribbles" - After Kirk notices what he got for his
chicken sandwich and coffee, Scotty walks in carrying a whole bundle of
tribbles. The missing finger is clearly noticeable. (V)
"Star Trek IV" - When McCoy hands Scotty the mouse in Dr. Nichols' office,
Scotty lack of digitude is noticeable for a second. (UV)
"Star Trek V" - When Uhura tosses Scotty the bag of food, the missing finger
TNG "Relics" - Scotty's missing finger can be noticed a few times, notably in
Ten-Forward and on the original Enterprise in the Holodeck.

He'll find in star-clustered reaches
Strange love a star woman teaches
His journey end never
His star trek
Will go on forever.
But tell him
While he wanders his starry sea
Remember, remember me.
