Trivia

This is the only episode in which the U.S.S. Enterprise is seen orbiting a planet from right to left. The shot was deliberately reversed in post-production because the shape of the Eastern United States and the Caribbean sea could clearly be seen on the globe used as a model for the planet.

Goofs

When Kirk and Finnegan are fighting/wrestling around, there are multiple instances where you can see the artificial light being directed by either a light or a sun screen. In the beginning of this fight, Finnegan has multiple shadows. See more »

Quotes

Captain James T. Kirk: You follow the rabbit. I'll backtrack the girl. I'll meet you around the other side of the hill.
Dr. McCoy: Good. I got a personal grudge against that rabbit, Jim.

A Well Acted Sci Fi Drama Would Be Enough Wonderland For Me
26 April 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Once again, the comedic takes over. I know that this episode has elements of seriousness to it. But as soon as Leonard McCoy sees the rabbit from Alice in Wonderland, we know things are going to get weird. Anyway, the whole crew is able to engage in fantasies. There is no holodeck to keep them occupied so this is the next best thing. People get to face fears and antagonists and what appear to be life and death situations. Kirk finds Finnegan and then the love of his life. Somehow this planet has special powers for R & R but not what they thought. It is a lightweight piece but at this point I felt that maybe they were selling out to the network.
