Did You Know?


Hard-core Star Trek (1966) fans are quick to point out that Markel and Bryce - not Enterprise crew - shouldn't be wearing the "arrowhead" Enterprise insignia. However, since the Star Trek movies and later TV series show all of Starfleet using the symbol, some fans postulate that perhaps its use indicates it had already been adapted as the universal Starfleet emblem. (Of course, since the animated series is not considered "canon", it's a fairly pointless argument anyway.) See more »


For one shot, Markel and Bryce's "arrowhead" insignia are on the right side of their uniforms instead of the left. See more »

Doctor McCoy: You Vulcans are the most impossible, unimaginative...
Captain James T. Kirk: Bones, that's not helping the situation.
