This episode features the one and only time in all of the Star Trek series and films that Captain Kirk says, "Beam us up, Scotty!" It has long been thought of as one of those made up phrases connected to the franchise (in the original Star Trek (1966), Kirk and others always said something like "Scotty, three to beam up." or "Enterprise, beam us up."). But Kirk does say it in this episode. See more »

Goofs

In one scene a couple of crewman are suddenly not wearing their headbands. In the next scene, the headbands reappear. See more »

Quotes

Theela: I am Theela, the head female. Welcome, James Kirk, Dr. McCoy, Mr. Spock, welcome.
Mr. Spock: The form is humanoid, but there are many internal differences. Their bodies appear to function in an unusual psychokinetic level.
Doctor McCoy: First time I ever admired a body function.
