According to his character biography in the series Writer's Guide, McCoy was divorced and had a college aged daughter named Joanna. None of this was mentioned in any episode, though there were a couple of unsuccessful attempts to feature an appearance by Joanna. The character of Irina (Mary Linda Rapelye) in Star Trek: The Way to Eden (1969) was originally to have been Joanna. Joanna would be mentioned in the animated series, and also depicted or referred to in non-canonical Star Trek novels and comics. Finally, in Star Trek (2009), McCoy's bitter divorce is prominently mentioned during his fist conversation with Jim Kirk (though there was no mention of a daughter). See more »
The Star Trek Universe is inconsistent in its use of measurement standards. In Star Trek: Obsession, Ensign Garrovick describes a gaseous creature as being "several cubic meters" in size, but his distance as "about twenty feet away". These discrepancies continue through all the Star Trek series and movies. See more »

On some episodes, the closing credits show a still that is actually from the Star Trek blooper reel. It is a close-up of the actor who played the android body in "Return to Tomorrow, removing his latex make up. In the reel, He is shown taking it off, while an off-screen voice says "You wanted show business, you got it!" See more »
One must remember that Star Trek was made as a for profit network TV. The amount of money and total lack of any computer aided special effects. Was the norm, it a call for innovation, creativity, thinking outside the box, in fact they did not even have a box. So remember 10 years before Star Wars, Ten years before the the first Apple Computer, during the Civil Rights movement, during the peak of the Viet Nam War, Before man had set foot on the surface of the moon, a man name Roddenberry had a vision to " Go where no man went before". Exploring social issues, with appearances by some of the days leading actors, and actresses. Star Trek in a way is a time warp of the mid 1960's. The styles and culture are mixed in series. Indian mysticism, invaded the series just like the white album. I believe the most diverse cast and characters in the history of TV. The one high tech aspect of the show is and was it was filmed in color when few people owned color TV's. Live long and prosper.
