Trivia

Lee Meriwether is one of four actors to appear in Star Trek having previously played a Batman villain. Meriwether portrayed Catwoman in Batman: The Movie (1966). Malachi Throne played False Face during the first season of Batman before playing Commodore Mendes in Star Trek: The Original Series: The Menagerie: Part I (1966). Julie Newmar played Catwoman in the TV series, and was seen in Star Trek: The Original Series: Friday's Child (1967). The final Batman "Special Guest Villain" to go from Batman to Star Trek was Frank Gorshin (known for his portrayal of The Riddler), who appeared as Commissioner Bele in Star Trek: The Original Series: Let That Be Your Last Battlefield (1969). In addition, two actors went from a role on Star Trek to a major guest role on Batman (Joan Collins (Edith Keeler / The Siren) and Roger C. Carmel (Harry Mudd / Colonel Gumm)), and dozens of bit players appeared on both shows and/or Mission: Impossible (1966). See more »

Goofs

When control of the Enterprise's engines is regained and the ship starts to decelerate, Lt. Rahda at the helm gives reports of the decreasing speed: She says Warp 14.1, then 14. Then as the ship continues to decelerate she says Warp 15.9. See more »

Quotes

Mr. Spock: The power of this intruder to disrupt every cell in a body, combined with the almost inconceivable power required to hurl the Enterprise such a distance, speak of a very high culture and a very great danger.

Spock is really annoying in this one
1 October 2007 | by shakawtwfSee all my reviews

Spock jumps on every comment that every person says, correcting their calculations with comments like "I wish you'd be more accurate" and saying things like "We're not here to engage in gambling" when someone asks about their odds of survival (how many times has Spock himself spewed out odds of this and that in the past? His own mother had to cut him off at the knees when he did that once). I've always thought that the "folding Lee Meriwhether" effect was cool but I'm not sure the episode really makes any sense. My main problem with this episode is how annoying Spock is because he's my favorite character in this series.
