While beaming back aboard the Enterprise, a transporter malfunction results in two vastly different Captain Kirks being beamed aboard. His personality has in effect been split into two. One Captain Kirk is weak and indecisive, fearful of making any kind of decision; the other is a mean-spirited and violent man who likes to swill brandy and force himself on female crew members. Meanwhile, as Scotty struggles to repair the transporter, the landing party is stuck on the planet below with temperatures falling rapidly.

The showering phaser effect used when Sulu heats the rock is never used again. Just before he sprays the rocks, Sulu also appears to be fitting his hand phaser into its pistol mount - again, a maneuver that is never repeated. See more
There are 5 Captain's Log entries during this episode. Kirk makes the first 4 entries on the following Star Dates: 1672.1, 1672.9, a supplemental entry at 1673.1, and 1673.5. The last Log entry is then made by Spock at 1673.1 again, showing that his log entry should have occurred at approximately the same time as the supplemental entry, rather than after Kirk's last entry.
