Where No Man Has Gone Before - S1-E3

Corrected entry: When Kirk fired the phaser rifle the second time, we continue hearing the sound even though the beam had stopped.

Correction: Of course. Light travels faster than sound. We see the light from the phaser disappear well before we'd hear the sound stop, just as we see lightning before we hear thunder.

Where No Man Has Gone Before - S1-E3

Corrected entry: When the Enterprise is heading outside the galaxy, from the scene showing the ship at the edge of the galaxy, it looks like the ship could easily go over or under the pink area and solve the whole problem. Of course, it would have been a pretty short show.

Richard Welty

Correction: The pink boundary at the edge of the galaxy is only shown from the same plane of space the Enterprise is at. If the Enterprise tried to go up or down the pink boundary would still be there.

Where No Man Has Gone Before - S1-E3

Corrected entry: When the Enterprise reaches the lithium processing plant on Delta Vega, a deserted planet that even the ore ships only visit every twenty years, why do they have lots of control panels, many rooms, and a BRIG at the processing plant? All of which work?

Correction: http://memory-alpha.org/en/wiki/Delta_Vega. There is no listing for when the site was built. At the time it was built, it could have been manned and then left to automatic control.

Where No Man Has Gone Before - S1-E3

Corrected entry: At the beginning, Kirk is talking about the Valiant having only impulse power so it didn't have enough power to leave the galaxy. Given the size of the galaxy and Kirk later saying that since the Enterprise was now on impulse power "that planets that were only hours away are now months away", it would take the Valiant about 200 years to get to the edge of the galaxy, thus arriving about the same time as the Enterprise. Also, the Valiant would have had to be launched around 1966.

Richard Welty

Correction: At some point the Valiant encountered a magnetic storm and was swept towards the edge of Galactic barrier because its impulse engines were not strong enough. It was swept ½ lightyear out of the galaxy, thrown clear, and then turned and headed back into the galaxy. http://memory-alpha.org/en/wiki/SS_Valiant

Mistakes

Trelane says he studied Earth images that travelled to him at light speed, and earlier they establish Gothos is 900 years from Earth. But Trelane references Napoleon and Hamilton, who weren't around until 1800 or so. That would put this episode in 2700, but the original Trek episodes are set in the 2200's.

Trivia

Gene Roddenberry created the transporter as an easier (and cheaper) way of getting Enterprise crew members onto a planet's surface, rather than landing the ship on the planet.
