The Squire of Gothos - S1-E17

Corrected entry: 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.

Correction: You assume that Trelane lived only on that planet. Rather, Trelane was a powerful energy-entity that did not actually live on the planet, he was just playing with it. Trelane's kind could go anywhere in the galaxy they wanted, at will. In fact, Trelane's parents merely allowed him to play with a whole planet to keep him occupied. As an energy-entity, Trelane had obviously observed Earth from much closer range, at some point, which is when he became fascinated with 18th Century Earth civilization and warfare. But, when the Enterprise encounters him, he's "playing" elsewhere in the galaxy, now 900 light years from Earth.

Spock: Live long and prosper.



When Kirk and Sulu enter the records room, they pick the lock. Later when they beam the officer back down, he enters the room without unlocking the door. The room should be locked since they beamed him down in the "past" erasing their having been on Earth and in the records room.



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.
