Star Trek (1966)

4 corrected entries in The City on the Edge of Forever

The City on the Edge of Forever - S1-E28

Corrected entry: In the credits, Joan Collins' character is named "Sister Edith Keeler." But her character is engaging in a romantic/sexual relationship with Kirk. He says he has "ulterior motives" towards her which she reacts to playfully and kisses him. Not appropriate behaviour for a sister, particularly in the time and place the episode is set.

Peter Weekes

Correction: Edith Keeler wasn't a nun. She was a social worker, and thus, nothing she did would be considered inappropriate. She did work at the mission soup kitchen, where they would have called all women "sisters" just like they might call the men "brothers".

Bishop73

The City on the Edge of Forever - S1-E28

Corrected entry: At the end of the episode, 7 people beam back up to the ship, which should be impossible since the transporter only had 6 pads.

Correction: EACH transporter has 6 pads. Enterprise has more than one transporter (at least 4, I believe), so they can beam up 7 people, it's just that one will end up in a different transporter room.

The City on the Edge of Forever - S1-E28

Corrected entry: Since Kirk has to be on the Enterprise to record his Captain's log (after the events of the episode), we know he and Spock are successful in repairing the timeline since Kirk is heard making his log entry just before he and Spock go back to the past.

jbrbbt

Correction: He could make the log entry into a tricorder to be uploaded to the ship's log once he made it back.

Captain Defenestrator

The City on the Edge of Forever - S1-E28

Corrected entry: If McCoy changed the future history of Earth that causes the Enterprise not to exist, then the landing party and equipment should have ceased to exist as well.

jbrbbt

Correction: It's said at the beginning that the Guardian is at the center of a time distortion. That distortion could be protecting them.

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.
