Operation -- Annihilate! - S1-E29

Corrected entry: When given the option of using intense light to kill the creatures, McCoy says that he could probably rig a cubicle in the bio lab to test the theory. However, that would require him to know engineering, and one of his caustic quotes is "I'm a doctor, not an engineer!", unless he requisitioned Engineering to help.

Movie Nut

Correction: Rigging a cubicle with lights wouldn't require engineering skills. He just meant he can set up some intense lights and focus them on a certain spot, not that he'll have to wire anything or build a special device.


Operation -- Annihilate! - S1-E29

Corrected entry: When Spock tries and fails to beam down to the the planet, Kirk claimed to have ordered Spock to stay in sickbay, yet he never ordered it: he simply requested Spock to stay in sickbay. There is a difference between a request and an order. (00:26:40)


Correction: In most branches of the military, a superior officer "asking" you to do something is easily considered an order.

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.
