2 corrected entries in The Doomsday Machine

The Doomsday Machine - S2-E6

Corrected entry: As powerful as the Enterprise is, a 229 meter vessel would not really stand a chance against a several mile long planet destroyer. Despite this, the Enterprise survives several hits with only minor damage.

Correction: Size matters not... sorry, wrong space opera but the correction still stands. There's no way to make this claim without knowing the specific effects from the attack. The size of the ships is irrelevant. Birds brought down a jet in Manhattan not too long ago.

The Doomsday Machine - S2-E6

Corrected entry: Spock says that they will be unable to close with the Machine because Enterprise's energy cells will draw its attention, but then later he says it ignores ships such as themselves beyond a certain size radius - which is it?

Correction: Spock is cautious about energy early on, but later determines size is the draw. He simply doesn't say 'Gee, looks like I was wrong.'

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.
