Star Trek

Obsession - S2-E13

Corrected entry: Kirk said that the creatures planet was 1000 light years away, later on in the episode he states that they are only 17 days away from said planet. At the Enterprise cruise speed of warp 5 it would take them about 46 years to get there, even if they could maintain their theoretical maximum speed of warp 9.6 it would take them about 5 years. To get there in 17 days they would have to achieve an impossible warp factor of 27.8.


Correction: Since the show never establishes what the warp factors mean in terms of velocity, the entire point is kind of moot.

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.
