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.

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.
