A Piece of the Action - S2-E17

Corrected entry: Not only do the billiard balls on the pool table keep changing positions between shots, but Bela seems to forget what the cue ball is for, and starts hitting the colored balls directly into the pockets instead.

A Piece of the Action - S2-E17

Corrected entry: Kirk says that three jacks would make a shrug and the Oxymx's goon would be disqualified, yet despite this his next card is a jack and Kirk tells him it's good.

00:14:50 - 00:15:20


Correction: Kirk is making the rules up as he goes along. Since the objective was to keep the game going and distract the guards, if he ignores or misses a rule, it is a deliberate choice on his part or at most a character mistake.


A Piece of the Action - S2-E17

Corrected entry: The U.S.S. Horizon wasn't violating the prime directive, the prime directive was formed in 2253.

Correction: The episode never claimed that it did. The episode revolved around the concept that damage had been done before the prime directive was in place.

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.
