3 corrected entries in A Piece of the Action

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.

Jean G

Correction: Bela didn't "forget" the cue ball. He simply tired of playing around during introductions, and used the shooting of the regular balls as a signal that he was turning his attention to the matter at hand, i.e., Kirk and company, and what he could get out of them.

Movie Nut

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.

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.

Guy

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.

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.
