Day of the Dove - S3-E7

Corrected entry: Kirk's line, "We're a doomed ship, traveling forever between galaxies" is the only time original "Trek" committed the scientific blunder of confusing galaxies and solar systems. The Enterprise wasn't capable of intergalactic travel (that's leaving one galaxy and reaching another). Yes, it strayed briefly out of our galaxy several times. But it did not - and could not - cross to another one. That would take a warp 100-plus drive and thousands of years.

00:37:25

Correction: In the course of a normal human lifespan, Enterprise wouldn't be able to travel to another galaxy. Given enough time however, it certainly could reach other galaxies. The plot of this episode is that they were (as you stated), doomed to travel forever (as opposed to the rest of their lives). Given all eternity, they would be traveling between galaxies.

Mistakes

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.

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.
