2 corrected entries in Whom Gods Destroy

Whom Gods Destroy - S3-E14

Corrected entry: Garth, shape-shifted as Spock, applies the Vulcan nerve pinch to Marta. Since Garth can only imitate the physical appearance of someone and not that person's life experience, Garth would have no knowledge of the Vulcan nerve pinch. The same could be said of when Garth shape shifts into Kirk - if Garth had Kirk's knowledge, he would have known the counter sign that Scotty used to challenge him for the beam up.

Correction: Garth, prior to being able to shape-shift and going insane, was a well respected Starfleet Captain and skilled tactician. In fact, he was required reading at the academy. Captain Garth would no doubt have extensive knowledge of Vulcans and the Vulcan nerve pinch, including learning how to do it.

Whom Gods Destroy - S3-E14

Corrected entry: Garth can apparently shapeshift clothes (or he doesn't wear clothes and the "clothing" we see is shapeshifted skin). But when Garth changes from Cory to Garth, a working phaser appears at his holster - where'd it come from? Or how'd he create it?

Correction: The weapon was concealed while in the form of Cory.

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.
