  • Follow the white rabbit here. By Stardate, this episode takes place well over a year ( some 8 plus episodes) past the events seen in in last week’s episode: Balance of Terror.

    Weird how the whole Oirishness that Star Trek seemed to have passed through this to Next Generation and Up the Long Ladder, and only stopping in DS9’s If Wishes Were Horses, when Rumplestiltskin was originally meant to be a leprechaun, until Colm Meaney loudly and rightly objected to the nonsense.

    I think the biggest issue that I have with TOS is that things like this planet pop up on a regular basis. It’s amazing technology, an advanced race. The Federation would be on this planet with diplomats and researchers like ticks on a hound dog. Yet within the show’s own continuity, no one goes back to this planet until the Enterprise revisits it in TAS. What’s up with that?

    It’s an example of how TV outside of Soap Operas was produced in the 1960s-90s for the most part. No continuity between episodes, not over arcing plot lines, and everything is episodic, we reset the show at the end of the current episode.

    If Star Trek were developed today, the show’s bible would be full of information on the characters. They’d avoid story lines like Miri, or Shore Leave alone, as they have implications and would spout multiple episodes dealing with them.
