Goofs

Memory Alpha is a vast database of knowledge accessed freely throughout the universe. It is inconceivable that such a huge amount of data had no backups made. Even in the 1960s, when Start Trek was filmed, it was standard practice to have at least one copy of all data. See more »

Not a great episode overall but worth watching for the fun the writers are permitted to have with Spock. He gets to overplay his Vulcan side in scene after scene; alienating every crewman he victimizes. It might be that by this point they sensed the series would be toast in a couple months and played this stuff for laughs. Nimoy is obviously having a lot of fun with this script as well, as the overbearing Vulcan repeatedly inserts decimals into his pronouncements and criticizes everyone for not being sufficiently precise.

Also of note is the cold sore (?) that appears and reappears on the lower lip of the guest star (Scotty's love interest). Apparently this began in mid-production as the first scenes shot do not feature it.

They again, what do I know? I'm only a child.
