Random Trivia For This Title:

  • Contrary to popular belief, Captain Kirk never said "Beam me up, Scotty" in any episode or movie.
  • On at least two occasions ({Miri} & {City on the Edge of Forever}) the exterior Mayberry set from "The Andy Griffith Show" was used. In {City}, as Kirk walks Edith home, they pass by the easily recognizable courthouse, Floyd's barbershop, Emmett's repair shop, and the grocery.
  • Lloyd Bridges and Jeffrey Hunter both turned down the role of Captain Kirk.
  • In the {Tomorrow is Yesterday} episode, the Enterprise crew intercepts a radio report that the first manned moon shot will take place on Wednesday. Apollo 11 was launched nearly two years after the filming on 16 July 1969, a Wednesday.
  • [?] Victor Lundin appeared in the show Errand of Mercy. Although he did not have a speaking part he was the first Klingon to appear in the original [Star Trek] series.
  • Gene Roddenberry originally conceived the Klingons as looking more alien than they do in the series, but budget restriction prevented this. When Star Trek moved to the big screen, he was finally able to make Klingons look more alien. The resulting continuity break between TOS and the movies and later series was finally addressed in the [Star Trek: Deep Space Nine] episode {Trials and Tribble-ations} in which the character of Worf confirms that something did happen to make the Klingons appear human, but he refuses to elaborate.
  • Early drafts for the Harlan Ellison episode {City on the Edge of Forever} included a guest character, an Enterprise crew member who dealt in addictive drugs; it was this character who escaped into the past, via the Guardian of Forever. Gene Roddenberry asked him to change this element, on the grounds that no member of *his* crew would ever use or deal in illegal drugs. According to Ellison's account in the book 2895's the City on the Edge of Forever: The Original Teleplay That Became the Classic Star Trek Episode, for years after the series was cancelled, Roddenberry said that Ellison's original draft had been unusable because "he had Scotty dealing in interplanetary drugs" - although Mr. Scott does not even appear in that draft.
  • Jerry Goldsmith was Gene Roddenberry's first choice to write the theme for this series. Years later, Goldsmith wrote the theme to Star Trek: The Motion Picture which later was used for [Star Trek: The Next Generation].
  • In the hallways of the Enterprise there are tubes marked "GNDN", these initials stand for "goes nowhere does nothing".
  • When NBC was promoting Star Trek in magazines, all shots of Spock's pointed eyebrows and ears where airbrushed out of the pictures because NBC thought that no one would watch the show due to Spock's resemblance to the Devil.
