if you know an nice anecdote, trivia or goofs put them here

*That The City on the Edge of Forever one of Williams favo episodes is.

The Man Trap:
*That This is the first episode where McCoy says, "He's dead, Jim

Charlie X
*William Shatner had his chest shaved for this episode. In the next episode to be aired, "Where No Man Has Gone Before", he clearly has a hairy chest, although that episode was filmed a good year before this one.

*Gene Roddenberry has an uncredited cameo as the voice of the galley chief who says to Kirk, "Sir, I put meat loaf in the ovens. There's turkeys in there now... real turkeys!

Where No Man Has Gone Before
*The only episode in which Captain Kirk (William Shatner) does not have the pointed sideburns that he sports throughout the series and films. In this episode, his sideburns are cut normally.

*During filming, the studio was infested with wasps who had built a nest up in the rafters. Sally Kellerman and William Shatner were both stung, the latter on his eyelid which swelled up, causing delays in the filming of some of his scenes.

The Naked Time:
*The bowling alley mentioned by Lt. Riley was never seen on the series, but did show up on the USS Enterprise blueprints issued in the 1970's

*After the scene where Spock is weeping, Leonard Nimoy's fan mail increased exponentially. Viewers were enthralled with the idea that Spock was secretly a reservoir of love and passion instead of an empty emotional void.

What Are Little Girls Made Of?
*The replicator turntable appears on the infamous Star Trek Blooper Reel playing host to several drunken cast members using it for a Merry-Go-Round.

Miri:
*When Kirk rushes into the lab with his recently-returned communicator he is holding a little girl in one hand. That is his daughter, Melanie.
*The red-headed boy, Stephen McEveety, is the son of the episode's director, Vincent McEveety. One of the girls is played by Dawn Roddenberry

Balance Of Terror:
*Mark Lenard plays the Romulan Commander, an apparent enemy of the Enterprise and it's crew, however later in his career he played the famed role of Spock's father Sarek.

Arena:
this is sad:
An improperly rigged explosion in this episode caused lifelong hearing damage and tinnitus for William Shatner.

The Devil in the Dark:
*William Shatner's favorite episode

Seven people are beamed up to the ship at the end of "City," but the transporter has only six pads. ;)

In the Star Trek episode "A piece of the action" No stardate is actually logged in the episode. A stardate of 4598.0 appeared in Bjo Trimble's Star Trek Concordance, apparently using an earlier script version, and the photonovel provides a closing stardate 4598.7.

Amok Time:
*First appearance of the Vulcan hand salute.

The Changeling:
*When the Enterprise crew view biographical data on the scientist Jackson Roykirk, the man shown on screen is actually director Marc Daniels.

Mirror, Mirror:
*That In the original outline for this episode, Captain Kirk was trapped in the Mirror Universe alone, and it was gradually rejecting him, treating him like he was an invading germ by poisoning his systems. Both ideas were dropped.

Mirror, Mirror Goofs:
* Revealing mistakes: Poorly-placed camera angles reveal the fight sequence choreography between Kirk and the "mirror" Spock. On more than one occasion, very noticeable gaps are visible as they fight.

* Revealing mistakes: Obvious Stunt Doubles for William Shatner (Kirk) and Leonard Nimoy (Spock) in the fight scenes.

*Crew or equipment visible: Look at the scene where Dr. McCoy uses a hypo to gain entrance to Engineering for Scotty and himself. When the door first opens, the shoulder of the set crew can be seen briefly behind the actors.

The Doomsdaymachine:
* That This was one of several episodes produced solely to use preexisting sets in an effort to save money.(mine opion this is the worst episode and now i know why LOL )

*That this is James Doohan's favorite episode for its highlighting of the engineering aspects of the Star Trek world.

Catspaw:
* James Doohan (Scotty) lost his right middle finger during WWII. Most of his scenes are shot to hide it; however, it is very noticeable in the episode "Catspaw." When Scotty is holding a phaser pistol on Kirk & Spock, only two fingers are holding the butt of the phaser.

Catspaw goofs:
* Revealing mistakes: When Kirk fights McCoy, McCoy's weapon falls to the ground and bounces showing itself to be made of rubber.

* Continuity: The black cat is a short hair in some shots and a long hair in others.


I,Mudd:
*During the filming, Gene Roddenberry was in a panic because he needed at least two female identical twins and couldn't find any. Then one night while driving home he saw Alyce Andrece and Rhae Andrece walking down a street. Roddenberry literally pulled up beside them, jumped out of his car and told them that they were going to be on television!

I, Mudd Goofs:
* Plot holes: When Kirk and the landing party short circuited the androids, there was no way to get back to the ship, since all his crew was now on the planet and the Enterprise was manned by androids, which would have been short circuited as well.

The Deady Years:
* William Shatner reportedly threatened producer 'Bob Justman' with bodily harm after enduring many torturous hours during the old-age makeup process. "Who's afraid of such a wrinkled, feeble old coot!" scoffed Justman. Nevertheless, Justman locked his office door and hid under his desk until shooting was finished.

*Spoiler, Originally, the intention was to have Captain Kirk revert to his normal self on the way to the bridge. This idea was dropped, and in the final version of this episode, Captain Kirk returns to normal while strapped to a pallet in Dr. McCoy's sickbay on the Enterprise.

Obsession Goofs:
* Revealing mistakes: Captain Kirk and Ensign Garrovick are fighting on the planet. When they are up against the rock wall, the entire rockface moves.

*Revealing mistakes: In the first scene, Spock phasers off a sample of rock. You can see the piece that will fall off before he fires.


The Trouble with Tribbles:
* Tribbles continue to fall on Kirk after the container should have emptied out onto him. It is later revealed in "Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: Trials and Tribble-ations (#5.6)" (1996) that the Tribbles are being tossed down the hatch at Kirk as they are being discarded for not being a Tribble-bomb which Sisko and Dax are attempting to find.

*This episode nominated for a Hugo Award for Best Dramatic Presentation at the 1968 Science Fiction Convention.
* This is the first time in the series the Klingon language is mentioned, and the only time in the entire franchise where it is referred to as "Klingonee" (no 's';).

*Audio/visual unsynchronized: When Kirk and Scott discuss the fight aboard the space station, Kirk says, "What caused it, Scotty?" Right at the beginning of the next shot, we can see him clearly repeating the line, but we don't hear his voice saying it a second time.

The Naked Time Goofs :
*When Spock enters the briefing room, there is a sign on the door saying, "Briefing room 2". It was on the left side of the door. When they leave the briefing room, the tag is on the right side of the door.

*Scotty burns through the bulkhead with a phaser on heat/cut and then immediately grabs the resulting panel and yanks it out with his bare hands - ouch!

The Naked Time Trivia:
*This episode was originally supposed to be the first part of a two part episode that ended with "Tomorrow is Yesterday", but both episodes were rewritten when the idea was dropped

Miri Trivia wow it was realy a familie episode for the crew:
*Grace Lee Whitney's sons are among the children that appear in this episode

Miri Goofs:
*When Rand is tied to a chair, the rope tying her there changes position between the long and close shots

The Corbomite Maneuver Goofs:
* Kirk calls the Enterprise the "United Earth Ship" (U.E.S.)
Enterprise, he should have said "United Space Ship" (U.S.S.)

*The space sensor array wasn't moving at the beginning of this episode

The Conscience of the King Trivia:
*This is the only episode of original Star Trek where the Enterprise's observation deck is seen.


Shore Leave trivia/goofs:
*Although Kirk makes a big deal out of McCoy's apparent death, he never even wonders where Mary Teller/Angela Martine has gone or what happened to her. It's uncharacteristic of Kirk to not at least mention something like that, especially when it's a woman.

*This episode was filmed on location at a wildlife reserve called "Africa USA" once located in Redwood Shores, California. The reserve was also the main shooting location for the 1960s TV series Daktari. The reserve was later merged and moved to Vallejo, California as part of the Six Flags Theme parks system, and the original land is now owned and occupied by Oracle Corporation.


Arena Trivia:
* This is one of a few episodes in which the crew see what is happening to Captain Kirk on a planet's surface via the bridge's viewscreen. Other episodes include "The Gamesters Of Triskelion" and "The Savage Curtain."

*This is the first episode where it is mentioned the Enterprise can't transport somebody when their shields are up

Court Martial Trivia:
* This is the first and only time we've ever seen Kirk hit a button on his chair to start an alert. Before he always gives the order and someone else does it.

Court Martial Goofs:
* The use of stunt doubles during Kirk and Finney's fight at the end of this episode is very obvious.

* Kirk's shirt was torn in the fight, but Kirk's stunt double's shirt wasn't torn

The Return of the Archons Goofs:
* As Festival begins, the landing party runs for cover. Watch and you can see a big thrown rock bounce off the head of one of the security guards. He doesn't even seem to notice.

Trivia: This is the first time we hear of the Prime Directive

This Side of Paradise Trivia:
*As with many amazing discoveries, no one ever remembers this planet and the spores later. They can heal disease and regrow missing organs. Just beam someone down, let them get healed, beam them back up and get them mad, and voila, one super-healed patient.


The Devil in the Dark Trivia:
* Several times in this episode, Kirk uses his communicator and it doesn't "chirp" when he opens it

* While Kirk is waiting for Spock to arrive, after his meeting the Horta and sitting down, we see him holding his phaser pointed at the ground, near his waist. We then cut to a wide shot when Spock comes in and we see Kirk holding his arm stretched out, only this time he is holding his communicator. Then we cut back to a close-up of Kirk and his arm's holding the phaser again, pointing down.(During the filming of this episode, William Shatner's father died, so for most of the shots where there isn't a frontal view of the captain, it is a double)


The City on the Edge of Forever Trivia:
* What happened to Spock's superior Vulcan hearing? He was only a few feet away when McCoy first enters the mission and talks to Edith

* Edith Keeler says to McCoy, "My young man is taking me to see a Clark Gable movie." In 1930, Clark Gable was an unknown bit player -- he didn't become a star until he appeared opposite Jean Harlow in Red Dust (1932)

* This episode ranked #92 on TV Guide's 1997 list of the "100 Greatest TV Episodes of All Time."

* In the 2008 Emmy Awards, history being changed due to the time travel, was in the list of the Most Memorable Drama TV Moments. However, it didn't make it to the top 5.

* In the scene a deranged McCoy confronts the homeless man just after arriving in 1930, DeForest Kelley is wearing a ring on his left pinky. It wasn't there before and afterward.


Amok Time Trivia:
* With its second season, Star Trek switches from Thursday nights @ 8:30 to Friday nights @ 8:30

* This episode was originally (and perhaps rather unfortunately) summarized by TV Guide with the double-entendre "Mr. Spock succumbs to a powerful mating urge and nearly kills Captain Kirk.

* Spock throws the soup out of his quarters, then Kirk has a conversation of several minutes with him. When Kirk leaves, the soup is still on the wall, which doesn't speak well for the crew's clean-up efficiency.

Amok Time Goofs:
* In the mid-episode with Christine in Spock's cabin, he wipes away a tear on her cheek and her face is clear. In the next shot a second later, what seems to be the same tear is back on her face again.

Platos Stepchilderen Trivia
* The song that Spock performs is writen by Leonard Nimoy  himself  the song called "Maiden Wine"

And The Childeren Shall Lead Goofs:
* When Spock grabs Kirk and they get into the turbolift, it starts up and goes exactly where they want it to go even though they don't give it any verbal commands or use the hand control.

Is There in Truth No Beauty? Goofs:
* At the end of the dinner, Kirk finishes off his glass, then the camera cuts to McCoy. Then it cuts back to Kirk and his glass is full.

Day of the dove Trivia:
* At the end when the group is laughing at the entity, Leonard Nimoy (Spock) is struggling to stifle laughing along with them.

* The episode was written with Kor as the lead Klingon, however Jon Colicos was working on another project and was unable to reprise the role (much to his regret, reportedly) and the character of Kang was created instead.

Spectre of the Gun Trivia:
* DeForrest Kelley gets to play both sides of the fence - in the 1957 movie Gunfight at the O.K. Corral he played Morgan Earp

* Rex Holman, who plays Morgan Earp, would later appear in the fifth Trek movie as J'Onn

* For the first and only time in the series, Kirk refers to the ship's phasers (when he orders an attack on the Melkotian buoy) as "phaser guns."

This is not a goof, necessarily, but I always thought it was funny that Finney grabbed that huge wrench during the fight. I mean, what could it POSSIBLY have been used for in the 23rd Century??? :D

All Our Yesterdays Trivia:
* The only episode of TOS with no scenes set aboard the Enterprise.

Turnabout Intruder Trivia:
* William Shatner had a severe case of flu during filming of this episode. At one point he had to lift Sandra Smith in his arms, carry her to a couch and put her on it: during the first take he got as far as the couch and dropped her. Fortunately it was well padded, and Smith bounced several times; according to Joan Winston, who was visiting the set, Shatner looked down at Smith and said, "You know I love you, baby, but you've got to lose about six inches off that ass."

* the last shot a shirless Kirk/Shatner, Yummy :p
