Timeline[edit | edit source]
Chronology[edit | edit source]
- It was prior to 2233 because the USS Kelvin had deflector shields when the Narada attacked in 2233. (TOS movie & novelization: Star Trek)
- At some point, Kirk and Whipple became acquainted. Whipple called Kirk an old friend and knew he was a captain. Kirk knew Whipple had invented the phaton, saying the deflector mechanism had saved his life many times, and he was sympathetic to the professor.
Appendices[edit | edit source]
Background[edit | edit source]
- The cover artist mislabeled the warring spacecraft. The saucer-shaped "Mazda R-517" was actually the Ariman ship, whereas the rocket-shaped "Arima R-517" was the Mazdan ship.
- Spock said when people awoke from a Vulcan nerve pinch, they felt refreshed and rested.
- "Osric" was a character in William Shakespeare's Hamlet. (Wikipedia)
- Whipple said he’d rewired a tricorder into a personal transporter, but it seemed as likely that his quick tinkering could have turned it into a portable transporter console linked to the Enterprise's transporter.
- The title was printed Destination ... Annihilation! in part one and Destination .... Annihilation! in part two.
- The use of stardate 2604.4 was inconsistent with Pavel Chekov’s appearance as navigator.
- Scott’s uniform tunic was colored blue when Kirk and Spock beamed down to Quaraxus, but red when he beamed them back.
