Background[edit | edit source]
- The story's packaging used imagery from TOS movie: The Motion Picture, which was released the same year. However, as in "The Robot Masters", the Enterprise inside and out appeared in its pre-refit configuration even though the crew wore early 2270s Starfleet uniforms. This also occurred in the five McDonald's Video Communicator comic strips.
- Chekov was the ship's helmsman while Sulu was addressed as an ensign.
- The captain's log in "The Human Factor", stardate 96.024, cited this story as being a recent event.
