  • The game uses a vague description of space travel in explanations of the pieces' moves around the board, without specification as to whether the mission spacecraft use impulse engines or warp drive, what kind of distances they are crossing or the nature of their fuel. If the ships were all using impulse engines, it would create the likelihood the planets mentioned were all in the same star system, with those planets being in different systems only likely if the ships were using faster-than-light travel.
  • The planets were all named with letters from the Greek language alphabet, creating an at-the-time unintended correlation with the planet Delta mentioned years later in TOS movie, novelization & comic adaptation: The Motion Picture.
