Can anyone with access to this book check "Day of the Dove" for the (in)famous line about "50 years of hostilities with the Klingons" (allegedly by McCoy)? At MA and elsewhere they haven't found it on the DVDs, uncut episodes, or shooting scripts, and there's the question of where the (alleged) quote came from. The Blish novelization is a good candidate, but I haven't seen my copy for over a decade, and I suspect it's either been thrown out or is in a box deep in the recesses of my parents' attic. Either way, I can't check on it myself.--Emperorkalan 13:04, 23 February 2007 (UTC)
- I've just read through the novelization and could find no reference to the 50 years of hostilities. The only time reference was the three years since the Organian Peace Treaty was signed. The line could've come from the original script for the episode, but it wasn't in the novelization. --The Doctor 13:19, 23 February 2007 (UTC)
Removed factoids Edit
I've removed the following, this is not the place for this kind of information, except maybe the last one, but it's so poorly phrased it's hard to tell--8of5 03:10, 12 July 2007 (UTC):
- R.M. Merrick is given a forename of Robert.
- James T. Kirk and Spock express surprise when told Pavel Chekov is an only child.
- The Platonians force Kirk to mention Tweedledee and Tweedledum.
- Planet 892 IV, which is described as having had no Wars at all since 1867.
- Starfleet is, as was common in early publications, called SpaceFleet.
