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 "Dinosaur Planet", 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.
- Uhura, Sulu and Chekov were addressed by their 2260s ranks.
- It was unclear whether Commodore Steve Decker was intended to be a new character or Commodore Matthew Decker, which would set this story prior to TOS episode: "The Doomsday Machine".
