Nasty behavior

Lt. Romaine acts very nasty (dare I say "bitchy") to almost everyone in this episode, especially Scotty, who supposedly loves her. But, I don't know why he does. Maybe Scotty's a masochist. I could never love a woman who treated me that way. Then again, I married and divorced one. - Adambomb1701 15:16, 2 February 2007 (UTC)

Not exactly sure what this has to do with the article in question... but... ok... -- Sulfur 15:18, 2 February 2007 (UTC)

Just a thought I had as TV Land ran this episode yesterday. By the way, I've always loved that overhead shot of the bridge in the teaser, especially when the camera zooms down on Kirk. may have been stock footage, or at least shot for an older episode. (Possibly "The Galileo Seven", which has a shot in its teaser from a similar angle.) The uniform shirts appear to be the velour worn in seasons one and two, not the double-knit polyester worn in the third season. It appears that someone other then Chekov, maybe Bill Blackburn's Hadley, is at the navigator station; the occupant has lieutenant's stripes on his sleeve. Also, Shatner's hair is a bit shorter in that shot than it was in the rest of the episode. - Adambomb1701 15:43, 2 February 2007 (UTC)

Moved from Background

  • Despite the zero-gravity environment created in the decompression chamber, Jan Shutan's hair is hanging down in that scene.
  • In a totally out-of-character moment, McCoy doesn't even blink when Spock asks if he is sure he put the correct data tape in the computer.
  • Some of the characters in this episode refer to Mira Romaine simply as "the girl." This happens no fewer than eight times during the episode.
  • Scotty's uniform sports a science chest badge instead of the usual engineering version.
  • Mira does not blink while being possessed by the beings from Zetar, but when they release her to speak for herself she begins blinking again.

Questioned note

I moved the following comment to this page from the article, along with the note in question. 31dot 11:02, March 18, 2012 (UTC)

Anon on 17-Mar-12 adds the final sentence, essentially arguing with the author that there is no inconsistency, an argument that should not be occurring in the article itself. Someone with the DVD should decide if there is or isn't a continuity problem. --Spike-from-NH
  • As Mira is rushed through the corridor to the medical lab, a crewman in a gold uniform can be seen screen right, turning a large valve on a wall panel with all of his might. However, a closer look reveals there is not really a wheel there; the actor is simply pantomiming. Actually, if you freeze the video, a rectangular tool can be seen in his hands.
That strikes me as a nitpick. -- sulfur 13:53, March 18, 2012 (UTC)
