  • Notes

    • This episode marks the first and only time that the original series makes direct mention of current established religious beliefs when Uhura states that after monitoring the planet's transmissions, she realized that the inhabitants were not referring to "the sun up in the sky" but to "the son of God". Kirk then remarks "Caesar and Christ, they had them both and the word is spreading only now."
