  • Trivia

    • Why is Starfleet so big on contacting the Melkotians? In other episode like "Friday's Child," Kirk's said that they'll leave unaffiliated planets alone if requested (and the Capellans had a rare mineral Starfleet needed). They don't initially know the Melkotians are telepathic. Here he's supposed to "establish contact with the Melkotians at all costs" - if he's not speaking metaphorically, that means even at the cost of any number of crew lives.
