  • Trivia

    • Maybe it's just a Melkotian/alien thing, but they don't seem to be in any big hurry to wipe out what they consider a "disease." They just let Kirk & Co. wander through their Tombstone movie set for a number of hours doing nothing. Even if they want to kill Kirk with something from his own memories, why don't they just plant him and the others down seconds before the Shootout begins? Instead they create a whole cast of irrelevant characters (Behan, Ed, Sylvia, the dental patient) for the landing party to interact with but who have nothing to do with killing them.
