  • Notes

    • David Gerrold's original story pitch called for an ending that would not have resolved the conflict between the Troglytes and the Stratos dwellers by the end of the episode. His original script called for McCoy to declare near the end, "Yes, but how many children will die in the meantime?". This was rejected by the producer and Margaret Armen was brought in to rewrite the script to make it more positive by introducing the use of gas masks much to Gerrold's chagrin, although he retained story credit.
