  • Trivia

    • It's not clear how Spock determines that Gem couldn't have evolved on the planet. It's a Class M planet with no noticeable difference in atmosphere or gravity or lighting. It in fact appears a bit like Vulcan or a desert environment on Earth. The Vians presumably evolved there, and they don't look that substantially different from Gem other than larger heads.
