  • Trivia

    • When the android Kirk boards the Enterprise and takes a "command pack," he walks out and down to the transporter, but he doesn't have the pack in his hand (this is because they used a shot from "The Man Trap" to cut costs).

    • As Korby rotates the table to show Christine the real and android Kirks, in one shot as we see the real Kirk, on the turntable's opposite side you can see it's missing the depression both sides have.

    • Ruk stands behind and to the left of Kirk as he frees himself from the chair he's tied to with his left hand, but doesn't seem to notice a thing.

  • Quotes

    • Spock: Are you sure you recognize his voice?
      Chapel: Have you ever been engaged, Mr. Spock?

    • Korby: Do you realize the discoveries lost because of superstition? Of ignorance? Of a layman's inability to comprehend?
      Kirk: A simple layman's question, Doctor--where is my other crewman?!?

    • Korby: Can you understand what I'm offering mankind?
      Kirk: Programming. Different word, but the same old promises made by Genghis Khan, Julius Caesar, Hitler, Ferris, Maltuvis.

    • Korby: You with me, Captain?
      Kirk: You've created your own Kirk. Why do you need me?
      Korby: I created him to impress you, not to replace you.
      Kirk: I'm impressed, Doctor... but not the way you think!

    • Spock: You're going back down?
      Android Kirk: Mind your own business, Mr. Spock. I'm sick of your half-breed interference, do you hear?
      Spock: Yes, very well, Captain.

    • Kirk: Something bothering you, Mr. Spock?
      Spock: Frankly, I was rather dismayed by your use of the term "half-breed," Captain. You must admit it is an unsophisticated expression.
      Kirk: I'll remember that, Mr. Spock, the next time I find myself in a similar situation.

    • Spock: Where's Dr. Korby?
      Kirk: Dr. Korby...was never here.

    • Kirk: We humans are full of unpredictable emotions that logic cannot solve.

    • Korby: Can you imagine how life could be improved if we could do away with jealousy, greed, hate....
      Kirk: It can also be improved by eliminating love, tenderness, sentiment -- the other side of the coin.
