  1. I did think that before they let Scotty beam down they might search him for knives and check that there were no belly dancers on the station!

    Unfortunately whilst this is one of the most popular episodes of the series, it wasn’t popular with one very important person – Gene Roddenberry. He disliked the comedy slant that was creeping in to the episodes in Season 2 under producer and head writer Gene Coon, and this caused a rift between the two Genes that saw Coon step down mid-season (though he continued to write for the show).

  2. The recurring unfunny Chekov joke about thus-and-so being originally from Russia was a Cold War parody of Soviet propaganda that claimed many technologies common in the West to have actually been invented by Soviet scientists. Viewers of the time would have been laughing at the Soviets, not at Chekov.
