** Concerning Chekov's name, being born and raised in Russia, his actual birth name should be "Павел Андреевич Чехов" (at least according to TheOtherWiki), with "Pavel Andreievich Chekov" being just the English transliteration, serving kind of as a pronunciation guide for anyone who can't read Cyrillic letters. The "v" of the Latin alphabet thus doesn't ''actually'' exist in Chekov's name.

** After an exhaustive search of the Star Trek wiki, it can be revealed that those colored cubes are known as. . .[[http://memory-alpha.wikia.com/wiki/Unnamed_food_(23rd_century)#Colored_blocks "colored blocks."]] Apparently, the closest we get to a description of what they actually ''are'' appears as a stage direction in the script for ''Journey to Babel:'' "A table in the f.g. holds exotic drinks, des hers d'oeuvre fineberg. [sic]" But what the cubes were actually intended to be seems to be a secret known only to the Desilu props department. If I had to guess, though, I'd say they're probably a salad made of some kind of exotic fruit.

* What actually are those plates of coloured cubes that they eat? They look like melon but I doubt that is what they are meant to be.

** Yeah, the idea that the Intrepid is just some random ship that happens to have an all-Vulcan crew is far more likely than a ship implicitly designed for the purpose. In my opinion, the AlternateCharacterInterpretation of the Federation being a communist humans-only dystopia is still the best answer for the obvious human bias.

[[folder:Intrepidation]
* Here's a minor thing I always wonder about. In "The Immunity Syndrome," we learn of a destroyed Starfleet ship called the U.S.S. ''Intrepid,'' which has an all Vulcan crew. And all Vulcan crew, and yet it shares the name of several U.S. navy ships. I suppose it's better than giving it an egregiously Earth-centric named like ''Yorktown,'' but why doesn't it have a Vulcan name like the 24th century Vulcan-crewed Stafleet vessel ''T'Kumbra'' (or, implicitly ''ShirKahr'')? Perhaps it wasn't commissioned for that explicit purpose and no one thought it necessary (or logical) to rename it, but it broadly speaks to a humanocentric bias inherent in Starfleet.

*** So if McCoy met a human whose parents were, say, Moroccan and Maori, who was raised in New Zealand and identified with the Maori culture they grew up in, he'd use anti-Maori insults?
