* BottleEpisode: As the first proper (non-pilot) episode, almost all of it is spent on the Enterprise bridge getting to know the main charcters, both old (Spock's infamously stoic new personality; George Takei as helmsman rather than a bit part) and new (DeForest Kelley, Nichelle Nichols, and Grace Lee Whitney make their debut).

An ordinary day on the ''Enterprise''. Kirk is taking a required physical, so Spock has the chair. Suddenly, they run into what looks like the [[AppleMacintosh Apple Spinning Beach Ball of Doom]] that they just can't seem to escape. When evasive maneuvers fail, Spock calls for a red alert. Navigator Bailey, who's struggling to deal with all this, suddenly becomes a little trigger happy until Kirk reminds him who's in charge. Kirk tells Bailey to plot a spiral course at increasing speeds to get away from this NegativeSpaceWedgie. When it starts emitting radiation, Kirk orders to open fire, destroying the object.

* SciFiWritersHaveNoSenseOfMass: The ''Enterprise'' encounters a mysterious cube, which Sulu says is 107 metres on each side and masses just under 11,000 metric tonnes. Scotty says it must be solid metal, leaving him wondering how it could be powered and how it moves around. But the quoted measurements give a density of about 9 kilograms per cubic metre, significantly less than Styrofoam -- implying the cube is almost certainly hollow (they may have been aiming for 9 tonnes per cubic metre, which is between the densities of iron and lead, and dropped a factor of a thousand somewhere).

* SecondEpisodeIntroduction: This is the first non-pilot episode of ''Star Trek''. Introduced are Uhura, Yeoman Rand, and Dr. Leonard "Bones" [=McCoy=] (as a SecondEpisodeSubstitute for Dr. Mark Piper); it is not, however, the second episode aired, as the pilot episode "Where No Man Has Gone Before" was held back until later in the first season.

* SeeTheWhitesOfTheirEyes: The cube initially stops over 1500 metres from the ''Enterprise'', although on-screen they appear nose to nose with each other. Later the cube gets closer than 51 metres before phasers destroy it. (That's closer than half the cube's size.)

* ShirtlessScene: Kirk removes his shirt for a physical exam. Guess they decided it was more dignified than a butt-baring hospital gown.

* ShirtlessScene: Kirk removes his shirt for a physical exam. Guess they decided it was more dignified than a butt-baring hospital gown. After learning that the Enterprise is on alert, he proceeds to walk down the corridor this way, and nobody blinks an eye. Of course, considering the frequency with which Kirk goes shirtless or [[ClothingDamage tears his shirt]], it's likely that everybody on the ship has seen the captain half-dressed.
