* InstantCostumeChange: While [[BoldlyComing Kirk]] fumbles his way through [[TheTalk The Talk]] with Charlie, he is wearing his command gold tunic. When he responds to an urgent call from the bridge in the next scene, he's back in the green tunic. The most likely explanation is that Kirk had so many [[ShirtlessScene shirtless scenes]] they couldn't fit them all into the show.

* EldritchSpaceship: The Thasians' ship resembles a nebulous mobile cloud of glowing green gas (in the original version); in the Remastered episode, it is similar looking, but with some kind of lighted tubes inside the gas cloud. The Thasians themselves are noncorporeal aliens who appeared to the Enterprise crew as floating, ghostly green humanoid heads.

* CharacterizationMarchesOn: Spock is smiling throughout Uhura's performance serenading him, merrily strumming along on his Vulcan lyre without so much as a quip or a sarcastic comment when she's finished. This is unquestionably the most laid-back we ever see Spock (without mind-altering devices being at work), and rings ''very'' false for him - contrast Spock and Uhura interacting the previous week in "The Man Trap".
** This was a case of ShipTease on the part of Nichols, Nimoy and the writing staff. When the show first started, they wanted to drop hints that Uhura and Spock would end up together. Nichols and Nimoy played it this way even into the third season (watch Spock whenever Uhura gets zapped or falls out of her chair). Of course, NBC couldn't allow it to be any more explicit than that, as interracial romance would have cost them the all-important southern affiliates. There's more WhatCouldHaveBeen in the recap for "[[Recap/StarTrekS3E10PlatosStepchildren Plato's Stepchildren]]".

* ScrewTheRulesIHaveSupernaturalPowers: Charlie Evans was given superpowers by the Thasians after his ship crashed and everyone else was killed. When the ''Enterprise'' picks him up, he has obsession with being liked and "removes" people from reality if they piss him off. Eventually the Thasians show up to take him back and repair the damage, but they're too late for a ship he destroyed that was trying to warn the ''Enterprise''. While Charlie repents in the end and promises never to use the powers again, Kirk and the Thasians agree that it's too much of a temptation.

* StalkerWithACrush: Charlie is one to Janice.
