* ClothingDamage: A bizarre instance; it's already been established that hyposprays can be used to inject people through their clothing, and even if they did need to be used on bare skin, [=McCoy=] could have just injected Kirk on the neck (which isn't covered by his uniform), or have him roll up his sleeve. Instead, for absolutely no explicable reason, [=McCoy=] tears open Kirk's uniform at the shoulder in order to inject him.

* CargoShip: Kirk confirms it in the midst of his breakdown. It's even Deconstructed somewhat, as the relationship he describes is not a healthy one at all:
-->'''Kirk''': I give. She takes. She won't permit me my life. I've got to live hers.

revealing his... ''[[CargoShip fondness]]''... for the ''Enterprise''



Chaos engulfs the ship as the virus spreads: crew members act careless, laughing maniacs run around the halls painting creepy messages in red paint, Sulu menaces passersby with a fencing sword, and Spock enters a crippling depression. Worst of all, Riley has locked himself in the engine room, stranding the ship just as the planet is breaking up, threatening the ''Enterprise''. Kirk and Scotty try to break into the engine room while [=McCoy=] cooks up a vaccine. However, by the time Scotty gets the door open, it's revealed that the engines were stopped completely and that restarting them would take more time than the planet has. Desperate, Kirk orders Scotty to... [[{{Technobabble}} do something involving matter/antimatter annihilation]] to get the Enterprise out of the way. Scotty cries that it only has a [[MillionToOneChance 1-in-10,000 chance]] of not blowing them to smithereens (so, naturally, it will work perfectly), but he needs Spock's help. Kirk tries to [[GetAHoldOfYourSelfMan slap Spock out of his funk]], but Spock only recovers when Kirk empathizes with him under the virus' influence and reveals the heavy burden of being Captain of the ''Enterprise'' -- contrary to popular belief, ''you can never get laid,'' at least not with crew members. [=McCoy=] cures the crew and the ship escapes, but with a strange side-effect: it travels about three days backwards in time, in the series' first instance of time travel.

* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: Uhura's quip when Sulu says, "I'll protect you fair maiden.": "Sorry, neither."
* GracefulLoser: After going through considerable effort to force their way into Engineering, Kirk leads the charge with Scotty and a pair of Security crewmen. Riley looks up from the chair and dryly observes: "No dance tonight."
* HollywoodToneDeaf: Kirk might not mind Riley's singing so much if it had somewhat less enthusiam and a little more musical talent.

* MadnessMantra: Spock tries to ward off the effects of the disease by repeating "I am in control of my emotions." and reciting multiplication tables.
* MillionToOneChance
* MurderWater: Contrary to the episode synopsis you just read, the episode itself doesn't have the cause be a virus -- that was the retcon used in the 'revisiting' to cover the fact that the central premise of "The Naked Time" fell squarely into ScienceMarchesOn: polywater (a kind of high-viscosity, low-freezing point water that would tend to make other water into its own type). It's not actually ''sentient'', but it is extremely dangerous, can move in ways that should be impossible, and is (a type of) water.

* MillionToOneChance
MillionToOneChance: Scotty gives the odds of successfully cold-starting the engines without blowing themselves up as 1 in 10,000--and that's ''with'' a supercomputer and weeks to calculate the formula. Fortunately, Spock is better than a supercomputer, if they can get him to stop crying long enough to focus.

-->'''Riley''': And now, crew, I will render "Kathleen"...ooonnne moooore tiiiimme!
-->'''Kirk''' ''(muttered)'': Please, not again.
* {{Oireland}}: Riley goes uber-Irish while drunk.
* PlotHole: Dr. [=McCoy=], a front-line medical worker, also never succumbs to the disease - pretty impressive considering that it manages to afflict his head nurse.

* PlotHole: Is Uhura immune to the disease? She plainly touched Sulu's bare flesh. There is a later scene where she gets snippy with the Captain, but it was just due to stress.
** Dr. [=McCoy=], a front-line medical worker, also never succumbs to the disease - pretty impressive considering that it manages to afflict his head nurse. It would seem to indicate that some of the crew simply aren't susceptible.
