* WhatCouldHaveBeen: The original script had Christine kissing with Spock, Kirk with an attractive yeoman, and Dr. McCoy with Uhura, then everybody changing around. NBC objected to this as "too sexual", so they reworked it various ways. In a 2013 interview with the Vancouver ''Sun'', Nichelle Nichols [[http://www.blastr.com/2013-4-19/little-known-sci-fi-fact-uhuras-famed-trek-kiss-wasnt-meant-be-kirk revealed]] that for a while, the plan was to have Uhura and Spock go into a clinch. Nichols and Nimoy practiced assiduously until Shat caught them at it and declared if anyone was going to kiss Nichols, it would have to be ''him''. This makes sense with previous hints and attempts on the part of Nichols and Nimoy, going back to [[Recap/StarTrekS1E1TheManTrap the very first episode]], to suggest that Spock and Uhura would eventually get together.

* TheissTitillationTheory: Gender flipped. The peplos worn by the women display the shoulders and arms, but are still modest compared to the scanty tunics Spock and Kirk are forced into.

* HeyItsThatGuy: Look out, Kirk! He may be short but he's the evil [[Series/TheWildWildWest Dr. Lovelace!]] Oh, wait, he's the only decent person on the planet.
** Philana bears resemblance to both Grace from ''Series/HillStreetBlues'' and a younger, blonder version of Dorothy from DrQuinnMedicineWoman. Not to mention Mea 3 from "A Taste of Armageddon." She also sounds like Trelane's mother.
