Stardate:1533.6--An adolescent human boy, raised among aliens who have given him supernatural powers, finds it impossible to return to normal human society.

original airdate--September 16,1966   Remastered Date: July 14th, 2007

music: "Theme from Star Trek" "Where No Man Has Gone Before" by Alexander Courage 

Goofs (4)--Spock and McCoy have a brief argument over whether Charlie could have survived on his own all those years. Because they're talking at the same time, Spock saying "Doctor" as McCoy says "Mr. Spock," the closed captioner apparently misunderstood McCoy's line. The caption has him calling Spock "Dr. Spock."

  • When McCoy is examining Charlie in sickbay, several shots of the diagnostic panel show a clear reflection of Charlie's upright profile. But Charlie isn't sitting up during the exam - he's lying flat on the table. The close-ups of the panel were shot while actor Robert Walker Jr. was either sitting or standing nearby.

Space: the final frontier. These are the voyages of the starship Enterprise. Its five-year mission: to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations, to boldly go where no man has gone before.
