Stardate: 4513.3 --The Enterprise is taken over by a new crewman, Mr. Norman, who redirects it to a distant planet. He booby traps the controls and the crew is forced to wait and see where they are going. They end up at a planet populated by androids... and it appears to be ruled by their old adversary, Harcourt Fenton Mudd, who wishes to use the Enterprise to get away.

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

Goof--When the Enterprise enters orbit around Mudd's Planet there are no rings visible around the planet. However when the Enterprise leaves orbit at the end of the episode, large rings are in evidence.

Trivia--Although there are 500 Alice models, we only see fifteen or sixteen. In order of appearance, they are: 1, 2, 66, 99, 19, 263, 118, 322, 471, 210, 27, 11, 3, 73 and 500. The number of the Alice that throws Scott into Kirk's group is too far away to read (although is does seem to be a double-digit figure.)


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.
