Episode Behind the Scenes
WINK OF AN EYE
Behind the Scenes
The idea of "super-accelerated aliens" as well as the title itself would later be recycled by
"Star Trek: Voyager"
in the episode
"Blink of an Eye"
Although it is common belief that Captain Kirk had sex with every woman he encountered, this episode is one of the rare times when the captain did in fact have sexual intercourse.
In a blooper, even before Captain Kirk super-accelerates into the "Scaolsian Realm", the bridge turbolift doors remain open, even though they should have closed.
