George Takei missed nine episodes of the second season because he was away filming The Green Berets (1968). The character of Chekov was created in his absence, and Takei's lines were given to Walter Koenig. According to Takei, he was infuriated and was ready to despise Koenig when he returned. But the two ended up becoming close friends. Indeed, their respective characters became an iconic pair in the series, sitting side-by-side at the ship's helm and weapons controls on the bridge.

The color of a phaser beam depends on the weapon's setting ("stun" or "kill") but the colors are inconsistent between episodes. See more »
All right, you mutinous, disloyal, computerized half-breed. We'll see about you deserting my ship.
The term "half-breed" is somewhat applicable, but "computerized" is inaccurate. A machine can be computerized, not a man.
What makes you think you're a man? You're an overgrown jackrabbit. An elf with a hyperactive thyroid.
Jim, I don't understand...
Of course you don't understand. You don't have the brains to understand. All you have is printed circuits.
Captain, if you will excuse me.

On some episodes, the closing credits show a still that is actually from the Star Trek blooper reel. It is a close-up of the actor who played the android body in "Return to Tomorrow, removing his latex make up. In the reel, He is shown taking it off, while an off-screen voice says "You wanted show business, you got it!" See more »
This has to be one of the greatest series in history. I really enjoy watching a lot of the episodes especially those from the second and third seasons when Chekov was on and the supporting cast really became complete. I especially loved the episodes that dealt with what happens when someone upsets the natural course that a planet goes on (eg. "A Piece of the Action"). In the case of those episodes, usually someone wants to help a planet achieve its destiny at a faster rate or leaves a form of literature or technology behind leading to disastrous results as was the case with the Ekosians who followed the Nazi model or the world that used the model of 1920's Chicago to base their societies on. This pretty much is a moral for any world including our own and how we should leave not only people follow their own path but let nature take it's own path.
