Re: Lithium

Lithium is a substance known to our science and has defined properties. I started a thread about its use and definition in TOS some while ago.

For "Where No Man Has Gone Before" I think Sam Peeples had lithium (as in "nuclear fusion") in mind, but the continued use in "Mudd's Women" was a production error they realized and thus fixed it by referring to "dilithium" instead.
