The salt vampire and the frowning long-faced alien always creeped me out as stills behind the closing credits but I wouldn't know the stories which went with the pictures until quite a bit later, when "Man Trap" and "The Corbomite Maneuver" were shown as between-season reruns.
I'm sure you saw "The Man Trap" as a re-run, but it wasn't shown "between-seasons," as you remember it. Indeed, "The Man Trap" was never re-run on NBC during the show's first run.
Huh. I knew that it wasn't until much later that I finally saw the episode, but I don't think I'd realized that it never had a repeat until after the series finished.

You must have seen it later, in syndication.
I must have, and I have learned a thing I didn't know before.
Let me never fall into the vulgar mistake of dreaming
that I am persecuted whenever I am contradicted.
