Kirk's dialogue is specifically referencing a sea voyage (not a space voyage), so it seems fine for what it is...probably a historical reference on his part (he was something of a history/antiquities buff), but it's possible that Earth and/or other worlds in the 23rd century have "old-style" sea voyages as a tourist attraction.
Yep, works for me.

Re: Embarassing moments during good episodes

Gamesters of Triskelion, Shatner flubs a line and it went through:

"What's happening to Lt. You-Hear-Ra?"

Pretty much anything Yeoman Mears says in Galileo Seven makes me cringe ("Oh...it's getting hotttt!" "We could use a little inspiration!" "I got a little bump on the head." Geeeeez).

And having Yeoman Zahra point out the aliens in Operation--Annihilate! don't look real just reinforced that they, well, didn't look real.

And in "Balance of Terror," in at least one scene, Kelley (again) pronounces the name of the commander of the Fesarius, Balok, as something like "Baal-lik," while everyone else pronounces it "Bay-lock."
Corbomite Maneuver, actually.

Well Deforest was from the South and had an accent. He lost most of it but some of it slipped through. He couldn't say nuclear either.

But hey McCoy was from the South too so it fits with his character.

It always seems odd when a character pronounces a name differently than the other characters, when in-story, it's a name that he would have only heard from the others, and not read.

He did it in the movies, too, Skipper. Mount "Suh-LEE-uh" instead of "Seh-LAY-Ah", for instance.

And it was "BAH-lock".
To me, the way he pronounced it sounded as if it rhymed with "phallic."

Of course, in RL, the actor may have seen the name typewritten in the script pages but not yet heard it pronounced. That doesn't explain, however, McCoy's mispronunciation of "sehlat" immediately after Amanda says it in the same scene!

Catpaw, the scene where Jackson topples off the transporter platform. He doesn't collapse to the floor, he falls over like a tree and hits the floor hard.

That was a great fall actually, because stuntman Jay Jones (credited as Jimmy Jones) didn't appear to break the fall with his hands. It was his first stunt for the series.

To be fair to Kelley, though, his line and Jane Wyatt's were both close-ups, so he may not have heard the line from the other set-up.

Here's the exact dialogue:
KIRK: I wish I were on a long sea voyage somewhere. Not too much deck tennis, no frantic dancing, and no responsibility. Why me? I look around that Bridge, and I see the men waiting for me to make the next move. And Bones, what if I'm wrong?
MCCOY: Captain, I --
KIRK: No, I don't really expect an answer.
I love that scene. It gives us insight into Kirk's character, his almost obsessive need for command together with his penchant for self-doubt and occasionally wishing he could just chuck it all. We hear similar sentiments in Kirk's "No beach to walk on" speech in "The Naked Time" and Capt. Pike's exchange with Dr. Boyce in "The Cage."
I love that scene as well. Those type of comments from Kirk helped make him my favorite hero character.

Very true. I'm from the south as well. Born and raised in north east Georgia. I never noticed anything odd about McCoy's pronouncing those are any other words, until I read about it in this thread.

The real-world reason for the alternate pronunciations was obvious enough, but as there wasn't such a reason in-story, it was something that tended to take me out of the episode a little when it happened.

You got it all wrong!

He was attempting a Vulcan mind meld with the vampire cloud.

But lousy stuntmen? I think the worst offender is the Gideonite guard knocked "out" by Spock in "The Mark of Gideon".

Re: Embarassing moments during good episodes

In "Space Seed", Khan forces the door to his quarters open and attacks the guard outside the door. The stuntman does a great backflip across the corridor into a bulkhead, but his pants split along the inseam and his long underwear is exposed.

Not exactly embarrassing for me, but maybe for the guard.
