    He leaves things behind on planets. And hobos who were supposed to be ancestors of famous people disrupt themselves in the 30s when he visits. He has lost all phaser privileges.

    Heh. But he takes phasers on many missions after that. That's what bugs. If he had a "no phaser" policy, which would make no sense but would probably be in alignment with some FauxRoddenberryesque vision, then they had ample opportunity to tell us that and be consistent about it.

    Because de-materializing is a different process than re-materializing?

    All these decades of watching Star Trek, having seen City on the Edge of Forever probably 20 times, and I never noticed the radiation hazard sign on the front of the apartment building where Kirk and Spock have their "flop".

    My wife and I were watching it on NetFlix last night and I noticed it, at the 38:00 minute mark, just above and to the right of the front door of the building on the establishing shot before it cuts inside to Kirk and Spock. Hilarious since "atomic power is years away" as we know, and Kirk earlier states.

    My original season set DVDs are packed away so I can't check. Was it always there? Was it inserted for a laugh when they remastered it? Crazy. :)

    I guess Edith Keeler was so far ahead of her time that she thought a fallout shelter might come in handy someday.

    Is that a gag or was it really there? Can't be England as there are no fallout shelters there at all!

    Mirror, Mirror....I just noticed that the redshirt at the Engineering station walks offscreen after Spock enters the Bridge. He has the same type of beard as Spock. It must be standard grooming in the Empire.

    Sorry about that, chief. I couldn’t find a decent screenshot that shows this dude sideways.

    I’m afraid I don’t have that NCIS filter that can show pixels where none existed. Nevertheless, nice pickup. There are additional goatees in the Mirror Universe.

    Fallout shelters in the U.S. were marked with the Civil Defense logo.

    It's a bit hard to tell from that blurry image, but the sign on the building looks like three yellow triangles on a black circle.

    I suppose that could be an early version of the radiation hazard symbol, which is is a circle surrounded by three pie-slice shapes.

    Maybe someone in the building was studying the effect of gamma rays on man-in-the-moon marigolds.

    Yes, I did some Google-Fu and found that the yellow-on-black trefoil was also commonly used as a fallout shelter sign. So I stand corrected. :shrug:

    As it happens, the county building I work at still has both signs, so I feel doubly safe.
