Early on in the series, there were disputes among Star Trek fans, as to which series at that time was superior, Star Trek (1966) or this show. Night Court (1984) spoofed this in an episode where a group of Trekkers are brought before Judge Stone (Harry Anderson) for getting into a fist fight over this dispute.

However, it would make it more difficult for the writers to have someone get around the guards somehow, so it's an understandable omission.
"Descent, Part 1" is the only episode of the series to show the episode credits during the teaser.
The first and last episodes were originally broadcast as two-hour TV-movies, and were later re-edited into two one-hour episodes each. Both edits involved removing some scenes from each episode.
