An empty starship on a crowded planet[edit]

I suggest that the Gideonites obtained holodeck technology and installed it in a room adjacent to their council chamber. This would also explain the peculiar behaviour of the viewing port as well as the viewscreen, as well as it "seeming to not change" when Kirk drops the ship from warp speed to impulse. A century earlier, the NX-01 Enterprise encountered a race with convincing holodeck technology, so it must have gotten around to some races. GBC 05:57, 23 October 2006 (UTC)

I would love to see someone include an image of the crowded overpopulation, as seen twice in this episode. I remember seeing this episode when it was first shown, and that image still haunts me, 37 years later. --Aragonzo 14:03, 30 January 2007 (UTC)
This episode is coming up soon. I hope the Remaster Team realized the absurdity of the Gideonites duplicating the materials and appearances of an entire starship on a crowded planet, and instead obtained holodeck technology before allowing the Federation to send a representative.

The title[edit]

Is there any Biblical reference in the title? (talk) 16:31, 7 May 2012 (UTC)
