Comments: Though the logic of the episode cannot hold up under close scrutiny, “Miri” turns out to be– Blah, blah, blah. Don’t listen to a grup. Watch, watch, watch “Miri” or bonk-bonk on the head! This isn’t a foolie!
- Taking place on “another Earth,” the planetary portions of this episode were shot on the Desilu backlot–which also doubled as Mayberry on The Andy Griffith Show.
- Several of the Onlies were played by the children of Star Trek cast and crew members, including those of William Shatner, Grace Lee Whitney, and Gene Roddenberry.
