Factoid :
Ambergis is a waxy substance secreted by whale intestines. It is used in the perfume industry, where it helps perfumes retain their scent for longer.

My year for this episode is estimated from the Stardate; it is one of a group of TAS episodes set between 'For the World is Hollow and I Have Touched the Sky' and 'Is There in Truth no Beauty?'


While visiting the planet Argo, Kirk and Spock are altered to breathe water.
