Where did the grenade launcher come from?Edit

Ok wtf did Kirk get the grenade launcher and shoe box of grenades from? 196.46.71.251 23:18, 3 May 2008 (UTC)

Read the article and watch the episode. --OuroborosCobra talk 23:19, 3 May 2008 (UTC)

I was just watching it which is why I asked ... he's rolling around and ducking and then suddenly he conveniently has a mortar and opens a shoe box to reveal blue spheres instead of a pair of Manolos :P 196.46.71.251 01:19, 4 May 2008 (UTC)

He got it from the arsenal:
  • KIRK: "Can you remember the layout of this place? The arsenal?"
  • SPOCK: "About one hundred yards in that direction. But after an attack as thorough as this one..."
  • KIRK: "I'll risk it."
After this, he runs over toward its... I'm sure with the colonists already fighting the Gorn, the likelihood of the box being near or outside the door of the arsenal would be that much greater. --Alan 01:35, 4 May 2008 (UTC)

Nitpicking?Edit

Is it a little bit of nitpicking to state that the explosion resembled a photon torpedo (because they, if i recall correctly, reused the sound effect) and that there was no damage so the danger must have been from radiation (as they used an optical effect instead of pyrotechnics). To me these sound more like budgetary cutbacks, not something that should be taken as established facts. --Pseudohuman 23:49, 31 July 2008 (UTC)

Mortar or a grenade launcherEdit

Images removed.

It's NOT a grenade launcher, it's a mortar. THIS is a grenade launcher. Notice the grenade launcher breaks open to load.....mortars load from the top. below is a mortar.The preceding unsigned comment was added by Tugar (talk • contribs).

While that may be the case in the real-world, Kirk calls the weapon a grenade launcher in the episode dialogue, so that is what we call it in Memory Alpha. --Pseudohuman 10:23, March 15, 2012 (UTC)
See the background note. That information is shared there. -- sulfur 10:28, March 15, 2012 (UTC)
It could be that the definition of "grenade launcher" will change between now and Kirk's time, much as the definition of "torpedo" has changed between the American Civil War and now. A torpedo used to be what we would today call a mine. --31dot 19:58, March 15, 2012 (UTC)
