In the first draft script of "Where No Man Has Gone Before", Vega was instead referred to as the location where Dr. Dehner had joined the Enterprise crew. The change to "the Aldebaron colony" was made by the time the final draft of the script was submitted. The name is very similar to Aldebaran. The spelling "Aldebaron" was, however, used in the personnel filemedical records shown on Enterpriseviewscreens and in the script. The spelling was also used in "Past Tense, Part I", for Aldebaron III.
