Just before being drugged and forced off the
USS to Enterprise Delta Vega in 2265, Gary Mitchell – experiencing aftereffects from a disastrous encounter with the galactic barrier – threatened that he would soon squash the Enterprise's crew "like insects." Once Mitchell was imprisoned on Delta Vega, James T. Kirk reminded him of the insect analogy but Mitchell excused his behavior by claiming that he had been drugged at the time. ( : " TOS ")
