Trek similarities:

1) The ship in Forbidden Planet is the United Planets Cruiser C-57D.

2) The ship's course is controlled by the Astrogator.

3) The ship's doctor has a major role in the crew's (especially the Captain's) well being.

4) The script of Forbidden Planet, like many TOS episodes, is based on Shakespeare.

5) The Captain gets the girl.
