Default Star Trek TOS

If you heard that the Enterprise (Kirk's Enterprise, from TOS) used a probe to detect the conditions on a planet, wouldn't you think that kinda odd and "out of character" for the show?

They use their sensors, only, to detect world conditions, while orbiting, yes?

I don't know how many times I've seen Catspaw, but I'm watching it right now. And, just as Spock, McCoy, and the Captain beam down to the planet, Kirk mentions that the probe they used didn't report any fog-like conditions on the planet (and they were seeing fog).

I guess the "probe" he refers to could be a way of referring to the sensors (using the sensors to probe), but it doesn't sound that way to me. I think he's referring to a physical probe.

What he says, exactly, is, "Odd, our probe data didn't indicate fog."

What do you think? A--unseen on the show--probe was fired from the Enterprise to scan the planet--a sensor drone? Or do you think Kirk is referring to sensor probe data?
