  • Kirk, Spock, and McCoy are captured by a race of female aliens.

    5.0
    (That recap sounds like one of Kirk's fantasies, doesn't it?) This is a forgettable episode based on the German legend of Lorelei (in which the spirit of a woman distracts sailors causing them to become shipwrecked.) Actually, the episode comes across more like the bastard son of "Spock's Brain" and "The Deadly Years", and that's not really a good thing. Still, it could be worse, and it's fun to see the women take charge for once; although having only two female voice actors (Nichelle Nichols and Majel Barrett) for the entire series doesn't help when moments like these arrive. Thumbs in the middle.
