  • Black wigs vs. blond wigs, which is sillier?

    I have always held a special admiration for this one because it was my late father's favorite episode. I think the script is quite strong and the scene where Kirk is explaining to McCoy about the balance of power is really powerful. I must say Krell was probably the most sublime Klingon characters I've ever seen. He wasn't very nasty, was he? A Klingon putting his arm around someone and saying "A way to shoot farther and straiter."? I admire the way they left you feeling at the end of the show. That desolate music along with Kirk's words. "We're very tired Mr. Spock. Beam us up home."
