  • A young man copes with his special mental powers on board the Enterprise.

    This is the first of many episodes of Star Trek with the theme that absolute power corrupts absolutely. It's not a bad hour of television, although it is an early episode in the series before Star Trek found its rhythm.

    The title character is well played and interesting to watch. The writing is fine, and the episode moves along at a good clip with all the acts well defined. I think the episode just misses the joy and drama that would be present in later episodes. The truth is Charlie X is a very mundane Star Trek episode - a basic episode that wouldn't make a top ten or bottom ten list for the series.
