  • The Enterprise escorts a spoiled alien princess to her wedding to seal an interplanetary alliance, but she becomes attracted to Kirk.

    6.0
    The episode title is a play on "Helen of Troy", and the episode is Star Trek's homage to "Taming of the Shrew". It is the only Star Trek episode that was written and directed by the same person (John Meredyth Lucas). Guest star France Nuyen plays the part of the spoiled Princess well, and she creates a nice arc with the character. Shatner does his normal Jim Kirk thing, we're he treats the woman like she's six, and she somehow falls in love with our charming Captain. All in all, the episode is what it is, neither memorable nor dismal. It's probably most notable for introducing the Klingon Battle Cruiser, the prototypical Klingon ship that now belongs to the Smithsonian Institution.
