  • Harry Mudd rears his head again in his part as a rogue rascal. You know what's coming.

    This isn't a deep Star Trek episode or even an outstanding one, but it's a bit of a relief after a string of serious ones that can sometimes be a little much.

    It's a better episode than "Mudd's Women" and I found myself less annoyed with Mudd this time than the first time.

    The actors acting like identical androids are interesting to watch since you can tell they aren't identical and some are shorter, taller, thinner, fatter. It's part of the fun in an episode that is light and silly.

    The weird behavior they use to confuse the androids is slightly amusing. Overall it's an ok episode to watch, though probably not a prime candidate for rewatching.

    The Uhura play at betrayal before the audience is let in on it is a nice touch.

    Predictable, but an enjoyable break in a way.
