  • Dr. Miranda Jones arrives with Ambassador Kolos, a Medusan, and senses someone plotting murder.

    Diana Muldaur, one of the better female guest stars in this series, makes her second Star Trek appearance – this time as Dr. Jones – and is once again fantastic. Unfortunately, while the script touches on some interesting issues, such as disabilities and the meaning of beauty, the overall story and execution are rather lacking. Captain Kirk tries to be tricky and seductive rather than use reason to get his way, Spock forgets to wear basic PPE, and the remainder of the Enterprise crew comes off looking foolish as well for not noticing. Meanwhile, the episode is shot like a B horror movie, insulting the audience, with poor editing choices. Still, the episode could be worse; it's just not one of the better Trek installments.
