  • Spock must deal with his parents when the Enterprise escorts a group of ambassadors, including Spock's father, to a conference on the planet Babel.

    Star Trek scores again with its second Vulcan episode of the season. This time the writers focus on Spock's relationship with his parents. The fact that Spock is half human is a great source of drama for many Star Trek episodes, with the fans of Trek able to identify with Spock's internal battle between logic and emotion. This episode ups the ante, adding Spock's Vulcan father to serve as a literal voice of logic and Spock's human mother to serve as a voice for emotion and then putting Spock in the middle with the fate of the Enterprise in the balance. The producers tracked in music tracked from "Amok Time", but the music fits the episode so well you'd swear it was one of Trek's best original scores.
