  • The Enterprise finds itself in the midst of a chase between two aliens who hate each other's race.

    Star Trek tackles racism head on in this episode; but with a poor story and a lack of budget, the result is nothing special. (The most laughable budget saver is Bele's ship, which he must have bought from Wonder Woman. It's invisible.) Impressionist, actor, and comedian Frank Gorshin guest stars, but he's not given anything too interesting to do and his appearance is most memorable for his makeup: the half black and half white faces of his character and his arch enemy are great, both visually and thematically for the way they lay bare the stupidity of prejudice. The episode also has a gem of a scene involving the self destruct of the Enterprise; it's not only breathtaking in its own right, it sets up a payoff scene in the Star Trek movies! Unfortunately, the rest of the episode isn't nearly as good, and there are plot holes you could drive a ship through, be it visible or invisible.
