Good episode. This starts off with Kirk trying to communicate with a vessel and they attempt to flee him and wind up in an asteroid belt. Kirk uses his ships power to create a protective barrier around their ship which causes him to overload his own energy crystals. Kirk manages to beam all the crew aboard before their ship is destroyed. The crew consists of a man named Harry Mudd who seems to be a man who sells women to men on lonely planets. He has with him 3 very attractive girls. But the catch is that they really are ugly but Mudd has some illegal drugs which enhances their beauty. Kirk and the Enterprise stop by a mining planet to get new crystals and Mudd introduces his women to the 3 miners. In the end one of Mudds women takes what she believes to be one of the illegal pills but really is just a placebo and still turns attractive. The 3 women stay with the miners and Harry Mudd goes with Kirk to attend trial on the charge of ignoring a communication from a starship.
