  • Kirk appears to become obsessed when he encounters a gaseous creature taht feeds on human blood cells.

    This is a solid, if forgettable, Star Trek offering: it leads you into believing it's another "Moby Dick" homage, like "The Doomsday Machine" but then becomes something more. I particular like how it explores the emotions involved with making a costly mistake – especially for a perfectionist like Captain Kirk. The episode does have some silliness: a number of redshirts die, and no one seems too shaken up; possibly because at least one of them will be back at his post in a future episode. And Spock, most illogically, attempts to stop the gaseous creature from entering a room by trying to cover a grate with his hands. Let's just say it's a "WTF" moment, and I'm not referring to the Wisconsin Tourism Foundation.
