    The premise of this episode has aliens to take over the bodies of three Enterprise crewmembers. Two of them are Kirk and Spock, which allows William Shatner and especially Leonard Nimoy to flex their acting muscles. The other is the young pretty Dr. Ann Mulhall, played by guest star Diana Muldaur; because of the Mulhall's alien possession, Muldaur gets to play two different characters as well. All three are superb and sell the presence of the aliens, with Muldaur being one of the best female guest stars the original Trek ever cast. The score for the episode, by George Duning (Star Trek's "sensitive" composer who also did Metamorphosis), is fantastic, too. Sometimes the story drags a bit while the cat and mouse game between the aliens develops, but overall it's a pretty good episode.
