  • A good but not great episode....

    "Space Seed" is an enjoyable episode but it has its problems (including a lame storyline regarding the ship's curvy Historian and a ridiculous idea of a 1990s Eugenics War) and just plain doesn't match up to other Star Trek episode heavyweights (way out of league with the likes of The City On The Edge Of Forever, Mirror Mirror, and The Trouble With Tribbles). Richardo Montalban is perfect in the unforgettable role of Khan. The character of Khan is the episode's real highlight but I am confused as to why the character is considered one of the Cpt. Kirk's ultimate enemies since the two hardly share any screen time together. In fact the best scene of the episode involves a showdown not between Khan & Kirk but between Khan & Dr. McCoy. "Space Seed" is not as good an episode of Star Trek as everyone seems to think it is - obviously hyped up because of the popularity of the film Star Trek II: The Wrath Of Khan.
