  • The Enterprise discovers a ship full of genetically engineered criminals.

    7.0
    This is, of course, famous for being the prequel to the second Star Trek feature film (often cited as the greatest Trek film of them all), with Ricardo Montalbán as Khan. The episode, introducing the evil superman, has a bit of a weak screenplay is nothing special as a result. While Montalbán gives a great performance (as does Madlyn Rhue), the original idea for the story – a Renaissance man from the past being out of place in the future – is buried amid the action. That said, it's not a clunker; it has some interesting sci fi concepts and enough twists and turns to keep the viewer engaged until the closing credits role.
