    This is almost universally accepted as the greatest episode of the original series and is sometimes cited as the best installment of any Star Trek series. Based on a story by Harlan Ellison with a tight script by Gene Coon, the episode has a cinematic quality that gives it a feature film sort of feel. Joan Collins gives the greatest performance of any of the "Star Trek babes" to guest star on the original series while William Shatner gives, perhaps, his best performance ever. This episode has it all: airtight story, great acting, great special effects, and a more universal appeal than most Star Trek episodes. It's certainly a high point for Trek in the 60s.
