  • The Enterprise encounters a space amoeba cutting a destructive swath through the universe.

    8.0
    This is an unusual Star Trek episode, because there's no planet of the week and no guest stars. The action happens aboard the Enterprise and its shuttlecraft and the drama centers around Kirk, Spock, and McCoy. (In fact, this is one of the defining episodes in the Kirk/Spock/McCoy relationship.) What makes the show great is a magnificent script, along with incredible performances by Leonard Nimoy and DeForest Kelly and their chemistry together. On the down side, the episode is basically a rehash of "The Doomsday Machine" from earlier in the season. (In fact, much of the music here comes from that episode.) Still, for a budget saving episode, it's quite fun.
