  • Lt. Romaine, who Scotty has fallen for, seems to become possessed by the mysterious lights of Zetar.

    As far as Star Trek "horror" episodes go, this one didn't turn out too badly – though it can still be a little dreary. (It's hard to believe that Shari Lewis and her husband wrote this one – perhaps with help from Lamb Chop as well.) Jan Shutan guest stars as Lieutenant Mira Romaine, and she's fine, though the series could have done better (such as casting Shari Lewis, which is what she had in mind when she wrote the thing.) The real gem of a performance here belongs to Scotty, who looks upon the girl with the love struck eyes he usually reserves for only the Enterprise engines. Director Herb Kenwith does a capable job directing his only Star Trek episode. Unfortunately, most of the episode lacks anything worth getting excited about, due in part to the fact that we really don't care what happens to Mira, and the regulars aren't really put in jeopardy.
