  • Mccoy, Spock, Kirk, an ex-lover of Mccoy's, and a alien that can change forms and needs salt are a deadly combination find out why in this episode.

    I really liked this episode. When Bones, Spock, and Kirk beam down to a planet to talk with the scientist. They find him and his wife Nancy. Nancy is seen by everyone as something different. Nancy was seen as a old women to Kirk. The same to Bones as the last time he had seen her. She was seen as a young women to the crew member. We find out when they beam to ship that the creature posing as Nancy can take the form of anything, from a crewman to a horrible monster. We find out in all truth that Nancy in reality is not alive. The monster attacks the Captain and Spock and McCoy is forced to kill it. We find out it has to have salt to survive. This was a very good episode and a very sad episode.
