    The Naked Time is one of the best early Star Trek episodes. It's plot simultaneously lets the actors stretch themselves with out-of-character moments while also allowing the audience to learn about the hidden thoughts and desires of the characters, which they usually don't show. The episode boasts an original musical score which is great and has bits used in many other later episodes.

    Bruce Hyde stars as Riley. The actor and character appear in only two episodes, but his performance as Riley in this one is so memorable, he's become rather beloved by the fans.

    As for flaws, the episode does move along a bit slowly; and it's an early episode that doesn't have the sense of fun the series would later develop. But for its time, it's a great piece of work.
