  • Kirk pulls the plug on a planet’s orderly culture because he couldn’t score during one of their festivals

    There is no way this episode get a better than average rating folks. I can accept the love affair fans have with "Shore Leave" even though I strongly disagree, but this one is terribly draggy with this absorption issue terribly not making sense. I'm so tired of all the episodes where Kirk out thinks a computer. "The Changeling" was reaching a bit, but this one was downright awful. The only thing I got out of it was at some loud parties that I go to, I'll scream out "Festival, festival, festival!" Of course no one knows the reference, but who cares.
