  • This is the worst episode of Star Trek by a long shot. This episode is so bad that it makes Spock's Brain look like a masterpiece.

    The episode is poorly written and contains little substance. Like many of the third season episodes, it follows the trend of reaching out to a new audience. However, beaming aboard a group of drugged up hippies was hardly a worthy plot. This episode lacks the charm that we Star Trek fans adore so much. Additionally Spock's sympathy does not seem natural for the situation. It comes across as being forced, as if to appeal to a teenage audience that just got home from Woodstock. I really don't have much else to say for this despicable episode. It should be viewed with extreme caution, because it has been known to suck the appreciation right out of Star Trek fans.
