  • The Enterprise is ensnared by the Greek god Apollo, who has decided that the time has come for mankind to worship him again.

    This episode was ahead of its time in a way. One year after it first aired (in 1967), the book "Chariots of the Gods?"explored the same theme (the idea that aliens visited the ancient civilizations of earth) and the idea became a pop culture phenomenon. That said, the idea isn't explored too well in this Star Trek episode which suffers from a poor script. Michael Forest, who plays Apollo, and Leslie Parrish, who plays Carolyn are both great, and Fred Steiner's score is good, too. But while the episode has its moments (the ending is particularly poignant), as a whole there's something clearly lacking with the story. It adds up to a rather forgettable installment of Trek.
