  • After responding to a distress call, Captain Kirk is abducted and accelerated by a group of Scalosians, humanoid aliens that move faster than human sight or hearing can detect.

    This episode has a great sci fi premise; unfortunately, it's poorly executed. The idea of having different characters move at different speeds opens up some great possibilities for drama, mystery, and eeriness. And indeed, in the episode it's fun to see the foreground characters carrying out their conversations and actions at regular speed while the background characters slowly continue at their own speed, trying to figure out what's going on. But even upon first viewing the episode, it quickly becomes apparent that the writer, director, and actors have no clue how to handle the comparable speeds of the different characters; and the episode, as a result, doesn't make much sense. They should have saved this concept for the animated series.
