  • Scott is the prime suspect in the savage murder of three women.

    Wolf in the Fold is an underrated episode of Star Trek. Is Scott a murderer? Of course not, but the episode cleverly keeps you guessing. I'm anti-spoiler, so you gotta watch to see whodunit. The story line consists of three parts, each subsequently adding to the drama & suspense: three murders in which Scott is seemingly the only viable suspect, a kindofa faux trial aboard the Enterprise where the true killer is revealed, and lastly, the resulting danger when the killer runs amok in an attempt to overtake the ship and everyone aboard. I especially liked the trial, because you get to see Kirk, Spock and McCoy sift through the evidence and unmask the identity of the killer, which is a nice surprise in itself. Classic Star Trek cheese.
