Giving this one a 5. Favorite line: "Captain, I was convinced in the same manner you were.... the good doctor's hypo." I loved how all the Vians said all three showed willingness to sacrifice themselves, but Spock didn't get much of a chance to exhibit it, as McCoy knocked him out. Great job from Kelley. Very enjoyable episode. Slight downside that the Vians needed a kick in their complacency to do something.


EDIT: I forgot mention that for what little there was, Sulu and Scotty had a great exchange as well.

A really good job done with a limited budget. This was one of those episodes where they ran out of money and were really limited as to what they could shoot. The superb acting is what carries this episode, especially by Kelley.

I gave it a 2. The entire a ep, a story about a so sensitive she's mute alien girl that must prove her worth to save her planet is boring. The Vians that conduct the experiment are second rate Talosians and this ep was obviously filmed on a black background soundstage in order to save money.
