Kirk and Spock have to baby sit Bem while they survey a new planet, but Bem causes more trouble than he is worth.


I didn't like this episode as much as I though I would have. The character Bem is interesting because he can split into several pieces, but he is also annoying. Besides the ability of being able to split into many body parts, he is a dull character that made no really memorable impression on me. The story wasn't that good either compared to other episodes of the series. Overall, I don't know if everyone would like this episode, it wouldn't be my top choice for must see episodes. But, there are some that like this episode. So, this is definitely left to personal taste.

I give it a 4.


Good episode written by the writer that wrote the classic 'Trouble With Tribbles'. :rolleyes:


They tried to do things that a live action series at the time effects wise could not not be done (Commander BEM's ability).
