When the Enterprise attempts to penetrate a space barrier, it is damaged and creates a potentially worse problem. Two crew members, including Kirk's best friend, gain psionic powers that are growing at a geometric rate. That leaves Captain Kirk with the difficult choice of either marooning them or killing before they get so powerful that they lose their humanity and become truly dangerous. Written by

On one of the occasions when Kirk and Mitchell are discussing Mitchell's ESP powers (right before Spock and the rest of the crew enter the room), the shadow of a boom mic can be seen on the wall. See more »
Oh Boy! A spaceship, a cool captain, a pointed-eared alien from Vulcan, what else could a kid ask for? I remember sneaking in late at night to watch and marvel at Star Trek on an old black-and-white TV set, and I loved every minute of it. Those were the days, I guy was not afraid to be a guy. Don't tread on me or will blast you to smithereens with phasers, photon torpedoes and the whole shebang!
Today I can barely watch five minutes of Star Trek Next Generation, Deep Space Nine, Voyager and all those boring, politically-correct undernourished Star Trek clones. Man, these neo-liberal characters like Picard, Sisko, Ryker, Crusher, etc, etc, etc, are as lifeless as the surface of the Moon; talk about cardboard characters, bloodless, gutless, sissy and unimaginative representatives of the homo sapiens species!
OK, I agree the special effects are lame compared to today's standards (who cares?), I even agree that Shatner overacts sometimes (it is fun!). But no other Sci-Fi TV series had characters that are that likable and show such human warmth, camaraderie as Kirk, Spock, McCoy and Scotty.
WNMHGB is one of my favorite ST episodes. It has travel beyond our Galaxy, mutants with god-like powers, very good acting and directing. And a wonderful story, too! A story where a man faces a super mutant and wins using raw power and neurons. And only a guy like Kirk could do something like that!
Too bad these days are gone.
