Storyline

When Kirk and his landing party arrive on the planet below, they are met by eerie mists, a dark castle, witches, zombies and a black cat. They soon learn that they are under the influence of a wizard, Korob, who tries to bend them to his will. They also soon learn that the black cat they saw is more than she appears and is in fact a powerful witch in her right. It is left to Kirk and Spock to find a means to escape their grasp.

Did You Know?

Trivia

James Doohan (Scotty) lost his right middle finger during World War II. Most of his scenes are shot to hide it; however, it is very noticeable here. When Scotty is holding a phaser pistol on Kirk and Spock, only two fingers are holding the butt of the phaser. See more »

Goofs

When Kirk first sees Sulu and Scott in the dungeon, Sulu walks ahead of Scott. Camera cuts to Kirk but when it cuts back a moment later, Sulu is behind Scott. See more »

Quotes

Captain James T. Kirk: What now? You wave your magic wand and destroy my mind, too?
Sylvia: There's no real damage to the mind, Captain. Simply a drain of knowledge and will.
Captain James T. Kirk: You don't call that damage?
Sylvia: Why should I?
Captain James T. Kirk: You'd know, if you had compassion. A woman should have compassion. But I forget you're not a woman.

A giant Halloween party
16 November 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

One of the weirdest and strangest Star Trek episodes occurs here where the Enterprise lands on some planet that looks like somebody's idea of a giant Halloween party. Of course it's anything but that.

What's causing all the problems are a pair of very powerful creatures played by Theo Marcuse and Antoinette Bower. Marcuse is first seen alone with a black cat, but the cat soon changes form and becomes Bower who looks and acts like a poor man's Joan Collins.

This particular episode I thought was inferior. All the more pity because the characters of Koreb and Sylvia that Marcuse and Bower play are quite engaging. But for the life of me at the end of the show when we see these two in their real form one cannot believe that they were quite able to accomplish all they did.
