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.

Trivia

The three witches seen towards the start of the episode were intended to be shown as floating severed heads, hence the reaction from the landing party at their appearance. The characters wore black turtlenecks against a black backdrop, with light shining directly up into the face. Unfortunately, the effect did not work and the turtlenecks worn by the actors can clearly be seen. Even in the remastered version of the episode, this oversight is still present. See more »

Goofs

The black cat is a short hair in some shots and a long hair in others. This is part of the shape shifter's abilities. See more »

Quotes

DeSalle: [of the force field around the ship] Maybe we can't break it. But I'll bet you credits to navy beans we can put a dent in it.

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.
