Lou Antonio ...


While on a mission of mercy, the Enterprise comes across a shuttle craft stolen from Starbase 4. Its occupant is Lokai, a humanoid who is exactly half black and half white. Soon his pursuer, Commissioner Bele, arrives on board demanding that Lokai be turned over to him for transport to their home planet where Lokai has been convicted as a terrorist. Both men have extraordinary powers and it turns out that the pursuit has lasted 50,000 years. Their hatred of one another is racially based and, despite attempts by Kirk and others, they are not prepared to reconcile. The pursuit ends on their home planet where they learn the fate of their races. Written by garykmcd

Let's not get too carried away with the sublimity of the message in this episode. It's awfully cartoonish and clownish etc.. Think about it. They used Frank Gorshin to get this message across. Gorshin, apart from being one of the best impressionists ever, has probably never spent a serious minute in his entire life. He was The Riddler in the old Batman TV Series - and practically played himself to do it! He's always a gas. Always up to some gag. This had to have been at least partially tongue in cheek, this episode. I can hardly look at Gorshin without smiling ... wondering where the gag is going to show up next. Everything about both the half colored characters was played over the top by both actors. Gorshin just made the other guy look more serious because he's so impossibly over the top all the time anyway! Of course everyone else in the episode played it very straight. Not sure why. There could be many possible explanations. But choosing Frank Gorshin for getting a serious social statement across to people just can't be 100% for real. That guy can't not be (way) the top - in anything. Watch it again. Watch Gorshin. He's crazy, man! It just comes through the screen.
