Storyline

After stopping a vessel in space, Kirk and the crew find a very odd captain with a very strange cargo. The captain of the vessel is Harcourt Fenton Mudd - known as Harry to his friends - and the cargo are three lovely women he is transporting as brides for lonely men on distant planets. Kirk has a major problem: while trying to rescue Mudd and his women from his disintegrating ship, the Enterprise's lithium crystals used to power the engines were destroyed. They travel to a nearby mining colony where Mudd sets about to arrange marriages for the women, interfering with Kirk's plan to buy the crystals. All the time, the ship's orbit is deteriorating and risks burning up in the atmosphere. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

Lt. Uhura wears a gold "command" uniform instead of her usual red uniform. Nichelle Nichols only wore this outfit in her first two appearances. These were the first two episodes produced after the second pilot; namely Star Trek: The Corbomite Maneuver (1966) and this one. See more »

Towards the end of Mudd's hearing, in a conversation with the women, he addresses Ruth (Maggie Thrett) as "Maggie". See more »

Pretty good, but NOT nearly as good as I, MUDD
5 December 2006 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

I am thrilled that they made this average episode because without it they probably never would have made the wonderful follow-up episode, I, MUDD--one of the very best Star Trek episodes ever made.

Harry Mudd is the commander of a craft that is ordered to stop and be boarded. Instead, he over-taxes the engines and he and his "cargo" are nearly killed. The cargo turns out to be three very ordinary-looking women who are supposed to be über-sexy (you can tell because of the sexy jazz riffs that follow them as they slink about the ship).

The episode is pretty good because Roger Carmel was wonderful as Harry Mudd--he was funny and sleazy and just a lot of fun to watch. Aside from his performance, though, the rest of it all just seemed ordinary. No magic--just an ordinary show with nothing to especially recommend it.
