Trivia

This is the first time that Eddie Paskey has dialogue in Star Trek. Originally, Lt. Ryan was to have said more lines, but not having any other acting job than being an extra, Paskey was so nervous that a few of his lines had to be said by Spock instead. See more »

A nicely done episode that is based on a virus that is brought on board the ship by an away team. They have been on a planet where several people have died due to mysterious circumstances. It is transferred through simple touch. This virus has as its symptoms, the display of irrational behavior, founded in the inner mind of the crew members. Each crew member begins to show emotions held deep inside them. This is a theme that will be used many times. We also are exposed to the foundational makeup of each of the major crew members. Spock, for one, shows emotion (remember that the Vulcans were once an emotional people who repressed it to become more efficient and calculating). This is the first episode where the crew members begin to actually interact. Relationships are forged. It is the first episode where a crew member must fly in the face of an epidemic, a threat from within. Many are to follow. The acting is better and the story is creative and challenging. Fear is the issue here.
