Trivia

The budget-strapped show often made good use of the creativity of its prop staff in coming up with low-cost solutions to otherwise pricey items. Here, the "space suit" hoods worn by Spock and Tormolen on the planet's surface were fashioned from art deco 1960s-style shower curtains. See more »

Goofs

There seems to be no rhyme or reason to how the infection is spread. Sulu and Riley are infected from fighting with a fully-clothed Joe Tormolen, and Chapel by a calm Riley, but Uhura, despite being manhandled by a sweating, stripped-to-the-waist Sulu, is not infected. Similar paradoxes have been known to occur in the real world. See more »

Quotes

Uhura: [over the intercom] Entering planet's outer atmosphere, sir.
Scotty: Captain!
Capt. Kirk: What is it?
Scotty: He's turned the engines off. They're completely cold. It'll take 30 minutes to regenerate them.
Uhura: [over the intercom] Entering planet's outer atmosphere, sir. Ship's outer skin is beginning to heat, Captain. Orbit plot shows we have about 8 minutes left.
Capt. Kirk: Scotty!
Scotty: I can't change the law of physics! I've got to have 30 minutes!

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.
