Did You Know?

John D.F. Black came up with Sulu's "berserk" scenes without specifying the weapon to be used. Unable to decide between a samurai sword or a fencing foil, he left the choice to George Takei, who picked the latter with the thought that by the 23rd century Humanity would have developed to a point where, in terms of culture, people have moved beyond simply adhering to ways of their ethnic background.See more »
Plot holes: After it becomes clear that Riley is infected, Spock orders him to report to Sickbay and then calls security and tells them to "see to it that he arrives". Although Riley does go to Sickbay, he doesn't stay there and ends up taking over Engineering. Security apparently never follows up on Spock's order. If they had, they would have been there to stop Riley before he could get to Engineering.See more »
Sulu:Don't know if it's this planet or what happened with Joe... I'm sweating like a bridegroom.
Riley:Yeah, me too.

Id Impulses, 24 April 2014
Author: Hitchcoc from United States

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.
