Storyline

In answering a medical emergency at an archaeological expedition, Kirk confronts the deep hatred of an old love, Janice Lester, who supposedly lies severely ill from celebium radiation. In payment for jilting her back at Starfleet Academy, Dr. Lester arranges for an alien machine to swap her consciousness with that of the captain and takes command of the Enterprise. Once aboard, Kirk (in Lester's body) tries to convince Spock that he is trapped in her body. As a result, Janice (in Kirk's body) conducts a court-marshal with the intent of executing Spock and Kirk (in Janice's body), and later McCoy and Scott, to keep her secret. The crew realize something is seriously wrong with their captain and, not wishing to incur an illegal death-penalty themselves, begin a passive resistance. Written by JW Kearse

Trivia

Though her voice is muffled, Dr. Lester protests to Dr. Coleman, "Go to Hell!" a rare case of a "swear" sneaking past the network censors. See more »

Goofs

After Dr. Lester, in Kirk's body, first arrives on the bridge and starts issuing orders, a wide shot of the bridge and viewing screen clearly shows a blond crewman (stock footage featuring Bill Blackburn) other than Chekov at the navigator station. At the tail end of this shot, Lester/Kirk specifically addresses his order to Chekov. In the very next shot Chekov is suddenly at the navigator station to hear the rest of Lester/Kirk's order.

Quotes

Mr. Spock: I have a few questions to ask her.
Lt. Galloway: Did the captain order it, sir?
Mr. Spock: Why should he? They are my questions, therefore I am ordering it, Lieutenant.

The Women's Movement
11 May 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

What a fizzle at the end. Not a terrible episode, but kind of a gratuitous effort to address women's issues, budding in the sixties. This is a chance for Shatner to play a part he never pictured, that of a woman. Actually, he does a very good job. He appears to have studied female mannerisms and adapted them well, and I believe he does it in a respectful way. This could have deteriorated into some silly comedic episode that occasionally diminished the dignity of the series. Of course, it wouldn't have mattered as the death knell had already been delivered. If there is a criticism, it takes a woman who is striking out against the glass ceiling, being portrayed as a you know what in men's clothing. For me, this is quite a forgettable episode. It goes out, not with a bang but a whimper.
