Lurch Goes Bersurch!
25 April 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a pretty good episode. Nurse Chapel (Majel Barrett, the one time Mrs. Gene Roddenberry) is really a peripheral character in most episodes. Her she has a chance to star. The one consistent factor here is that Christine really loves Spock. It shows up in succeeding episodes and, of course, it's a hopeless dream for her. In this she has joined an away team to a planet where a former lover of hers has been for over five years. When she gets there, all hell breaks loose. First of all, the guy has two of Kirk's crew killed by the gruesome Ted Cassidy, formerly of "The Addams Family." It turns out that the boyfriend has been working on building a herd of androids to take over the universe. It has one of the great scenes where Kirk, realizing he is about to be cloned, repeats a series of words over and over, telling Spock, "I'm tired of your half-breed interference!" What happens depends on the perceptions of the crew and an understanding of who is who. It has a sad conclusion for all concerned but particular for Nurse Chapel. It's a pretty tight little episode with some especially neat settings.
