Original Star Trek Episode Copied This a Few Years Later
20 November 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The basic premise of this is that the character of Jack the Ripper transcends decades and reappears regularly. A man comes to the police and says he can predict when the Ripper will strike again. Much of the episode involves trying to convince the police that such a character exists. Of course, we. the viewers, know that this guy has credibility and is really on the mark. One of the detriments is that their dragnet that is set up is covering so much territory that, even with a warning, catching a solitary figure would seem unlikely. The lack of faith on the part of the police helps lead to the deaths of a couple more women. One of the common themes in the original Star Trek is the existence of immutable evil. It moves from eon to eon. Jack the Ripper is one of the figures mentioned. The conclusion to this can be seen a mile away, but it is still worth one's time to watch (it's also one of the few episodes I remember from my childhood).
