How the Grinch Fooled Enterprise
1 April 2017 | by See all my reviews

I'm sorry. This is beyond stupid. Kirk and the Gang and an alien named Ben try to do research on a planet. Kirk relents when the alien keeps at him about going to the surface. Once there, he screws up everything they try to do. He looks like a Grinch in a space suit. He speaks a kind of baby talk. He has the ability to split himself into several pieces which allows him to escape from things. Just a poor excuse for an episode.
