Star Trek: The Galileo Seven (1967)
I was disappointed
At first I was looking forward to see "The Galileo Seven" because Spock had more important role than usually. I was hoping for some interesting character development, however my enthusiasm didn't last very long.
PLOT: A scientific team led by Spock crash-lands on a planet inhabited by primitive but very dangerous creatures.
MY OBJECTIONS: The members of the team questioned every Spock's order (they were very unprofessional). Most of their objections were about Spock's excessive use of logic but to me he didn't seem very logical in this episode.
For example, Spock refused to use deadly force against obviously hostile creatures. He also ordered a crew-member to stay outside the shuttle alone (unsurprisingly the crew-member was killed). After that Spock risked his own life to bring the dead body back to the shuttle even though he knew they couldn't take him on board because the shuttle would be too heavy to take off.
Finally the one logical decision he made (to ignite jettisoned fuel to draw Enterprise's attention) was regarded by everyone as illogical. I would certainly prefer to increase the chances to be found and saved than to pointlessly circle around the planet for few more minutes and die anyway.
