Storyline

When an android takes control of the Enterprise, Kirk and his crew spend four days traveling at warp speed to an uncharted planet. When they beam down they find none other that Harry Mudd, the apparent ruler of the planet made up entirely of androids. It turns out there is one major problem with Harry's idyllic existence: the androids who serve him hand and foot simply won't allow him to leave. Kirk and Spock devise a way to disable the androids but have their own special plans for Harry. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

According to Walter Koenig, NBC considered making a Harry Mudd spin-off show after the success of "I, Mudd." They assigned Gene Roddenberry to develop the idea, but being busy with Star Trek and other projects, he didn't have time for it, and the series was never conceived. See more »

Goofs

It is never explained how Norman got posted aboard the ship to begin with. The ship's personnel officer (seen in Star Trek: Court Martial) would presumably have to verify his orders and background with Starfleet Command. See more »

Quotes

Alice #1 through 250: Why does she strike him?
Captain Kirk: She likes him.

A Cute Episode but Pretty Ridiculous
29 April 2014 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

I didn't care much for the first Mudd movie. In this one, the master swindler has escaped prosecution and landed in the lap of a planet run by computers (sound familiar?). He is treated like royalty because the robots want to study him. Unfortunately, they want some better subjects to explore and Harry hands over the Enterprise and its crew. Harry has been allowed to create robots as he wishes, and he produces five hundred slender, sixties looking women, with flashy clothes and big haircuts. There are also well built young men who look like personal trainers at a health club. They are all humorless and cater to everyone's needs. The only thing they cannot have is passage back to the ship. Their ultimate goal is to stock the Enterprise with these androids and go through space, showing everyone that robots are superior to humans. Mudd thinks he is going to go with them and the Starfleet crew has to stay. But they come to realize that Mudd is flawed terribly, and they never had any intention of allowing him to leave. Now he must ally himself with Kirk and the gang. What makes this so much fun is the idiotic (yet charming) way they attempt to thwart the androids. One mistake Harry makes is creating an android version of his nagging wife. He starts her up and she nags him. He then tells her to shut up, which is therapeutic. We find out later that this was a mistake. Of course, once again the crew is forced to outsmart a master computer. This will not be the last time.
