It's an interesting episode and concept, but the Vulcan logical side of me says if there is a parallel universe with evil counterparts to the whole crew, and some of the evil crew dies in the evil universe, then shouldn't the good counterparts die in the good universe? On that same line, shouldn't the evil Spock in the evil parallel universe be an emotional basket case compared to the logical good Spock in the normal universe? yet he is logical in both universes.

Still, Uhura looks pretty good in her cut off blouse for the 1960's standards of feminine pulchritude. She has amazingly good abs for being one of those softer, chubbier Marilyn Monroe body types of the ideal woman.
