Storyline

When Kirk and Sulu vanish into thin air from the bridge of the Enterprise, Spock sends a landing party to the planet below to locate them. What they find is an 18th century castle and a rather foppish man, Trelane, who seems to know a great deal about the Earth - even if it is the wrong time period. If truth be told, Trelane acts like a spoiled little boy and it's obvious Kirk and the others have become his playthings. They soon realize that if they are to overcome Trelane and free themselves, they must locate and destroy his power source. Written by garykmcd

Goofs

Just after Trelane disappears, his parents tell Kirk that they would maintain the necessary atmospheric conditions while he returned to his ship. Why would they not have just teleported him back to the Enterprise? See more »

Quotes

Captain James T. Kirk: How were our scanners able to penetrate that radiation field?
Mr. Spock: They didn't, Captain. Not clearly. We merely beamed up all life forms in a given area.
Dr. McCoy: Which means Trelane is not a life form as we know it or he'd be beaming through now.

Star Trek

The Squire Of Gothos

A cultural hub and by far one of the most loved and respected tale, Star Trek is created by Gene Roddenberry who wrote this brilliant concept, ahead of its time and is probably why it still doesn't fail to entertain us after these many years. It was written "for the future" in many aspects as it even though is smarter, wiser and powerful it still seeks for emotion and the force that binds it all. The relation between Spock and Kirk; despite of its premise, is the most human thing in this majestic tale where the adventures are endless. Encountering this original series, at this stage makes the execution look petty and a bit loose (the small technical aspects can be negotiated) but the writing is smart, gripping and hence completely overpowers it.

Unlike any other hit series, it only has 3 seasons so luckily it means that they will be covering up all their ideas within it until they are satisfied. As it often happens, the first season is always promising and has potential (or else it won't lift up for further more seasons) in it and is utilized with fine detailed work like focusing on different new breeds and characters bonding through this journey.

The Squire OF Gothos had an interesting concept and it keeps you on edge of the seat from the first and the plot thickens on the second one where the skills are displayed to its peak but unfortunately the last act is quite dull and disappointing resulting it into a mundane episode.
