review by
Mike Haberfelner

The Enterprise follow a distress call to an uncharted planet, and once Captain Kirk (William Shatner) and company beam down, the redshirts are quickly dealt with by Rojan (Warren Stevens) and his small gang, and they are quick to take over the Enterprise as well - and their superior technology leaves Kirk no alternative than to stand back and watch, as the aliens have  weapons that can paralyze or reduce someone to their essence (but also get them back to normal again), and though small in numbers, Rojan and company have no problems defeating the crew of the ship - and turning them all into minerals containing their essence. All but Kirk, Spock (Leonard Nimoy), McCoy (DeForest Kelley) and Scotty (James Doohan), naturally, because someone has to save the day. Now Rojan and company aren't all evil, they're explorers from Andromeda who have been on the look-out for a planet to colonize, and now want to get back home to report finding one - and they just need to borrow the Enterprise to make their way back home. Thing is, travel to Andromeda takes 300 years, even at Warp 11, so that stretches "just borrowing" a little. Now of course, Kirk and company want their ship back, and after using force and failing, they try to find out more about Rojan and friends, and learn they are not humanoids as such, but aliens in human "shells", and they haven't yet found out the perks of being a woman (and also human emotions) - so Scotty gets one of them (Robert Fortier) dead drunk, McCoy gives one of them (Stewart Moss) adrenaline shots to make him rebel against Rojan, Kirk of course picks the sexy woman (Barbara Bouchet) of Rojan's entourage to seduce her, and Spock works on Rojan's jealousy, with pretty awesome results. And once the usurpers have found out it's fun to be human, they give command back to Kirk and ask to be shipped back to the planet they were found at to live on as humans ...


Now story-wise, this episode is of course slightly silly, with a solution that's a bit of an anti-climax, but it scores high in the camp department, with especially William Shatner and James Doohan allowed to ham it up, throwing them both into signature situations. Basically, this is one of the more comedic episodes of Star Trek - and a fun one at that.
