review by
Mike Haberfelner



The Enterprise is to host Medusan ambassador Kolos, which is quite a challenge, because while Medusans are utterly benign, they look so hideous that they would drive any human who sees one of them insane, and even Vulcans can only see them with a special visor. Now Kolos, who's kept in a box, is accompanied by two humans, blind telepath Dr. Jones (Diana Muldaur), who has been trained on Vulcan and who hopes to create a mindlink between herself and Kolos one day, and tech guru Marvick (David Frankham), who's actually in love with Dr. Jones, a love unrequitted, which he blames on Kolos. Thus he tries to kill Kolos - but of course to kill him means to look at him, which drives him mad and before you know it, he has steered the Enterprise outside the known universe, then collapsed and died. Now to return the Enterprise to the known universe it would need a mind link between Spock (Leonard Nimoy) and Kolos, something Dr. Jones would never permit, so Captain Kirk (William Shatner), intergalactic womanizer, invites her to a romantic dinner while Spock does the deed, and she finds out only too late, when the Enterprise is back on familiar soil. So out of jealousy she sees to it that at the end of the mind link looks at Kolos without his visor - and he's soon in a catatonic state, and the only one who can help him is of all people Dr. Jones - but she needs an earful from Captain Kirk to actually get the job done.

 

One of the more boring episodes of Star Trek, in part because its main alien is kept in a box throughout, and when it's supposed to be shown it's just some lame light effects. Meanwhile the actual story, of a weird love triangle, is rather static and dialogue-heavy, with too much of an emphasis put on over-explaining things, as well as pretty much ditching the science fiction angle for a tale of love and jealousy, and the episode takes itself very seriously at that. But what's worst, the whole thing isn't all that entertaining.
