review by
Mike Haberfelner

The Enterprise explore a planet that has been totally destroyed by a big war hundreds of thousands years ago, but to everyone's surprise, there were (and still are) three survivors, Sargon, his wife Thalassa and Sargon's former enemy Henoch, who are the last of their race and pure energy now. But they ask the Enterprise to temporarily take over the bodies of Kirk (William Shatner), Spock (Leonard Nimoy) and attractive guest scientist Dr. Ann Mulhall (Diana Muldaur) to build themselves androids to walk among the living again, teach them and let them profit from the accomplishments they have made before destroying themselves in a war to end all wars. Against the objections of Dr. McCoy (DeForest Kelley), Kirk, Spock and Dr. Mulhall agree, and of course, there are dangers, as the hosts' bodies tend to reject their new operators, so have to be under constant medical supervision and given shots every few hours. Fortunately though, Henoch, who inhabits Spock's body, is quick in producing these shots. There's a problem though, while Sargon and Thalassa's motives are noble, Henoch wants to stay in Spock rather than be transferred to a android, so he gives Sargon, in Kirk's body, shots that eventually kill him while trying to win Thalassa over to his side. For a while, it seems to work even, but then Sargon, who has somehow escaped Kirk's body before he died, appeals to Thalassa's conscience, and they devise a plan to save Kirk (as Kirk) and drive Henoch out of Spock's body, even if they lose their own lives in the process ...


Storywise, Return to Tomorrow is simplistic and muddled at the same time, and not all of it makes sense, even when suspending one's disbelief. But seeing Shatner overacting it as only Shatner can and Leonard Nimoy playing against type once possessed by Henoch does make up for many of the narrative shortcomings, making this not a very good but a fun episode after all.
