review by
Mike Haberfelner

The Enterprise runs across an extremely advanced spaceship that won't answer to any of their hailing though - and then someone teleports aboard, an attractive woman in a skimpy outfit, Kara (Marj Dusay), who knocks out the whole crew with the flick of a hand, steals Spock's (Leonard Nimoy) brain, and is off. The Enterprise follow the trail of her spaceship though and encounter a planet in its ice age that's apparently inhabitated by tribes of men who have hardly developed onwards from the stone age yet and who have no idea what women even are. But Kirk (William Shatner) and his landing party, Dr. McCoy (DeForest Kelley), Scotty (James Doohan), and a remote controlled Spock, find their way to an underground city where the women rule and the man are kept in check via some belt that allows the women to hand out instant torture. Thing is, none of the women on this planet are smart enough to perform brain surgery on Spock, not even Kara, and they all claim they don't know where the brain is. But of course, Kirk  and company manage to track down the brain to the center of the underground city, and it seems the brain is actually controling the whole city from there. And the knowledge of lobotomy, like so much other knowledge, is stored in a helmet called "the Teacher", something McCoy makes good use of, restoring Spock to his former self. And the underground city? Well, without a brain it will soon start to crumble, but Kirk sells this as a positive, as it will drive the women to the surface again where they will reunite with the men and develop naturally ...


Now this sure is one of the campier episodes of Star Trek: Borrowing the concept of a divided society from H.G. Wells' Time Machine, Spock's Brain is quick to throw all of the book's brainier themes overboard for a romp about cute girls in skimpy outfits, unconvincing stone age men, and far-fetched science fiction themes that really seem to be made up on the spot. And some of the dialogue that tries to make sense of it all is simply hilarious. Now none of the cast was too happy about this episode, and frankly, it's not one of the better ones - but it's tons of fun all the same.
