review by
Mike Haberfelner

Beaming down to a Federation colony, Captain Kirk (William Shatner) and his landing party - Spock (Leonard Nimoy), Doc McCoy (DeForest Kelley), Scotty (James Doohan), Chekov (Walter Koenig) and Lt. Galway (Beverly Washburn) - find the colonists, who should be in their 20s, all terribly old or already dead from old age. Back on the Enterprise, Kirk and friends try to find out what had happened, when they all start to age at a rather alarming age - about 30 years a day -, which very logically will lead to their deaths before the end of the week. Only Chekov seems to be unaffected ...

Of all the members of the landing party it has hit Lt. Galway the strongest, as she dies of old age in a day or two, but what's really alarming is that Kirk suffers from dementia, which means he can't remember commands he has given anymore, confuses facts, and hides everything behind a facade of arrogance - so much so that their "guest" on the ship Commodore Stocker (Charles Drake) has him removed from command, and when Spock as First Officer refuses to step in as he's afflicted by the same condition as Kirk, albeit to a weaker extent, Stocker takes up command himself - and before you know it flies the Enterprise into a Romulan ambush.

Meanwhile, McCoy and Dr. Wallace (Sarah Marshall), who just happens to be an old flame of Kirk, have found out what made Chekov immune, an adenaline rush when he found a dead body down on the planet, so he infuses Kirk with some adrenaline - and just in time, too, as he returns to the bridge his young self as the Romulans move in for the kill, but has a trick up his sleeve to save his ship and crew to live another day ...


Now the plot of this episode is slightly on the silly side (and not necessarily the good kind of silly), but it's really an episode for Star Trek fans, as the leads all really seem to be in their element, turning in solid and very humourous performances as their aging selves (helped by rather ok makeup jobs for sure). There's really little this episode has to offer beyond that, and especially the subplot about a past relationship between Kirk and Dr. Wallace leads to nowhere and is little more than fluff, but for fans (like me) that's already enough.
