Because of a teleporter failure, Captain Kirk (William Shatner) is beamed from a survey mission back aboard the starship Enterprise twice. And as it goes in these stories, one Kirk is solely his good characteristics, the other is the bad Kirk ... and the bad Kirk's first action (after getting a bottle of brandy from the medical supplies of course) is to try and rape Yeoman Rand (Grace Lee Whitney), which in turn puts the good Kirk on the spot, since soon enough even his closest crewmembers - Spock (Leonard nimoy) and McCoy (DeForest Kelley) suspect him of attempted rape - of course, good Kirk can soon enough clear himself, but without his bad self he is not much of a Captain, he can't make any bold decisions, he lacks self-confidence, and slowly, depression seems to take over ...

Eventually, evil Kirk is overcome and tied to a bed at sickbay, then though good Kirk has the good idea of taking evil Kirk to the teleporter to after some sort of reverse teleportation become whole again ... only bad Kirk has other ideas, as he wants to take over the ship. And soon enough he knocks out good Kirk and goes to the bridge to make some evil decisions ... but ultimately he is stopped cold by good Kirk who is still man enough to pack a punch ... and wouldn't you know it, after a teleporter-trip, Kirk once again becomes the Kirk we all know and love ...

 

Stories about splitting characters into their good and bad versions are always a bit silly, and so is this one, but at the same time, this one does show more hindsight into the subject than usual, making good Kirk a self-doubting wimp and evil Kirk overflowing with self-confidence, a rarely explored aspect of the subject. What makes this episode really fun though is William Shatner's outrageous but weirdly amusing overacting as his evil alter ego. It's hammy to the hilt but it's also ... wow !
