Captain Kirk (William Shatner) of the star ship Enterprise accompanies
nurse Chapel (Majel Barrett) down to the planet where her fiancé Dr Korby
(Michael Strong) was presumed lost years ago ... to find him very much
alive, having built himself a lab in the planet's catacombs where he works
on androids. But the years in the catacombs seem to have turned him into a
fanatic, and Kirk thinks he is crazy. Kroby though wants Kirk's help, to
relocate his operations to another planet, and when Kirk refuses, Korby
simply builds himself an exact replica of Kirk, to go back to the
Enterprise in Kirk's stead. But somehow, Kirk has fed his double with some
information (double Kirk, once back aboard, calls Spock [Leonard Nimoy] a halfbreed)
so everyone will know he's not the real McCoy ... er, Kirk.
Then Kirk convinces Ruk (Ted Cassidy), an old android who is the only
survivor from a civilisation from centuries ago who has now been turned
into Kroby's servant, to rebel. And as if that wasn't enough, Kirk kisses
Andrea (Sherry Jackson), Korby's pretty female android companion on the
planet, which totally messes up her programming ... and in the end, Andrea
kills herself and Korby because - well, I don't really know why. Ah yeah,
and to noone's real surprise Korby has also turned out to be an android in
the end ...
Despite a totally messed up screenplay and a very silly ending this is
a rather likeable episode: It has great, almost psychedelic cave-sets, Ted
Kennedy makes an impressive, towering android and the whole episode is
permeated by a gothic atmosphere not otherwise associated with Star
