Jack's Review
Here it is....my second favorite episode of all time. This one has everything you need to be a classic. Powerful enemy, eminent danger for the ship, a mind meld, and Kirk at his absolute best! It also follows the red-shirt rule! My step-dad and I used to drive my Mom crazy walking around saying "I am Nomad. I am Perfect" for a week after seeing this episode on TV. Couple of neat trivia items here: This is the first time Scotty says the famous "giving them all we got" phrase. This episode is also one of four times Kirk is able to talk a computer to death. The other episodes are The Return of the Archons , I, Mudd, and The Ultimate Computer.
