One of only two appearances by the Romulans in the original series, this is a terrific episode. Plenty of intrigue and action. I own a t-shirt that says Vulcan Death Grip on it that uses the screenshot too.

Jack's Review
I am quite the fan of western films and have done quite a bit of research on Wyatt Earp. So, while this episode is not even remotely historically accurate, it is lots of fun. I remember watching this one as a kid and the climax always blew my mind.

Another classic episode. The basic premise of this episode is reused (slightly) in the TNG episode, "The Next Phase". Hard to say which one is better, but the classic Trek quality of this one makes it worth watching.

Jack's Review
I always used to mix this episode up with "Wink of an Eye". Thankfully, reviewing the episodes as I have helped me to sort them out. This one is a classic Trek episode: enemy takes over ship, crew in peril, Kirk kicks butt. Some things never get old.

Jack's Review
This one isn't nearly as bad as folks make out. However, thanks to Presentism the act of judging the past by modern values and standards, it does have a pretty cringe-worthy moment between Lincoln and Uhura. Fortunately her response is Star Trek at its finest - something we could all stand to pay attention to these days.

Jack's Review
Such a great penultimate episode. I would have thought, as well done as this one is, the studio would have kept the show going. I love the way the away team gets split up. Mr Atoz (yep, A to Z) is a terrific character and Mariette Hartley is amazing - although she will always be the short-lived wife of Dr. David Banner on The Incredible Hulk way back in 78. Heck, she even won an award for that role -and you can see how good she is in this early venture as well.
