Basically, Kirk gets duplicated. Again.
A lot of episodes of Star Trek were pretty progressive for their time (some are even progressive for this time). This episode ain’t one of them.
I keep wanting to call this “The Evil Within,” but that’s something else entirely.
Anyway, in this episode, we get the first instance of the beloved transporter malfunction trope.
Now we’re moving on to “The Naked Time,” which immediately makes me think of this:
Welcome back! This time around I’m looking at “Where No Man Has Gone Before,” which is the second episode in a row with the “dude with psychic powers fucks shit up” theme.
Welcome back to the recaps! This week, I’m looking at “Charlie X,” which does a very good job of why we shouldn’t give superpowers to children.
Welcome back to the land of Star Trek recaps! This week, I’ll be taking a look at the second aired episode, “The Man Trap.”
