Released Dec. 22, 1967

Bri’s Overall Rating (3/5)

Overall - 3 out of 5



Aliens (2/5)

Aliens - 2 out of 5



I like the non-physical aliens, but I like seeing at least something

Costumes (4/5)

But only when they are down on the planet. I think it is funny how all the women are in red to add to the boom chicka boom boom feel.



Fight Choreography (2/5)

Fight - 2 out of 5



For the scuffle in the conference room.

Bechdel Test (2/3)

Bechdel - 2 out of 3



There are a lot of women in this episode. Most of them are murdered and they never get to discuss the events together.

Bonus Sexism: The entire opening. Good thing Scotty doesn’t resent all women because one made a mistake. Also, women are targeted because they’re more emotional. And pleasure worlds are always seemingly for men…..

Star Trek: The Original Series – Season 2 is available for purchase on Amazon.
