Star Trek: TOS 3.13 - Wink of an Eye

Review 67 - Episode 68

The One with the really fast aliens

Quite enjoyable, if slightly daft (almost sums up TOS as a whole.) Kirk is kidnapped by aliens who exist outside normal time as a highly accelerated rate of time. This is a good idea. They kidnap him to breed him and the rest of the crew as their males are sterile. This is a bad idea.

Somewhere in the middle, a watchable episode has come out. The science is a little wonky with the time dilation logic, but I enjoyed Spock and McCoy trying to solve the captains disappearance. Worth a watch, though Spocks comedy final line is very bad this episode. You have been warned.

Overall Star Trek Franchise Rating so far: 194/335
