Star Trek: TOS 3.14 - That Which Survives

Review 68 - Episode 69

The One with female assassin

Disappointing, considering it's not a bad premise. The away team of Kirk, Sulu, Bones and walking red shirt dead man beam down to a strange planet, while the Enterprise is blown hundreds of light years away by a beautiful woman whose touch can kill.

The trouble here is that there's no end game. Kirk and co survive on the planet and encounter the woman but nothing really happens (beyond the red shirt death). And the Enterprise's struggle to get back falls rather flat, with Spock being annoying rather than humorous.

I dunno, maybe I was in a bad mood watching this, but I really didn't like it and the coda is crap

Overall Star Trek Franchise Rating so far: 195/340
