Wasn't Jameson dying from a disease? Perhaps that prematurely aged him.
Intriguingly, that episode was supposedly pitched as a "return of Kirk/Shatner" episode, IIRC.
Yep, and it shows too with the whole "reversal" of the outcome of "A Private Little War".

Remember this was written during S1 when GR was busy disavowing as much of TOS philosophically as he could.
If that had actually been a sequel to 'A Private Little War' it cud have been pretty good. As it stands, it's already one of the better season one episodes.

Damn, quite a missed opportunity.
