Re: "The Alternative Factor" - Why is it so universally hated?

Everything in the episode is too long; it seems like a 25 minute idea stretched to twice that length.

And, as has been argued in detail already, the idea wasn't very good to begin with. It is surprising that Don Ingalls was asked back for the second season, but, then again, he was an old drinking buddy of Roddenberry's.
