they can control Spock's fingers with a gizmo that has 3 buttons--while undergoing torture?
Complex motion with a limited set of buttons might be credible to anyone who grew up with hand-to-hand combat videogames. Which game gestures did McCoy program into Spock's crown? Street Fighter? Oni?

Why bother with the torture belts at all? When Kirk and company invade the underground complex -- with "hostage" -- they are all knocked flat with the press of a single button, without touching the hostage. The women obviously have an effective weapon that does not require those LOST IN SPACE prop belts.
