Re: Episode of the Week : Mudd's Women

It isn't a favorite, and probaby Trek's first mis-step IMO.

If I am feeling charitable, I might chalk it up to GR wanting to give the studio what they wanted: a western in space. Whereas Star Trek did usually tend to err more towards Horatio Hornblower for inspiration, "Mudd's Women" is a story that could have easily been told on any conventional western with very little re-writing required.

Absolutely. This episode's "message" isn't exactly very wholesome.
