WNMHGB...no surprise.

Lockwood's evolution from a strong best friend type one coould easily imagine as a series rgular, to the cold, mocking "god" figure is one of the most effective, memorable performances in ST. Kellerman was strong out of the gates--stern, hardheaded and sympathetic all in one package.

Both played a major role in the success of the second pilot.

Despite the fact it is clearly not in the set mold of later regular season 1 episodes in hardly any respect---I will never tire of seeing this episode--it is a classic bit of sci-fi and lays the groundwork for a Kirk we can like and respect and a Spock who although different is easy to respect.

Like Spock i feel for Mitchell and Dehner every time I watch this episode. How they followed such a classic effort as The Cage with yet another truly classic bit of television is almost a miracle.

I watch the episodes in order and when I am just about at the end of the rope with all the horrible season 3 episodes--I always know I have the Cage and WNMHGB right around the corner to revive my faith in the show.

5 stars always was-- always will be.

And yeah about Kellerman ---- too damn bad we didn't get more strong forceful women in the regular series...

Once again Susan Oliver as Vina and Sally Kellerman as Dehner in the two pilots---outstanding casting

I may be wrong, but I think Jiangnan Freak is not sure what "WNMHGB" stands for. Well it´s short for "Where No Man has Gone Before", which is quite a long title if you were to write it in full everytime you want to mention that episode

Ohhhhh, as great as he was as the Squire, Campbell swallowed as a Klingon. His performance in Tribbles is the reason why I CANNOT vote for Tribbles.

I agree. I hate his Koloth. After Colicos tore it up and even Tige Andrews did just fine in "Friday's Child"-- Campbell's take on a Klingon Com was ------ lame.

I get the episode was not a serious one, but he seemed so wrong for the part, even in an episode with "Tribbles" tone.

They wanted Colicos back--I've always wondered what he would have done with the lines. Snarled them at least i would guess.
Koloth= pansy

Agreed, Campbell was all wrong in "Tribbles". Michael Pataki should have been cast as Koloth instead of the XO, he was much more believable as a TOS-era Klingon.

Let's pretend Koloth got the job by nepotism and Pataki was given the XO job to make sure he didn't screw up too badly.

I can live with that, but how do you explain Koloth's Prussian heel click and bow? Was he a Stalag 17 fan?

You don't know Stalag 17 until you've seen it in the original Klingon.
