Just got finished rewatching Amok Time. This was probably only the second or third time I've ever actually sat down and watched the whole thing, and I was surprised at how amazing it is. It's the perfect example of what makes Star Trek: The Original Series so great. Just a couple of thoughts: -It takes much more time than I remember to get to Vulcan from the start of the episode. The build up, however, is very nice, and once we get to Vulcan the payoff is so worth it. -The Vulcans seem to wear silver helmets similar to the gold helmets the Romulans wear. -The scenes with Nurse Chapel, while somewhat cringeworthy in parts, are overall sort of sweet. I truly sympathize with her in the scenes she was in. -Wasn't T'Pau later featured in Enterprise, as a younger Vulcan? -After having seen the bridge of the Enterprise in Discovery, I was worried the TOS bridge wouldn't hold up to repeat viewings. Not to worry, both bridge designs compliment each other perfectly. -The highlight of the episode was the reason I rewatched: Spock's joyous line "JIM!" It was such a breath of fresh air to hear Leonard Nimoy say that line, after the past two weeks of my personal life sucking so bad, that I laughed out loud. Spock has never been my favorite character of Star Trek, but he's still amazing, and he is high on my list nevertheless. This episode was the perfect example of everything right and wrong with the original series. And if the previous sentence is true, then there is a lot more going for the original Star Trek than there is going against. Live Long and Prosper!
