Okay, I just finished season one of my TOS-R set. What are your thoughts on Operation – Annihilate! ?? I remember liking this episode as a kid during the 70’s re-runs, but now it’s like, WHAT A SNOOZE-FEST!! Dramamine® doesn't even put me to sleep as fast as this episode! I really cannot hold my attention on it for some reason, I think it’s because I find it excessively talky, not much action and the abrupt finale. I wish that I liked it as much as when I was young, I mean it does have good things going for it: Shatner as a corpse with a mustache. A cool and futuristic outdoor colony setting Flying fake vomit / brain-cell creatures Kirk’s hot sister-in-law (YEEAAA!) Kirk’s young nephew that never speaks (booooo…) Kirk blows-up on Uhura and doesn't apologize. Several phaser special effects. (very nice) Nurse Chapel with strawberry-blonde hair. And the new set (lab) of Sickbay and all the cool new props. So, good production values, great acting (as usual) and pretty good overall storyline I think. And yet, it’s missing something. It’s missing passion or something along those lines. I just find it rather dull. And dull to me is a greater sin than campy, corny, dated, poor FX etc. Yeah, there are dorky things like Kirk ordering McCoy to over-drug the sister-in-law which eventually kills her and McCoy stupidly blinding Spock. Come to think of it, Spock stupidly lets himself be blinded. I'm glad that I wasn't a red-shirt in McCoy’s sickbay that day! I think the ending is rather anti-climatic as well. And no "thanks a lot" from the colony or anything, the ungrateful SOB’s. The first season should have ended on a high point with City rather than a sleeper like OA, IMHO. So what is the general consensus here? 'Yay or 'Nay on Operation – Annihilate! ??
