    But the Venus drug wasn't fake, just the substitute ones that were used in that final scene. Otherwise it makes the (male) crew of the Enterprise look even more incompetent!

    As I say in post # 123:

    And in post # 127:

    Mudd used his hold over the women to force them to get the miners to support Mudd.

    Probably hiding in embarrassment over their male colleagues.

    "The Way to Eden" - give it a proper focal point... or failing that, at least get Adam to convince the men to wear miniskirts and thigh-high go-go boots. There's no possible way the episode could be any worse.

    Operation Annihilate! Don't have Spock lose his vision only to miraculously regain it in the same episode where we learn Vulcans have some special eye protection from high intensity lights.

    Space Seed. Khan should not have been given a starfleet uniform.

    I thought it was made clear that the men reacted that way because of the Venus drug. In addition to making Mudd's women more physically attractive, it seemed to have pheromone-like properties. That's why it made McCoy's diagnostic scanner go "bleep!"

    Improve "The Way to Eden"? At the end when the Enterprise leaves Eden show them running at warp just ahead of some angry Romulans in Warbirds, belatedly reacting to the incursion by the Enterprise.

    The men didn't get the Venus drug so why would they react that way?
    It the traditional love potion trope the victim gets the love potion. That happened in Mudd's TAS episode and Harry Potter etc.
    We're sort of expected to accept a drug ingested by another person can make us act like a total idiot around them. And that we the audience are OK with the crew of the Enterprise doing that.

    Anyway if the drug removed wrinkles and did make people look younger and more attractive Harry could make a million times more money just selling it in the beauty industry.

    The Venus drug causes some measurable physiological effect in the partakers. This is made clear because the diagnostic sensor in sick bay goes "bleep."

    This same physiological effect affects the men on the Enterprise and, no doubt, the miners, too.

    Mudd, however, seems immune.

    He likely has the antidote and is keeping it to himself until it becomes profitable to do so. I can imagine him selling the Venus drug, and after that goes awry, his secret partner sells the antidote, and they share the profits.
