So I just watched this episode and immediately did a search for it here, but to my astonishment couldn't find any mentions of it. This is the episode where the men of Enterprise get lured down to a planet harbored by women who upholds their immortality by draining the life force of humanoid males every 27 years. This is also the episode in which Uhura finally gets command over the Enterprise! One of the main reasons I started watching TAS was because of I heard about this episode, and man was it good. Uhura performs eminently as a bad ass captain, (spoiler) who not only manages to save Kirk & co just in time, but even calls for a ship to save the space women from the curse of immortality. (end spoiler) Only thing that was a bit wack was that Spock had to have the last word in that he was the one who saved the rest of the men from rapid aging. Albeit, I can't really see anyone else coming up with that particular solution. Anyways, I'm a huge Uhura fan, and I was really quite disappointed that they didn't utilize her character more in TOS. I read somewhere that Nichelle Nichols herself really regrets that there wasn't any TOS episode where Uhura took command of Enterprise, which I wholeheartedly agree with. It's not really comparable, but what we get in The Lorelei Signal is better than nothing. It's just a shame to think about how easily they could've made an absolute killer TOS episode out of this.
