Series: The Original Series – Season Three Episode: “Specter of the Gun” Trek Installment # 150 Grade: F Viewing Date: February 15, 2010 Not a good start . . . It really just doesn’t make sense. Why didn’t the aliens just up and kill them? Why the illusion of the OK Corral? Why the need to make them go through all these hoops? It just lacked common sense – and thus it collapses the entire episode. Three things that I actually liked about this one: - the discussion after Chekov was killed; surprisingly only in that this was the first time we’ve seen these characters mourn their fallen crewmates - the whole “mind over matter” solution - the storm at the end That’s all. The aliens were stupid, the premise was weak and flawed, and it all just sucked.
