I swear I just posted on this, already. Anyway, I see no poll here, but worst orig. Treks: Apple Friday's child Triskelion Chil Shall Lead Wink of Eye Whom Gods Elaan of Troius (no mention yet?!) Gideon That Wh Survives Cloud minders Savage Curtain (!!) Turnabout Intruder "Plato's Stepchildren" was one of the few season 3 solid stories that had real humanity to it. I can only attribute the criticism to a misinterpretation of the Kirk-Spock "entertainment" scenes as "wackiness" rather than as what they were: a shocking degradation of the dignity of the characters on the part of omnipotent egomaniacs. "How can you let this go on?"--- that was a hard moment. And don't anyone dare criticize the late Michael Dunn!
