I know I should rate this episode lower, but I just can’t. I know I should hate an episode which balances on the unlikely premise that the magic code that opens the secret door just happens to be the same phonetic sounds one would make if one were saying “Enterprise – this is Kirk!” Yes – that is a farce, but. . .but. . .let’s look at the good elements of this episode. For starters: I Am Kirok!! Kirk gets a bump on his head and lets himself get talked into believing he is a Native American God! And then he falls in love and even impregnates a woman. (She dies and the child dies in utero, so we don’t have to worry about them monkeying about in next week’s episode — have no fear!) I distinctly remember seeing this episode as a kid, but falling asleep midway. So I never knew how Kirk was going to get off that planet before the killer asteroid did. Little did I know the writers had no idea either.
