BALANCE OF TERROR

Original Airdate: December 15th, 1966
Mark Lenard, Paul Comi, Lawrence Montaigne

THE PLOT:

The Enterprise responds to a distress call too late, the base if wiped out. The pupatrators are still here, the Romulans have broke the peace they held for over 70 years. The purpose to test two new weapons, a new kind of plasma weapon and the cloaking device.

Now it's the hunt for the Bird Of Prey, as the Enterprise must stop the experimental ship before it escapes and the Romulans build a fleet that could conquer the Federation and the Universe.

THE OPINION:

I think this was an interesting episode, dramatic and slow. But still more interesting then the last one. I think they went cheap making the Romulans look like Vulcans. But that's a minor complaints. The Romulans and the Klingons are the most power villians in the Enterprise Rogue's Gallery and it was an interesting futuristic version of RUN SILENT RUN DEEP.
