Home

ERRAND OF MERCY

Original Air date: March 23rd, 1967

Guest Starring:
John Colicos, John Abbott, David Hillary Hughes

THE PLOT:

The Universe is on the brink of War as the Klingon race increases its empire by leaps and bounds and creeping into Federation space. Kirk and Spock have come to a small planet to warn of the Klingon invasion. But seemly uncaring about the news and do not wish to be protected.

But it is Kirk and Spock who need the Protection as the Klingons arrive sooner then expected and they are trapped on the planet. So they arrange a two man rebellion against the alien occupation and still they get no help from the natives who insist they are not in danger. Are they pacifist run amok or is something else happening here.

THE OPINION:

I like this episode and I think John Colicos always makes a great bad guy. But I wish they made a model of the Klingon ship here instead of waiting until all the way to season 3 to do it.
