THE ALTERNITIVE FACTOR

Original Air date: March 30th, 1967

Guest Starring:
Robert Brown

THE PLOT:

While investigating an uncharted planet, the Enterprise is hit by unknown violent shocks, a blink out effect as Spock puts it. Investigating this blink out effect they meet Lazarus who seems to be involved in it. He says he's after a monster that killed his people.

Later they find him again and he gives a different story. It seems it's connected to the matter and antimatter universe and Lazarus and his antimatter doppleganger is the cause. They're fighting might unravel all of existence.

THE OPINION:

Love to love ya baby. But don't love this episode. It's a tad repetitive, the action is kind of weak and my biggest complaint of this episode is Lazarus. Both Lazarus look almost exactly alike, so much so I can't tell you the difference. If the clothes were a different color or something it wouldn't be so confusing.
