DAGGER OF THE MIND
ORIGINAL AIRDATE: NOVEMBER 3rd, 1966
Gust Star: James Gregory, Morgan Woodward and Marianna Hill
On a routine stop of an asylum planet, the Enterprise picks up a hitchhiker. A former doctor who the current Doctor in charge
claims to have damaged his min while testing a new device to help cure the insane.
But when Kirk suspect there is something fishy, he's captured, Spock tries to get to the truth with the former head of
the asylum. But will Kirk join him in insanity?
This is a good epiosde, but not a great episode. I think it was slow and the lack of monsters really made it slow. There
was some intense acting in this and they introduce the Vulcan Mind Meld, so it's not without merit.
