DAGGER OF THE MIND

ORIGINAL AIRDATE: NOVEMBER 3rd, 1966
Gust Star: James Gregory, Morgan Woodward and Marianna Hill

THE PLOT:

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?

THE OPINION:

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.
