||Not so keen on this one; perhaps TOS got off to a bit of a shaky start. Charlie was not entirely convincing, although that may have something to do with the fact that he did not look quite young enough. Still, some of his behaviour made some sense as someone who had not seen another member of his species until a few days before. However, it was impossible not to feel sorry for him at the end. The new Thasian ship was good, and done just as it would have been in the sixties if they had thought of it then. I also noticed a rare smile from Spock during a scene in the recreation room, just before Uhura's song. Still, that did not quite cover a slightly weak story. For all his imaginative talents, Gene Rodenberry's scriptwriting was never really in the premier league.
