|Guest Reviews :
||Kirk and co. find it incredible that a group of Nazis exist on an alien planet. Yet they found it perfectly reasonable that a Roman society could develop in "Bread and Circuses", only nine episodes ago. They claim it is a perfect example of "Hodgkin's law of parallel planetary development". So why are the Nazis any different?
|Great Moment :
||The scene where the Ekosian declared Spock to be physically and mentally inferior. It's always good to see a Nazi make a fool of himself.
|Body Count :
||Gill and one of the Nazis.
||This is one of several examples of the "Exactly like the Earth" episodes TOS had and the only one with a vaguely sensible explanation, since the similarities were deliberately created.
||"What he's saying, Spock, is that a man who holds that much power, even with the best intentions, just can't resist the urge to play god." - McCoy to Spock.
The Enterprise crew find a planet where history is repeating itself as the Nazis run riot again.
