Review

Series : The Original Series Rating : 4
Disc No : 2.6 Episode : 55

Writers : Gene Roddenberry Season : 2
Guest Cast :
David Ross as Lieutenant Galloway

Eddie Paskey as Lieutenant Leslie

Lloyd Kino as Wu
Morgan Farley as Old Yang scholar
Morgan Woodward as Captain Ronald Tracey
Roy Jenson as William Cloud
Moral :
Liberty : Liberty and freedom have to be more than just words
YATI : Kirk is amazed that Tracey would dare interfere in another culture in this episode. He says that a Starship captain would give his life, sacrifice his ship and its entire crew rather than do such a heinous thing. There follows a list of episodes in which Kirk has interfered with other cultures: "The Apple", "Miri", "The Return of the Archons", "A Taste of Armageddon", "This Side of Paradise", "Errand of Mercy", "Mirror, Mirror" and "Friday's Child". This is not a complete list, but I trust the point has been made.
Great Moment : The realization that this was another version of Earth when Kirk saw the flag was a nice scene.
Body Count : Thousands of Khoms killed by Tracey.
Factoid : This episode was originally written as one of the three possibles for the second pilot.
Quote : "...Liberty and freedom have to be more than just words." - Kirk to Spock; justifing yet another prime directive violation

Plotline
