Okay, so “I, Mudd” is, what, the fourth (?) #TOS episode where Kirk defeats an alien AI by making contrary, illogical statements? You’d think the vast alien intelligences would have long ago patched their AIs with a simple “Does not compute? Store transcript in memory and move on” subroutine.

Still, antiquated misogyny aside, this is a pretty fun episode.

Also, I’m about halfway through season two and have to say that Chekhov is just the worst. Bozhe moi!

  1. Robert Bohl He feels forcibly inserted to me. I don’t get what the hell his purpose is on the ship besides 1) being Russian and 2) looking vaguely like Davy Jones. And as part of #2, they constantly pair him pretty young women, next to whom he just comes off as totally creepy.
