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!
