1×07 – What Are Little Girls Made Of

Premise: The crew visits a planet to find a scientist who’s been missing for 5 years. Turns out he’s been using some abandoned machinery to create androids. He holds Captain Kirk captive in an attempt to make him understand the value of his experiments.

4:25 – Nurse Christine asks Spock if he’s ever been engaged. Kirk stifles a laugh, and Spock doesn’t know how to answer. 😉

26:43 – The scientist is making an android duplicate of Kirk. Kirk quietly repeats to himself, “Mind your own business, Mr. Spock. I’m sick of your half-breed interference, do you hear?” Smart guy – he’s trying to transfer an unnatural phrase into the android to send Spock a message.

35:10 – Haha, I had previously seen a clip of this moment and was wondering when it would pop up in the series. Kirk, while trying to escape, detaches an interesting-looking stalactite:

35:10 – The android version of Captain Kirk is aboard the ship. It utters the phrase Kirk wanted it to say: “Mind your own business, Mr. Spock. I’m sick of your half-breed interference, do you hear!” Spock’s right eyebrow goes through the roof. He instantly knows something’s not right.

49:00 – Kirk & Spock are safely back on the bridge. Spock walks over to Kirk and gives him a look.

Kirk: “Something bothering you, Mr. Spock?”
Spock: “Frankly I was rather dismayed by your use of the term ‘half-breed,’ Captain. You must admit it is an unsophisticated expression.”
Kirk: “I’ll remember that, Mr. Spock. The next time I find myself in a similar situation.”

Spock’s obviously not too offended – he must just be ribbing the captain here. He must know that the Captain used it specifically because it would raise a red flag and get Spock to send a security crew.

This was a good Kirk episode. We got to see him showing emotion, getting captured & thrown around, kissing a beautiful woman, shirtless, wearing weird overalls, hanging from a cliff, strangling someone, and generally using his wiles to get out of a sticky situation.

Steady as we go, helm.

    I just loved your observation on the “interesting-looking” stalactite. I laughed like a drain – I’d never noticed that before! As before, thank you for such amusing reviews. I love this blog

    Any friend of Spock is a friend of mine. Nicely done, Earthling.
