Kirk and McCoy decide to take Scotty, who is recovering from a head wound accidentally caused by a female crew member, to a nightclub on the planet Argelius II. Scotty becomes infatuated with a lovely dancer at the club and they leave together. In the meantime, Kirk and McCoy decide to sample some of the planet's other pleasures and leave.

A scream sends them to a foggy alley to find the dancer dead with Scotty holding a bloody knife. McCoy suggests that perhaps Scotty's subconscious distrust of women since his accident has manifested itself in murder.

Hengist, the local authority, wants to arrest Scotty, but Kirk intervenes and seeks the help of a priestess of an old psionic cult. Unfortunately, she's killed and once more the blame seems to fall at Scotty's feet. Before she dies, the priestess says that something with an insatiable hunger and hatred of women is present in the room. Scotty still claims to have amnesia during the time when the women were killed.

In the end, the entity turns out to be an ancient life form, Redjac, previously known on Earth as Jack the Ripper. It now appears in true form: a noncorporeal vampire who thrives on others' fear. It preys on women because they are more easily frightened. It has been living in the body of Hengist and, when discovered, kills Hengist and flees to the U.S.S. Enterprise.

McCoy administers tranquilizers to everyone on board so that the creature cannot evoke fear. Enraged, it is forced to return to Hengist's body. Kirk, knowing this would happen, beams it into space at maximum dispersal, where it will die for lack of nourishment.

There's some great music in this episode.

(3) Applaud ------------------ 24.1 KB
Captain Kirk - Scotty

Who applauds by hitting one hand on a table??
Maybe pub crawlers from Aberdeen!

Actually, they had Scotty do this for a very good reason:
James Doohan is missing a finger on his right hand.
It's true!
They didn't want the audience to know this so
they had to have Scotty clap with only one hand.
If he clapped with both hands someone might notice
his missing finger.  Silly, I know, but it was the '60's.

In scenes where we get a close-up view of
Scotty's hands (operating the transporter for example)
someone else's hands were always used.
(A "hand-in" instead of a "stand-in") *Smile*

Incidentally, they did goof up now and then.
The most obvious example is in
"The Trouble With Tribbles"
when Scotty comes into the Rec Room with his arms
filled with Tribbles.  Take a close look at his hands.
You can clearly see he's missing a finger.

Sorry, that was a rather long-winded explanation,
but I thought you might be interested.

Scotty - Captain Kirk

(6) Explosion ----------------- 25.4 KB
Captain Kirk - Dr. McCoy

Does this sound resonable to anyone?
What if the explosion had been caused by a man?
Do you think Scotty would suddenly have developed
a resentment towards men?
I don't think so.

Kind of a week story idea to me.

(7) Hate --------------------- 21.9 KB
Dr. McCoy

Does McCoy really think that a one-night-stand
will cure Scotty's resentment towards women?

(8) Place -------------------- 14.5 KB

This episode makes our heros out to be skirt-chasers.

Definitely sounds like something they said in the 60's.

Mr. Hengist - Jaris

Can't argue with that kind of logic!

(13) Spaceport -------------- 40.6 KB
Jaris - Captain Kirk

Only one in the Quadrant?
In all fairness, this was way before they decided
that our galaxy is divided into 4 quadrants.
The 4 quadrants are: Alpha, Beta, Gamma, Delta.

If this was said today it would be:
"It's the only one in the sector."
Each quadrant in our galaxy is divided into many sectors.

Excellent performace here by William Shatner.
He really sounds frustrated!!

A rather large WAV file, but it's worth it.
Excellent performance by Pilar Seurat as Sybo.

Did you know that Dean Devlin (producer of such movies
as 'Independence Day' and 'Godzilla') is the son
of Pilar Seurat?  It's true!

Things aren't looking too good for Scotty.

Jaris - Scotty

Not a very pleasant way to meet your end.

You know, I've heard it said that Capital Punishment
doesn't deter crime.  I'll tell you this though...
It sure stops them from committing another murder!
And NOBODY can argue with THAT!

Good description Scotty!

Captain Kirk

Picture this situation from any crewmember's
point of view who is NOT in the room with Kirk.

You're going about your normal business and suddenly
the captain makes this announcement.

I think I'd START worrying!!

(39) Volcano ----------------- 19.6 KB
Captain Kirk - Dr. McCoy

If this is supposed to be a strong sedative, how come
everyone starts acting as though they've been given laughing gas?

(40) Stop -------------------- 36.8 KB
Redjac (Jack the Ripper)

Excellent idea making Jack the Ripper be an alien entity.

(41) Gloomy ----------------- 18.6 KB
Mr. Sulu

Does it make any sense sedating the guy
that's piloting the ship?  Then again, the sedative
isn't acting like any sedative I've heard of.

(42) Supernova -------------- 16.8 KB
Mr. Sulu

It might be called a sedative, but it doesn't sedate!

If you're wondering what the name of the WAV means: It's PI.
