* DefrostingIceQueen: Dr. Jones is very frosty, warming up at the very end.



** The ball must've been picked up by Kollos who just forgot that his host needed those red goggles to look at himself without making his host lose his mind. Kirk suspects that Dr. Jones used her telepathy to make him forget. She denies it.

** Well, DIANA MULDAUR.

A formal dinner is held. Unfortunately, due to the fact that he is an EnergyBeing and one whose sight causes madness in humans, Kollos cannot attend. It's revealed that Dr. Jones is a born telepath--rare among humans. She has lived on Vulcan to better learn control of her abilities. She excuses herself, saying that someone on the ship is contemplating murder. When an engineering genius called Marvick follows, she realizes it's him. Marvick desires Dr. Jones, who is in love with Kollos. Marvick may have designed the engines of the ''Enterprise'', but he can't figure out why she'd choose someone charming, intelligent, insightful and congenial over a selfish, sexist, hateful and brash whiner like him.

Marvick decides he'll MurderTheHypotenuse of this LoveTriangle. Yeah, just sneak up and pull a phaser on that mini-EldritchAbomination. [[WhatAnIdiot Great idea.]] Next thing we know, Marvick has strangled a RedShirt, KO'ed several others, taken control of the ship and driven into an alternate universe filled with nothing but purple clouds as far as the eye can see. And then he's inconsiderate enough to die before steering them out! But wait, Kollos is a navigational expert! All he needs is a physical body. Dr. Jones volunteers, but there's just one problem. [[DreamCrushingHandicap She's blind and]] [[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration the VISOR]] hasn't been invented yet!

A formal dinner is held. Unfortunately, due to the fact that he is an EnergyBeing and one whose sight causes madness in humans, Kollos cannot attend. However, Dr. Jones does attend, as does Dr. Larry Marvick, an engineering genius who has been working with Kollos and Dr. Jones on a project to combine Medusan navigation know-how with Federation starship technology. It's revealed that Dr. Jones is a born telepath--rare among humans. She has lived on Vulcan to better learn control of her abilities. She excuses herself, saying that someone on the ship is contemplating murder. When an engineering genius called Marvick follows, she realizes it's him.also excuses himself, and follows her back to her quarters. Marvick desires Dr. Jones, who is and has repeatedly refused to accept that she's not interested in love with Kollos. Marvick may him, and certainly not willing to entertain his demand that she give up her career among the Medusans so they can be together. She tells him to get lost, and very kindly doesn't have designed the engines of the ''Enterprise'', but he can't figure out why she'd choose someone charming, intelligent, insightful and congenial over a selfish, sexist, hateful and brash whiner like him.

Marvick decides he'll MurderTheHypotenuse the only sensible thing to do is [[MurderTheHypotenuse put Dr. Jones out of this LoveTriangle.a job by murdering Kollos]].

* GiveGeeksAChance: At last, [[TheCasanova even Kirk]] strikes out, losing to a disembodied life form whose appearance causes insanity. (Hinted to be considered a "geek" among alien races.)



* GreenEyedMonster: Marvick is envious of Jones's love for Kollos. (It can't be called jealousy as he never had her love to start with.) Dr. Jones is envious of Spock's superior mental abilities.
* IdiotBall: Marvick must be carrying one to think assassinating a mini-EldritchAbomination is a good idea. Scotty can be forgiven for endangering the ship since, after all, Marvick was one of the designers of the ''Enterprise'' engines and it wasn't like he was wearing a sign that said "Hello, I'm crazy today". The ball must've been picked up by Kollos who just forgot that his host needed those red goggles to look at himself without making his host lose his mind.

* MeaningfulName: "Medusan" obviously is inspired by Medusa of Myth/GreekMythology. Kollos hints this is only what others call his race, not what they call themselves. Dr. Jones' first name is Miranda, meaning "Fair to look upon". She certainly is attractive. Kirk calls her "The loveliest human to grace a star ship." Kollos realizes her connection with the character from Theatre/TheTempest when he says "O brave new world that hath such people in it."

* [[InformedDeformity Informed Ugliness]]: Everyone refers to Kollos as so ugly it drives people insane, but as Jones points out, it might as well be insanity-inducing beauty.
