YMMV / Star Trek S3E8 "For the World Is Hollow and I Have Touched the Sky"

Go To

  • Ass Pull: McCoy's disease is an insoluble problem for most of the show, until Spock discovers that the Fabrini have extensive medical knowledge in their archives including, rather handily, a cure for the incurable (and one that works on humans, no less). At that point it takes about one minute of screen time to fix the good Doctor.
  • Narm: The good people of Yonada worshipping a doorbell.
  • One-Scene Wonder: John Lormer's Old Man, whose sole scene consists of a kindly, sweet attendance on the main trio, an attempt to help give them information that gets him killed for his troubles, and the episode Title Drop. Short, but surpisingly moving.

  • Theiss Titillation Theory: Natira wears a backless cut-out toga made of a green-gold satiny material. This contrasts with the psychedelic muumuus the other Fabrini wear. Whatever takes our attention away from those Highlanders meets Hell's Angels outfits the soldiers wear!
  • They Wasted a Perfectly Good Plot: McCoy's illness. Just imagine what a modern day show could do with a character having a fatal disease and racing against time to find a cure, rather than knowing it'll be fixed somehow by the end of the episode.

How well does it match the trope?
