Star Trek (season 2)

{4/5} “After a time, you may find that having is not so pleasing a thing after all as wanting. It is not logical, but it is often true.”

Star Trek season 2, aired in 1967-68

When Spock returns to Vulcan to marry his fiancée things don’t go according to plan — he ends up fighting Kirk to the death. When a bunch of diplomats are on board the Enterprise Spock’s father, Sarek, is stabbed. When the transporter malfunctions in an ion storm the landing party finds themselves in a mirror universe where everyone acts much more ruthlessly. When Kirk is ordered to guard some special grain on a station he finds his job complicated by tribbles.

The 2nd season is already not as good as the 1st — there are some great episodes but many mediocre ones. I actually skipped a few.

One more quotation: “The name of the game is called… uh… fizzbin.”

And one more quotation: “Risk is our business.”

Stars DeForest Kelley, James Doohan, and Nichelle Nichols.

Guest stars include Jane Wyatt, Diana Muldaur, William Windom, William Campbell, and Roger C. Carmel.

Episodes in this season were written by Jerome Bixby, Norman Spinrad, and David Gerrold. Others were, of course, written by Gene Roddenbery, Gene L. Coon, and D. C. Fontana.

This is the 2nd time I’ve seen it. I previously reviewed season 1.
