Episode 33: Who Mourns for Adonis? Greek mythology collides with the future in Who Mourns for Adonis?, an episode from the second season of the popular science fiction series. Traveling through distant space, the Enterprise is trapped by a mysterious force field that appears in the shape of a gigantic human hand. Seeking an explanation for this phenomenon, Kirk leads an expedition to explore a nearby planet, and they encounter a powerful creature who claims to be the ancient god Apollo. After demonstrating his immense power, Apollo orders Kirk and the others to bow down in worship. Outmatched in terms of brute force, the captain and his crew must discover a way to outwit Apollo or else remain trapped forever. ~ Judd Blaise, All Movie Guide

Episode 34: Amok Time. One of the most famous episodes of the original {#Star Trek} series, "Amok Time" finds the normally logical, restrained Mr. Spock acting oddly and demonstrating an uncharacteristically short temper. His fellow officers soon discover that Spock is passing through pon farr, the Vulcan mating period; during this period, which reoccurs every seven years, Vulcans are compelled to mate or die. To save his first mate, Captain Kirk redirects the Enterprise to the planet Vulcan, so Spock can participate in the traditional mating ritual, which shall be overseen by the great Vulcan elder T'Pau and include an arranged marriage to his pre-selected mate, T'Pring. When they arrive, however, T'Pring has another suitor. Spock expects to face this suitor in a fight to the death, another part of the ritual; however, as part of her own secret scheme, T'Pring selects another champion: Kirk. Kirk soon finds himself facing a crazed Spock in deadly combat, with no apparent chance of escape. Penned by acclaimed science-fiction writer Theodore Sturgeon, this episode is remembered most for the rare glimpse inside the Vulcan culture, and the memorable final battle sequence. ~ Judd Blaise, All Movie Guide
