Episode 57: Elaan of Troyius. Kirk's command ability is threatened when he falls victim to an alien woman's magical charms in this episode from the third season of the 1960s science fiction television series. The Enterprise is assigned to transport representatives of two warring cultures, Ambassador Petri of Troyius and Elaan of Elas. Petri's mission, with the help of the Enterprise crew, is to tame the primitive and uncontrollable Elaan. This proves to be a difficult task when she lives up to her vicious reputation, enacting violent fits of rage that culminate in the nonfatal stabbing of Petri. Elaan's reckless behavior increasingly frustrates Kirk, until she cries and Kirk unwittingly comes in contact with one of her tears. These tears prove to have mystical powers, causing Kirk to fall madly in love. His sudden obsession with Elaan may be deadly to the Enterprise, however, which comes under attack from a Klingon vessel -- a situation where Kirk's leadership is desperately needed. ~ Judd Blaise, All Movie Guide

Episode 58: The Paradise Syndrome. The Enterprise's attempt to evacuate a planet threatened with oncoming destruction backfires when Captain Kirk is left behind. This installment of the well-known science fiction series begins when Kirk, Mr. Spock, and Dr. McCoy arrive upon the planet, planning to warn the native tribal culture about a rapidly approaching asteroid. The trio are diverted from their mission, however, by the need to investigate an odd, monolith-like device that appears to be far beyond the native's technological ability. While exploring, Kirk enters the device and disappears; unable to find their captain, Spock and McCoy return to the Enterprise. Having given up on evacuating the planet, they now hope to redirect the asteroid away from the planet. Meanwhile, Kirk emerges from the device, having lost his memory. Unaware of his identity, Kirk joins the planet's native culture, and is welcomed as a new tribal leader. Meanwhile, however, Spock and McCoy are racing against time to save his life -- and that of everyone else on the planet. ~ Judd Blaise, All Movie Guide
