Star Trek: “Catspaw”


Yet another episode about yet another bunch of all powerful aliens that toy with the crew yet again. I have to say, out of all of the “all powerful aliens toy with the crew” episodes this one is the most silly and pointless. This is the Star Trek Halloween Special. Either that or it’s a I Dream of Jeanie episode set in space with all of the fun sucked out of it.

This is one bad. Bad and pointless. If not for the unintended moments of campy hilarity, it would be totally worthless.


Interesting Fact: Theo Marcuse, who played Korob, died in an automobile accident one month after the original airing of the episode.

“The cat is the most ruthless, most terrifying of animals. As far back as the sabertooth tiger.”
– Spock. WTF?
