Star Trek: “Friday’s Child”


This isn’t a great episode, but unlike the bottom of the barrel second season episodes that drag down the otherwise great episodes, it’s tolerable enough.

The thing I enjoy about this episode the most? Catwoman Julie Newmar guest starring as the pregnant chick. She interacts so well with DeForest Kelly and makes it an okay episode.

Not great, just okay.


Interesting Fact: In D. C. Fontana’s original ending, Eleen hands over her baby to save herself. The Capellans keep the baby, because he is a boy, and kill her. Gene Roddenberry overrode Fontana’s ending.
