Star Trek: “The Paradise Syndrome”

Captain Kirk parties a little too hardy and steers the ship right into an asteroid. When he wakes up the next morning, he can’t even remember how to pronounce his own name. Spock & Doc rescue him, but not until after he gets stoned again. Oh, yeah, he also falls in love again and gets another woman pregnant, so he gets her an abortion the hard way.

Star Trek: “Assignment: Earth”

The Enterprise goes back in time again, to the 20th century again (This saves a lot of money on sets, props, and costumes.) An alien invades Earth, disguised as an Earthling. (This saves more money on costumes and makeup, and makes casting easier.) This was a pilot for a new show that the network liked so much they not only didn’t pick it up but they canceled Star Trek besides.
