Oh... my... Gosh...
Is all I have to say about this episode.
HILARIOUS? Oh yeah. The Plot... let's just say whoever wrote the story wasn't looking for a Pulitzer. Essentially it is about a planet that can make anything you think about or dream about come true. Can be good. Can be bad. Includes a White Rabbit, Don Juan, McCoy flirting with a Princess, Samarai Dude, And yes... girls that look like they came off of a playboy magazine insert... maybe they did. Anyway...
This is not a character defining episode. But it is HILARIOUS. I enjoyed it. Probably gets better the later at night you watch it, or the more beers you have had. :) Definitely not for a "serious" Trekkie/Trekker (is there such a thing?) But definitely good for a giggle.
SQUIRE OF GOTHOS
Ok... this is probably my second favorite episode! Squire of Gothos is CLASSIC in the fullest sense of the word.
(Spoiler for anyone who may have not heard of this episode... IF there is such a thing) This is the one with the Super-poweful alien who turns out to be a small boy. The actor who plays "The Squire" was AWESOME! He played a Boyish character to perfection. I consider it proof that actors in Star Trek really can act! Definitely worth watching.
