The Evil Captain Kirk

Heres a couple that looks real sweet but I wonder what have these two been up to? Kirk looks like the cat that got the cream hugged by friendly Janice Rand from Star Trek's 'The Enemy Within.'

What happens when a transporter malfunction goes beserk and splits Captain Kirk into two beings, one indecisive and the other a violent hell-bent lunatic with inappropriate desires for the lovely yeoman here played by Grace Lee Whitney?

The dark side of Captain Kirk runs amok aboard the U.S.S. Enterprise NCC 1701 and creates havoc for Sulu who is stuck with the landing party freezing on the planet surface. The Enemy Within does a brilliant science fiction twist on Robert Louis Stevenson's 'the Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde' which is pure awesome.

Spock figures out that the 'Captain' requires both aspects of the 'Kirk personality' to function as a complete whole. Its really neat watching the good Kirk procrastinating over whether to allow Scotty and Spock use the transporter to restore him with his 'evil' twin.

Would you want to mind meld permanently with the EVIL Captain Kirk?

LOL, Its great seeing Spock creeping up behind 'evil' Kirk whos pointing a phaser directly at the good Captain Kirk.

I wouldn't mind melding with him for a minute. Just to see what it felt like.

M Pax said...

That was one of my favorite episodes. Evil Kirk was still fun.

I just watched this the other day on DVD. One of Shatner's better performances, I think

Maurice, prepare to experience the dark side! 'I don't need you' LOL.

M Pax, Kirk's split personality is really something special. The Enemy Within is a real classic.

James, its great seeing Spock's famous vulcan neck pinch sending Evil Kirk down in a heap.
