Elaan of Troyius

E is for Enslaved by Emotional Elaan but who is she? Elaan is a spoiled princess played by Frances Nuyen who cries in Star Trek's classic episode "Elaan of Troyius." When the USS Enterprise escorts the beautiful Dohlman Princess of Elas all blazes breaks loose. The idea was to unite two wartorn worlds, Elas and Troyius with an arranged marriage union except her glory has other ideas. She doesn't want to get hitched fullstop.

The fun begins when a substance in Elaan's tears biochemically casts its spell on Kirk, who falls in love with her. The Dolhman's secret "weapon" specifically weakens the Captain's will and crumbles his resolve! You can't really blame Kirk for trying to teach her some manners, a task her tutor, Ambassador Petri despised totally.
Its true. Bones you've got to find me an antidote!
What will Spock and Dr McCoy try next? Can this lady killer really enslave Kirks heart forever? Will Dr McCoy find Kirk an antidote in time? How do you reverse falling in love with a beautiful babe?

I'm embarrassed to admit that I never watched Star Trek. But several of my friends are fans, and they will be delighted if I actually know what they're talking about once in a while! :-)

Doesn't sound like the later "Perfect Mate" at all!

Hehe good one Tony. the parallels are fascinating. TNGs Perfect Mate is kind and loving and TOS princess, Elaan likes to play rough.

Aw, you know Kirk was just using the old "I can't fight this feeling anymore" line so he'd have yet another reason to rip his shirt...

I miss the old crew. Time to watch again. Beam me up, Scotty!

Kirk wants an antidote? Nah, he's a horndog...

Thanks for the visit and comment, appreciate both. Been out of town and am playing catch up with my a-z visits. Loved the series, not sure I remember that particular show though. Beam me up Scottie. Traveling Suitcase A-Z

I've had so much fun watching Star Trek over the years, and this was a classic episode.
