OBSESSION

Original Air date:
December 15th, 1967

THE STORY:

While on a routine mission the crew encounters a red blood cell eating gas creature. The kind he once encountered before as a young officer that resulted in the death of the Captain, a death he blames himself before fear kept him from pulling the trigger of his phaser. Now James is obsessed with finding a way of killing this creature but how many more will fall for Kirk's quest for revenge?

THE OPINION:

Even though the monster was basically smoke, I thought it was kind of cool and the story works. Basically another classic episode.
