CATSPAW

Original Air date:
October 27th, 1967

THE STORY:

Kirk and Spock lead a party beaming down to a normally barren planet where a superior life form lures them by images of three witches, a cat and a castle, clearly fashioned to fit human minds. Inside the apparent puppet master Korob soon turns out to be the lesser of the cat, which transforms to her female form, Silvia, who is getting addicted to the earth-concept of luxury, and demonstrates mind-power that can heat up or freeze the whole Enterprise. While McCoy, Scotty and Sulu are totally controlled, Kirk and Spock engage in a desperate battle of wits, as even Korob is frightened to their side by the out-of-control cat-woman.

THE OPINION:

This is a Star Trek Halloween, the episode aired three days before Halloween and it was the only Halloween episode they did and I thought it was a shame. There was a mistake with the creatures true forms, but other then that a cool episode.
