Elaan of Troyius

Devilboy is hitting season three of the original Star Trek. Last night I complained about “And The Children Shall Lead” and “Spock’s Brain ” but “Elaan of Troyius ” outdumbs either of them.

Fans complain about the Magic Blood in Star Trek Into Darkness but magical body fluids were well established in the Star Trek canon long before J.J.

Magic blood is goofy but magic tears that women use to control men is stupid by even men’s rights’ standards. It’s original by Deus ex machina standards but I can’t say anything more positive.

Like “And The Children Shall Lead,” the costumes for the episode were bargain basement. Elaan looks like a high school drama production of Cleopatra, a high school that suffered severe budget cuts.

Now “Let This Be Your Last Battlefield” is coming up. I guess the third season isn’t completely awful.
