"To go where no one has gone before' and in this episode, they did that with a lot of fun involved.
Kate Spencer
Plato's Stepchildren has an intriguing set-up, but the episode simply goes way too far in silliness when Kirk and Spock are being forced to perform.

You know, when it comes to big-time over-the-top sci-fi cheeseball, the third season of classic `Star Trek' really hits the spot!

Plato's Stepchildren is one of my top four favorite episodes, along with Space Seed, the City on the Edge of Forever, and Mirror Mirror. I've been waiting a long time for it to be released on DVD and am very happy that it will be soon. It also has historic value in the fact that the first inter-racial kiss on national television took place in that episode. Don't let overly sarcastic commentary spoil your fun!

Plato's Stepchildren Aliens with ESP powers control the TOS crew. It is somewhat unfair...I never got to kiss Uhura.
Wink of an Eye...We know Kirk likes fast women. This time he gets one in hyperacceleration.

I absolutely love this episode! Of course, this may have something to do with the fact that I'm a huge Spock fan, and love to see him act more human, which is rare. But there are also a lot of other great things about this episode. It's really fun, although you should probably watch it twice if you want to experience the fun in the silliness as much as possible, since you're worrying too much the first time about whether they'll ever get out! And, of course, the show itself took great strides with the showing of the first inter-racial kiss, between William Shatner and Nichelle Nichols, not to mention the one shared by Leonard Nimoy and Majel Barrett! But that's really what Star Trek is all about, isn't it? "To go where no one has gone before' and in this episode, they did that with a lot of fun involved.

Both of these episodes share one thing in common: they boldly went where no network program had gone before, in terms of ... bypassing the censors. "Wink of an Eye" is the one in which comely Kathie Brown (the real-life Mrs. Darren McGavin) is seen brushing her hair beside William Shatner while Shatner sits on the edge of his bed pulling on his boot, and "Plato's Stepchildren" had T.V.'s first interracial kiss (William Shatner and Nichelle Nichols). Neither of these things may seem like that big of a deal today, but in 1968, let me tell you...!
"Wink" is an episode that makes little sense, but is thoroughly enjoyable. The entire race of the planet Scalos seems to have disappeared, without explanation. All that remains there is an occasional odd insect buzzing - which follows the landing party back to the Enterprise, after which Captain Kirk suddenly disappears from the bridge, in full view of the crew. What's really happened to him is the same thing that happened to the Scalosians, several of whom are now on board - he's speeded-up a thousand times, now moving too fast to be detected by anyone not accelerated at the same rate. Alien leader Kathie Brown, like all alien women, has taken a fancy to the charismatic Kirk, and intends to keep him with her after freezing the entire Enterprise crew and stealing his starship to move on to greener pastures. Forgetting the built-in logic problem of how matter accelerated to such an impossible speed keeps from falling apart by intense friction, this is still a pretty good little story, fascinating to watch, and Kathie Brown is a knockout, in addition to being a decent actress.
"Plato's Stepchildren" is a great episode, written by one of Outer Limits' best contributors, Meyer Dolinsky.

This was purchased for my son - he has all the episodes, but has to replace "worn out" ones periodically. Thanks

Which doesn't really say very much given the "quality" of the majority of the episodes of this season. Still, in the first episode which closely resembles the "Squire of Gothos" from Season 1, we get "superior" beings who become intoxicated with their powerful telekinetic powers and become living proof of George Orwell's famous pronouncement in "Animal Farm": "Power corrupts but absolute power corrupts absolutely." It what can be described a painful episode in more ways than one to watch, we get to see Spock and Kirk made to look extremely foolish and humiliated almost beyond bearing but then managed to turn the tables around and to have the self-restraint to not take revenge when the opportunity arises. All in all, this is an above average episode and is certainly one of the better ones of season 3.

In the second episode, we get another example of a powerful race rationalising that superior power makes it alright to impose your designs on the less superior. Here, in order to perpetuate the species at all costs, the Scalosians decide that it's okay to kidnap, use and discard the unsuspecting for their greater "good". Like the first episode in this volume, while not great this episode still ranks among the better ones of the season.

Overall we get two episodes which highlight how power can easily corrupt and can even be "rationalised" as a perfectly good reason to abuse, exploit and manipulate the less powerful.

Two of the more interesting episodes make this volume come under the "nice to have but not essential" category if you picking which volumes to collect and keep.
