Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Volume 5 from the DVD collection of original Star Trek programs includes "What Are Little Girls Made Of?" Written by Robert Bloch (author of the novel Psycho, the basis of Hitchcock's film), the episode finds Captain Kirk (William Shatner) and nurse Christine Chapel (Majel Barrett) beaming down to planet Exo III, where Christine is to be reunited with her fiancé, Dr. Roger Korby (Michael Strong). The meeting is less than joyful, however, when it becomes clear that Korby has been developing androids that he intends to spread throughout the galaxy--using the Enterprise as his delivery vehicle. This was certainly the first significant performance for Majel Barrett in the Trek family; longtime fans know she went on to play Lwaxana Troi on The Next Generation (and Mrs. Gene Roddenberry in real life). An entertaining episode all around, with the notion of an android Kirk somehow amusing. (Maybe it was the android who sang on that notorious Shatner album.) Fans of '60s TV will also enjoy the performance of Ted Cassidy (the original Lurch from TV's The Addams Family) as the giant android, Ruk.

Also on this DVD is "Dagger of the Mind," another mad-doctor drama. This time, Kirk delivers supplies to a penal colony on Tantalus V, where he meets the renowned Dr. Tristan Adams. Adams has been working on the development of a neural neutralizer to control and manipulate dangerous patients. When Kirk threatens to expose him as a dangerous megalomaniac, Adams uses the technology on the unfortunate captain. This tense piece set in a madhouse atmosphere makes for a riveting episode, with a few unhinged performances adding to the fun.--Tom Keogh

This DVD is very good. The two classic trek episodes "What Are Little Girls Made Of?" and "Dagger of the Mind" ably explore the theme of 'man playing god' with thoughtful and entertaining results. For pure fun check out the performance by Ted Cassidy(Lurch), he's truly memorable as the menacing "Ruk." In "Dagger" you also have the original Vulcan Mind-Meld, as well as a truly hysterical performance by Morgan Woodward as Dr. Simon Van Gelder. (Woodward later played another lunatic in 2nd seasons "The Omega Glory") There was confusion regarding Kirks racist mutterings toward Spock while on the centrifuge in "What Are Little Girls Made Of?" I believe Kirk was simply trying to infuse his duplicate with an attitude so uncharacteristic that even the dull witted Vulcan would have to take notice! I would've given this 5 stars except for the lack of extra goodies. I'm afraid Paramount is simply holding back so they can release yet another "SUPER SPECIAL SUPREME STAR TREK EDITION" in a few more years.

Format: DVD
There are times when digitially remastering an epiosde may not help it out too much. Such is the case with Dagger of the Mind, in which obvious film flaws are enhanced and the fact that matt prints were used for certain scenes is that much more obvious. But, you can't fault the episode just for that. Dagger is certainly an entertaining, if not overly deep episode of Trek. It's got the first Vulcan mind-meld, a good performance by Shatner and some interesting ideas. It's just not up to classic Trek's usual standards of excellence.
As for What Are Little Girls Made Of?, it's always been a personal favorite of mine--and not just for Sherri Jackson's costume. It features one of the earliest examples of Kirk vs. machines and just how Kirk is able to outwit them. It contains one of the most chilling lines in all of Trek with the famous line, "Androids don't eat, Ms. Chapel." Shatner is given a lot to do here and does some double duty--and he does it well.
Again, another Trek well worth taking.

Out of most of the episodes of ST:TOS I've seen, "What Are Little Girls Made Of?" dissapoints me just a bit - but is nonetheless a decent one. The mood is dark and spooky; I think fans of older classic sci-fi would enjoy this more. Am I the only one who doesn't get the part where Kirk makes utterances about Spock on the centrifuge/cloning device? How does this send a 'message' to Spock on the Enterprise? Could this be a hole in the plot? The effects are pretty neat, and the premise is wild, even by today's standards. The thing that always boggles me about ST:TOS is that all this was implemented in the mid to late 60's - a true golden age in every way.
"Dagger of the Mind" is pretty deep and reveals some of the stranger thinking of the writers - who would of thought that a man can die from having his brain emptied? Far-out. This eposode illustrates the "Live by the sword, die by the sword" addage that is basic to all classic literature.
The writers never cease to amaze me - even in the lesser episodes - with their thought-provoking story lines and deep character development. Who cares if the special EFX are hokey? Shakespeare never used much more than a prop-less set, and his plays are timeless. I see a similar future for our beloved classic Star Trek series.

Format: DVD
No less a brilliant horror/sci-fi writer then Robert Bloch himself wrote the screenplay to the first ep here and so you can expect quality. Nurse Chapel's old flame, presumed lost and dead for years, suddenly turns up but only in true Trek fashion not in the way one would assume. Roddenberry's sermonising continues as we ponder the question: how far should we go to improve the human race? Should we accept our failings and work around them to make the best of things or do we go all the way to eliminate the very things that make us human? Great acting here from Michael Strong as the protagonist, mad doctor and the original Lurch from the Addams Family as well. Great episode.

In the second ep, we get another mad doctor story which explores a similar thesis to the first ep with a slight twist, asking the question of where does healing stop and playing God begin? How much do we impose our will and ideas on others and how much should we respect free will? We also get the first Vulcan mind-meld in this ep. Great acting by James Gregory as the long-suffering whistle-blowing assistant to the evil Dr. Adams as well.

Overall, 2 strong eps that stand out from the first season.

Recommended.

Star Trek: The Original Series Volume 5 features two episodes originally aired in 1966:
"What Are Little Girls Made Of?:" Kirk meet's nurse Chapel's long lost fiance, Dr. Korby, who has learned to create android duplicates of people and madly schemes to populate the galaxy with them. The "little girl" of the title turns out to be a comely full-grown female android, Andrea (played by Sherry Jackson), but that doesn't stop Kirk from makin' the moves. The episode is perhaps best known for Andrea's non-existent costume (compliments to costumer William Ware Theiss). Ted Cassidy from "The Addams Family" guest stars as a quite intimidating android. Bottom Line: Excellent and eerie sci-fi that nicely explores the dehuminization of mechanization theme. It's dead serious and tragic though, so if you're looking for humor look elsewhere. GRADE: A
"Dagger of the Mind:" Kirk investigates a questionable space penal colony that uses a manipulative brainwashing device to control its prisoners. Episode is notable for showcasing the most beautiful woman to ever appear on Star Trek, Dr. Helen Noel, played by Marianna Hill. You can catch Ms. Hill in "High Plains Drifter" (1973) as the curly blond (...)Bottom Line: The final act sort of just fizzles out with an air of uncertainty, the creators either didn't have time or didn't know how to properly finish the story. No matter, the episode is well worth watching, if for no other reson than to behold the awe-inspiring beauty of Marianna Hill (Helen Noel). GRADE: C+
