5.0 out of 5 stars Darbys' Gem, October 13, 2000
This review is from: Star Trek - The Original Series, Vol. 6, Episodes 12 & 13: Miri/ The Conscience Of The King (DVD)
I find it hard to give any of these episodes less than 5 stars because they are the cornerstone of Scifi, but I will say Kim Darby as "Miri" is amazing. She may be my favorite guest actor on the show and that covers a lot of ground. I don't agree that the plot was weak, I found it believeable. My only knock is the 'other' kids seem weak. Darbys' reaction to being 'found' at the beginning of the episode needs to be seen. McCoy and Spock are becoming an item to behold with this 12th episode, incomparable. Who does McCoy call out for in his time of pain? Spock.
The second episode here is not one of my faves but it is good. I never liked Kevin Riley much and was glad to see him leave, since he was a pivotal character of this episode it's no wonder I frown upon it ever so slightly. Anton Moss as "Karidian" is nice but nothing earth shattering.
This disc is a must though (aren't they all?) for the foundation building of Spock and McCoy and for the wonderful performance of Kim Darby. I wish someone would do a follow up "novel" with her character, "Miri" ... who knows maybe it will be me! There's just Something About Miri.
