So bad it’s good?
A team beams to a planet to see how dead a bunch of colonist are, but they’re not dead at all!
The crew carries out an investigation to see why no one is dead. Is this some kind of reverse-murder-mystery?
A lady from Spock’s past?
Spock gets shot by a flower!
The spores made Spock lame
I guess the amusement for this episode is supposed to be us getting to see Spock clownin around
Then more people get shot by flowers. They get happy too.
Bones starts acting all southerney??
Kirk is the last sad person
Kirk was shot by a flower! It really snuck up on him
Kirk fights the happiness
Kirk realizes that getting angry snaps people out of it so he beams Spock up to make fun of him. This is what he chose to say: “Your mother was an encyclopedia”
Spock has to say goodbye to his lady friend. Aww
Spock says she wouldn’t be able to pronounce his other name
Kirk devises a plan to make everyone hate each other
Seriously, Bones is totally absurd in this episode
They managed to get the crew back to normal! Hooray? Spock said it was the only time he had been happy.
