[TOS] Season 2, Episode 11 (Netflix: S2 E11): Friday’s Child
Your opinion of this episode might depend on how forgiving you are of ridiculous outfits. One of my favorite story telling techniques is to not fill every shot with something that looks stupid. Maybe we’ve seen this one too many times, and are no longer shocked by the costumes, so we’ve started to appreciate the cool things about the episode. We like the situation created between the Klingons and Starfleet, we like some of the aspects of the aliens, and we like Bones.

The lady goes out and says she killed the three of them while they were asleep. The Klingon wants to go check
They find it inappropriate that he doubts such a prestigious person. He starts zapping people
Kirk doesn’t like that guy.
Kirk: “There’s just one thing I want”
Spock: “The Klingon?”
Kirk: “One of us must get him”
Spock: “Revenge, captain?”
Kirk: “Why not”
This guy yells
It gave his friend enough time to ninja star the Klingon!
