[TOS] Season 3, Episode 13: Elaan of Troyius
I like seeing how Kirk deals with angry people, but this episode is too ridiculous. They definitely fill their quota on sparkly outfits though.

Kirk has to pick up a lady named Elaan that is marrying a Troyian in order to bring peace. There better be more to this episode than a reference. This green guy is a Troyian meant to teach Elaan the Troyian etiquette
The Elasians show up. If I was tasked with coming up with costumes for a group of people that are supposed to be really tough, this is what I would’ve come up with too
Then Elaan shows up. The actress’s name is France and she’s from France.
The Troyian really wants Elaan to wear a necklace
Elaan hates everything!
“Engines are for mechanics and menials.” Elaan is mean
The Klingons are tailing them!
The Troyian gets stabbed and blames Kirk’s advice. Now Kirk feels like he needs to teach Elaan proper etiquette.
But she doesn’t have very good manners
An Elasian guard sabotages Enterprise because he loves Elaan and doesn’t want her to get married. Now they need some more dilithium crystals
Kirk gets Elaan’s magic tears on him, which makes him fall in love with her, as you would expect.
The Troyian still really wants Elaan to wear the necklace
The Klingons start attacking!
But then Kirk notices Elaan’s necklace has some dilithium crystals. Also, why did they need to make four different sparkly outfits for Elaan? Couldn’t they have just made her one outfit, and spent the extra money on a new Romulan ship or something?
