Re: TOS S1: The Corbomite Maneuver

This episode introduced much of the daily living aboard a starship, the relationships in the crew, (both humorous and testy), the fact that alien life was a scary concept, and that real alien life might differ dramatically from our previous "martian-like" images. (real Baalok vs. the puppet he used to be "scary"). It also furthered our understanding of how weapons and the transporter system on the Enterprise would work. I think Jammer's review is limited by his youthful age and does not take into consideration how early in the series this was. It really is classic, and the episode which made me completely buy in to Star Trek as a teenager when it first aired. Yes, the episode is slow, but TV shows and movies were much slower back then. The current pace of action adventure in TV and movies is a recent development.

Re: TNG S7: Eye of the Beholder

I could not figure out at the end: Was Pierce an hallucination all along? If he died 8 years ago and left some of himself on the ship, then all those scenes where they look him up to determine he had been assigned 6 months earlier on the ship, and talking to him in engineering, and other interactions with the guy throughout the episode - all those were hallucinations?

Just didn't make sense to me.
