Star Trek “The Alternative Factor” (part 2 of 6)

Kirk and Company rush to the fallen man, who’s still alive (with that name, I would hope he’d be a little hard to put down for too long). Observe closely the man’s beard, as it will change drastically throughout the episode. It’s clearly meant to be related to the twist the plot takes, but to be honest, things get so confusing I’m not willing to concede any ground here.

Sadly, this will prove to be the only really entertaining thing in the entire episode. Yep, we are stuck with facial hair as our sole source of entertainment. I should really check my life insurance policy before starting these things.
