Star Trek “The Alternative Factor” (part 3 of 6)

This goes on for a while until one of them wins (I guess), and suddenly we spin back to reality (or live action, at least), as there are more flashes of light, and Lazarus is being knocked around on top of a hill. He staggers down and we see Kirk is…

Well, I’d like to think Shatner was just making fun of the ridiculous way Robert Brown moves in character, but the idea is that he’s recovering from the incident coming to an end.

Kirk notices Lazarus while he does maybe the most melodramatic fall I’ve ever seen, and rushes to his aid. Spock rushes up to report… Well, nothing of real importance, other than noting the spot they’re in is the focal point for the incidents… whatever the hell they are.
