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

Lazarus beams off the ship to the planet (how does he know how to work the transporter? Hell if I know) and I swear, between shots of him in this scene, the beard changes. Maybe it’s just too flimsy an appliance to show up well consistently, but damn!

Star Trek "The Alternative Factor" (part 6 of 6)

Kirk heads off after him, and we cut back to the planet as Lazarus runs to his ship. The beard is full again, by the way, and he puts the crystals in a panel on the door, and he’s about to leave when Kirk runs to the ship.

Lazarus is alarmed as Kirk approaches and shouts, “No, don’t! Not you!” Kirk reaches into the ship and freezes, vanishing in a sizzling flash which takes us to our last commercial break as Lazarus screams “Nooooo!”

Emotional, isn’t he?
