Mission Log #25 – Episode 025 – The Devil in the Dark

The Enterprise comes to the aid of a group of miners being hounded by a monster deep under ground. But – in true Star Trek fashion – we are left to wonder whether there is a monster at all when we put “The Devil in the Dark” in the Mission Log.

    Star Trek was a show about people. There, I’ve said it. Rodenberry’s genius was in creating a science-fiction series that didn’t depend on a big concept (Battlestar Galactica, Space: 1999) a mystery (Lost) or a twist (Twilight Zone). And as such, a lot of the episodes were vehicles for character development. The horta was a plot device; nothing more. But what wonderful interplay between the three leads: Spock’s loyalty for his friend, McCoy’s easy relationship with his Captain; and we learn a lot about Kirk’s style, his humour and tenacity. A really wonderful episode.
