Okay, so “For the World is Hollow and I Have Touched the Sky” is pretty much the best Star Trek title I’ve ever heard, and I was surprised by how much I loved the episode itself–especially considering that I had all but forgotten it until now. If I didn’t know any better I would suspect the creators had discovered an unproduced script from season 2 and decided to use it in the third season, it’s that good. I don’t want to say too much more about it, because I really want you to watch it for yourself [original | remastered], but it’s a Dr. McCoy episode and probably one of the best installments in the series. Also, it stars Catherine Woodville (pictured below), whose character died in the first episode of The Avengers, thus giving everyone someone to avenge. She later married Patrick Macnee, Mr. Steed himself.
Anyway, it’s something to watch when you tire of the Thanksgiving Day parade (I don’t even recognize half of the characters featured in balloon form anymore!) and football, or while you’re recovering from your meal. Please drop by the Star Trek Re-Watch at The Viewscreen and share your thoughts on it!
